Kalmar to Deliver New Fleet of Cargo-handling Equipment to Finland
Danny Gill

Kalmar is set to deliver four diesel-electric straddle carriers, ten heavy-duty terminal tractors for RoRo handling, four light forklift trucks and two heavy forklift trucks to Finish port operator Steveco. Delivery will take place during the latter part of 2016 and into the first quarter of 2017.

Steveco operates four sea ports in Finland: Mussalo and Hietanen in Kotka, Hamina and Vuosaari in Helsinki, which are located on the main cargo routes in and out of Finland and Russia. The new machines will join an already established fleet of Kalmar equipment including 39 straddle carriers, 50 terminal tractors, 80 forklift trucks and 10 reachstackers.


Henri Kuitunen, CEO at Steveco said, “With cargo volumes at our terminals growing, we require equipment that delivers high performance and reliability combined with low operating and maintenance costs, and this is precisely what Kalmar machines give us. Kalmar’s responsive local technical support keeps our operations running smoothly around the clock, all year round. We’re very pleased to be able to continue our long-standing relationship with Kalmar by renewing our equipment fleet.”

Santtu Tanskanen, Market Area Director, Finland at Kalmar said, “Our cooperation with Steveco dates back to 1950s when we delivered the very first Valmet machines to Steveco’s predecessor in the Port of Kotka.  Throughout the years we have enjoyed a tight working relationship and are happy to be able to support Steveco once again in their development plans in enhancing their operations.”
