Cargotec Corporation: Kalmar receives double order for the new Super Gloria reachstacker with a world record lifting capacity of 130 tonnes


Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has gained an order for two Super Gloria
reachstackers from Tadarsa Logistics S.L. in Aviles, Spain. The largest
reachstackers ever built, the Kalmar Gloria DRG1300-92ZX will have the
capability of lifting 130 tonnes and will be utilised specifically to lift
heavy wind turbine sections, which can weigh up to 260 tonnes. The order has
been booked into Cargotec's 2015 first quarter order intake with delivery
scheduled for November 2015.

The previous world lift record was set by Kalmar in Sweden in September 2014,
when a reachstacker lifted 103 tonnes in front of an assembled audience.
However, this latest machine has extended lifting capacity further than any
previous reachstacker built for industrial application.

Stefan Johansson
, Director, Sales and Marketing, Kalmar Reachstackers and Empty Container
Handlers is delighted with Kalmar's ability to rise to the challenge: "This
order presented a technical challenge that we were very pleased to meet. It
is testament to Kalmar's engineers that every time we set a record like this
we reinforce our position as the market leader. It was also a pleasure
working with Tadarsa Logistics, a large international company that is so
highly respected in its sector. They needed a reachstacker to handle a
critical application and this called for the development of the biggest
machine ever built. Once again, I am delighted with Kalmar's ability to rise
to the challenge."

Samuel Iglesias
, General Manager, Tadarsa, said: "We chose to work with Kalmar because they
are such a well-respected global company and we couldn't trust anyone else to
take on such a mammoth task. Kalmar had an excellent concept and proposal and
their team was outstanding from beginning to end. They met our specification
in every way and we are looking forward to the arrival of the two Super
Gloria's and the huge impact they will make on our business."

Tadarsa, who already have four Kalmar DRF450 reachstackers operating in Spain
and two Kalmar DRF450 operating in Brazil, has over fifty years of experience
specialising in the manufacturing of pressure vessels and large metal
structures. They operate out of 20,000m² of manufacturing area, less than 1km
away from Avilés port in northern Spain.
