CARGOTEC subsidiary, Kalmar, has signed a contract with BMT Pacific for four SmartPower Rubber-Tyred Gantry (RTG) Cranes.

The new machines are to serve BMT Pacific’s solely owned river terminal in Chao Phraya River, in Central Thailand.

The order, booked in Cargotec’s 2017 third quarter intake with delivery set for the third quarter of 2018, is to boost the inland waterways capability of BMT Pacific.

BMT Pacific provides an integrated terminal and logistics services in Thailand.

Kalmar set up shop in Thailand in the 1980s and during the past two decades has provided local service and strategic support to customers in partnership with local Kalmar dealer SCP Mechanical.

“The deal is another example of the seamless cooperation between BMT Pacific and Kalmar, which is further accelerating our competitiveness in the industry,” said BMT Pacific general manager Rangsant Tonchanachai.

Kalmar South and Southeast Asia vice-president, Teo Yew Boon, said the order confirmed BMT Pacific’s commitment to long term and mutually beneficial cooperation.

“We’re happy to continue supporting them in their path towards sustainable growth,” he said.

The Kalmar SmartPower RTG crane is said to offer “an environmentally sustainable solution” through its fuel saving capabilities and electric design.
