Kalmar Delivers Super-heavy Forklift Trucks to Finnish Steel Mill

Kalmar Delivers Super-heavy Forklift Trucks to Finnish Steel Mill
Danny Gill

Kalmar is set to deliver two super-heavy forklift trucks to a specialist industrial services provider Pentti Hämeenaho Oy, which runs logistical operations at the Raahe steel mill in north-western Finland. The delivery will take place during the first quarter of 2017.

With a lifting capacity of 62 tons, the two new super-heavy forklifts will be the highest-capacity forklifts that Kalmar has delivered since one of its machines broke the world record by lifting 90 tons in 1991. They will be used to handle steel coils weighing anything from five to 30 tons, and will be capable of single and double coil lifting.

These forklifts, which will handle extreme weights, are the result of hard work by our dedicated teams. This prestigious order demonstrates our outstanding capabilities in developing reliable and flexible customer solutions that are able to meet the heavy-lifting demands of customers around the world.”
