KALMAR has announced an order to supply Tan Cang-Phu Huu terminal in Vietnam with two zero emission rubber-tyred gantry cranes, in the 2021 third quarter.
The Phu Huu terminal is operated by TCPH, a joint stock company with the main shareholders being Saigon Newport Corporation and Ben Nghe Port LLC. The terminal is located in Phu Huu area, District 9, Ho Chi Minh City and plays a vital role as an extension arm of Cat Lai terminal.
Since its establishment in 1989, SNP has grown to become Vietnam’s largest container terminal operator. The company provides a variety of services including cargo handling, logistics, salvage, piloting, and multi-modal transportation. SNP’s cargo-handling fleet includes a wide variety of Kalmar equipment, including RTGs, reachstackers, terminal tractors and empty container handlers.
The fully electric Kalmar zero emission RTGs will help TCPH to cut costs and eliminate at-source emissions without compromising on productivity, reliability or flexibility. The new units will be used to expand the terminal’s capacity sharply.
Nguyen Minh Hai, TCPH’s director said Kalmar equipment “has been delivering reliable performance for SNP for over two decades, backed by a competent and committed local services team UNICO VINA JSC that has extensive knowledge of RTG preventive and corrective maintenance”.
“Cutting emissions and noise, while acquiring an advanced trolley drive and higher stacking capacity is an important goal for us, and the Kalmar zero emission RTG is the ideal solution to help us achieve this goal,” Mr Nguyen said.
