Kalmar has received an order from the Port of Vienna’s WienCont Container Terminal for three new twin lift capability empty container handlers, with delivery set for April 2017. The contract marks the first order of equipment from Kalmar’s DCG80-100 empty container handler range which launched on November 9, 2016.

The WienCont Container Terminal is a trimodal terminal serving rail, road and inland waterways. WienCont’s annual capacity of approximately 480,000 TEU makes it the largest combined transport terminal on the Danube and its capacity is expected to grow by 3-5% per year over the next five years.

The new model 10-tonne capacity handlers are fitted with options including reverse warning system, tire pressure monitoring system and the Kalmar Smart Fleet monitoring system that enables a more effective management of the container handling operations. WienCont is returning to a fleet of Kalmar-only equipment, enabling a streamlining of maintenance needs.

“In order to prepare for the future, it is important that we choose high quality equipment with modern capabilities that will meet our growing handling requirements. We have chosen Kalmar as the brand to trust for their reliable machines, low downtime, and cost-effective service for our intermodal operations,” says Robert Groiss, Managing Director of WienCont Container.
