DP World Djazair - a joint venture between DP World and the state of Algeria - has awarded Cargotec an order for 10 Kalmar DRF450 reachstackers. The machines will be delivered during the first quarter 2010. This order was booked in the fourth quarter 2009 order intake.
The new units, featuring increased load capacities of 45 tonnes in the first row, 30 tonnes in the second row and 15 tonnes in the third row, will help DP World meet its high standards in terminal efficiency and productivity as the terminal operator looks to expand the handling capacity of its facility in Algeria.
Paul Michon, Director, Global Key Account for DP World, commented on the order, “Cargotec is proud to be a close partner of DP World. We have been serving their needs with an emphasis on respect and reliability for more than 20 years, and I am pleased to have DP World as one of our worldwide customers.”
The Kalmar machines on order are presently the most innovative reachstackers on the market. The DRF units are equipped with first class components with environmental care taken into consideration. This reachstacker model has also earned a reputation for safety and reliability while being engineered to withstand some of the toughest environments in the world.
