DP World, a global port operator, has contracted Kalmar, a cargotec company, to supply 15 rubber-tired gantry cranes (RTGs) for installation at the Nhava Sheva International Container Terminal (NSICT) in Mumbai, India.

The delivery of RTGs is scheduled to be completed during Q4 2020. The order also includes 24 months of on-site maintenance support.

NSICT is the first India’s public-private partnership project and is part of the country’s largest port, Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT), which handles 40% of India’s maritime trade.

The Kalmar Classic RTG crane combines the diesel and electric technology to give fuel efficiency, low emissions and easy maintenance. At 1,000 hours, the RTG has one of the longest maintenance intervals in the industry. In addition, its modular construction enables tailored operation to meet customer needs. The units being delivered to Nhava Sheva will be equipped with a Variable Speed Generator (VSG) to enable high fuel economy and lower emissions by automatically optimizing RPM according to the required power.
