Cargotec Oyj: Kalmar's zero emission RTGs set to provide additional capacity at leading Turkish port

CARGOTEC CORPORATION, PRESS RELEASE, 2 MAY 2014 AT 10 A.M. (EEST)

Kalmar, part of Cargotec, will supply eight rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs)
to Turkish port operator Evyapport. The port is a gateway to global commerce
for Istanbul, Kocaeli and Adapazari region and it continues to expand its
container operations to industrial organisations around the world. Kalmar
machines will be delivered between Q4/2014 and Q2/2015. The order was booked
into Cargotec's 2013 fourth quarter order intake.

Evyapport selected electric Kalmar E-One2RTGs to facilitate the expansion of
their operations as they considerably improve handling efficiency and lower
operating costs. The cranes have the capability of handling 7+1 wide with 1
over 6 high stacking and a maximum lift capacity of 41 tonnes. The units run
on mains electric power, provided via a bus bar automatic arm, delivering
zero emissions.

The cranes also operate with SmartRail, Kalmar's electronic driver assistance
system for enhancing RTG controls and operation. SmartRail helps the operator
to use a higher travelling speed, minimising handling time per container.

MrSedat Topuz,
Support Services Manager, Evyapport commented: "Once again, we were very
impressed in how Kalmar responded with a solution that met our needs
precisely. The quality and reliability of the equipment is world class and
the technological advancements make a considerable contribution to lowering
the costs of ownership. Furthermore, the speed at which the cranes could be
delivered was really excellent and helped us to plan our schedule of
activities as the port expands."

Mika Virtanen,
Vice President for RTG and STS cranes at Kalmar: "We are delighted to have
gained another valuable order from Evyapport. As terminal operators gear up
for higher container throughput the requirement for equipment to deliver
improved efficiency and cost reduction becomes increasingly important. More
operators are now specifying Kalmar's electrically powered RTGs because they
significantly reduce fuel costs, when compared to diesel engines. The
resulting zero emissions means they are a very environmentally-friendly
option."

Evyapport is Turkey's fifth largest terminal with a capacity of 800,000 TEU, a
total area of 265,000 m² and 1,171 metre berth. The terminal already operates
with several types of Kalmar equipment, including RTG and STS cranes,
terminal tractors, forklift trucks, reachstackers and empty container
handlers.
