Cargotec’s Kalmar Wins its Largest Crane Upgrade Contract Ever at PTP
Danny Gill

Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has been awarded a contract to upgrade seven ship-to-shore (STS) cranes at the Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) in Malaysia. With a value of more than EUR 20 million, the order is the largest crane upgrade project to date globally for Kalmar. Site work is scheduled to commence in the third quarter of 2016.

PTP is equipped with 57 super post-panamax cranes, and a substantial fleet of Kalmar equipment, including empty container handlers, terminal tractors, and reachstackers. The upgrade project involves increasing the safe working load of the seven STS cranes, originally supplied by IMPSA, from 50 to 61 tonnes, modernizing the cranes’ control and electrical systems, as well as introducing a wide range of other safety and capability enhancements.

Collin Swee, Key Account Manager for MMC Ports at Kalmar, says: “We’re very pleased to have signed this large order with PTP, which is our biggest contract to date for crane upgrades. Upgrading the handling capabilities and safety features of existing cranes is a cost-effective solution for forward-thinking terminals that are seeking to maximize their capability with existing equipment. We’re proud of our strong track record working with customers all around the world on complex projects such as these, and are delighted that PTP has chosen Kalmar to help them realize their goals for future capability.
