Cargotec Oyj: Kalmar gains important orders from DP World for terminal tractors and empty container handlers for Jebel Ali Port

CARGOTEC CORPORATION, PRESS RELEASE, 24 APRIL 2014 AT 10 AM (EEST)

Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has been awarded important orders to supply DP
World's Jebel Ali Port in Dubai with 125 terminal tractors and 12 empty
container handlers. The orders were booked into Cargotec's 2014 first quarter
order intake with deliveries of the terminal tractors scheduled to be
completed by the end of third quarter 2014 and the empty container handlers
by the year end.

These orders further demonstrate Kalmar's growing partnership with DP World at
their flagship container port in Dubai, which has experienced another record
year with container volumes increasing to 13.6 million TEU in 2013. The
continued expansion of the port, principally through the new Container
Terminal 3 facility, the world's largest semi-automated terminal, will take
the total capacity at the port to 19 million TEU in 2014.

Of the 125 Kalmar Ottawa terminal tractors, 104 units feature a fixed fifth
wheel with pulling capacity of 85,000kg and 18 units have an elevated fifth
wheel for goose neck operation. The Kalmar DCF 80-45E8 empty container
handlers have the capacity to handle 8 tonnes and stack 8 containers high.
All machines are equipped with remote monitoring signals, enabling them to
operate on the semi-automated terminal.

Commenting on the order,Suresh Ananthanarayan
, Kalmar Sales Manager, said: "It's an honour for Kalmar to have the
opportunity to play an important role in DP World's expansion at this
prestigious Jebel Ali port. In the past months, Kalmar has been awarded
contracts to supply a total of nineteen empty container handlers, two new
version Gloria reachstackers and eight forklift trucks to be operational in
the Jebel Ali Terminals. We take great pride in such a good relationship and
would like to thank DP World UAE Region's management for their confidence and
trust in the Kalmar team."
