Cargotec receives a port crane order from Russia

14.06.2011 – Cargotec is to deliver one Kalmar ship-to-shore (STS) crane and one Kalmar rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) crane to JSC NEVA-METAL, a division of OAO Severstal, operating at the port of St. Petersburg.  This will be Cargotec’s first STS crane in Russia, further strengthening the company’s presence in the country.

NEVA-METAL opted for a Kalmar STS crane capable of serving Panamax vessels in twin-lift operation with a 36-metre outreach, 16-metre backreach and 28-metre hoisting height.  The unit will feature optimised hoisting speeds that deliver accuracy while consuming very little energy.  The crane will operate without hydraulics, requiring less time for maintenance and eliminating the potential for oil leakages.  It will also feature an onboard electrical power generation set enabling regenerative energy flows.  The diesel power generator is very small when compared with traditional diesel powered STS cranes, meaning significantly less fuel usage.

Operational efficiency is also characteristic of Cargotec’s widely-successful all-electric Kalmar E-One2 RTG. This model features improved quality and safety, the industry’s lowest fuel consumption and longer maintenance intervals with better performance. The customer’s request for Cargotec’s 16-wheel design will not only cause less stress on the terminal surface but it also minimises actual tyre wear.

“Kalmar equipment is proven and innovative. The support we receive today from Cargotec’s local organisation for our Kalmar reachstackers and forklifts is prompt and professional. This gave us the confidence to invest in Kalmar cranes featuring reliable, fuel efficient technologies which is leading in the industry,” says NEVA-METAL’s General Director, Mikhail Panov.
