Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has received an order for twenty-one forklifts, five empty container handlers, and four reachstackers for the New Port Project (NPP) in Qatar. The order, which also includes training to serve port operations and equipment handling, was booked into the 2016 third quarter intake. Deliveries have started in the first quarter of 2017.

On 19 June 2007, The State of Qatar began the development of NPP, one of the world’s largest greenfield port developments. The QAR 27 Billion (USD 7.4 Billion) megaproject will span a 26.8 square kilometer area and is strategically located south of Doha. NPP includes a new port (Hamad Port), a new base for the Qatar Emiri Naval Forces and the Qatar Economic Zone 3. The brand new multi-use port began partial operations at the end of 2015 and is now in full operation after the opening of Container Terminal 1 in December 2016, providing a throughput capacity of two million TEUs per year.789976
