Kalmar to Supply TCPH Terminal with Fully Electric RTG Solution

Kalmar is set to supply Tan Cang – Phu Huu terminal (TCPH) with two Kalmar Zero Emission rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs). The order was booked in Cargotec’s 2020 Q3 order intake, with delivery scheduled for Q3 2021.

The Phu Huu terminal is operated by TCPH, a joint stock company with the main shareholders being Saigon Newport Corporation (SNP) and Ben Nghe Port LLC. The terminal is located in Phu Huu area, District 9, Ho Chi Minh City and plays a bigrole as an extension arm of Cat Lai terminal.

The fully electric Kalmar Zero Emission RTGs will help TCPH to cut costs and eliminate at-source emissions without compromising on productivity, reliability or flexibility. The new units will be used to expand the terminal’s capacity sharply.

Mr. Nguyen Minh Hai, TCPH’s Director, said: “Kalmar equipment has been delivering reliable performance for SNP for over two decades, backed by a competent and committed local services team UNICO VINA JSC that has extensive knowledge of RTG preventive and corrective maintenance. Cutting emissions and noise, while acquiring an advanced trolley drive and higher stacking capacity (1-over-6 high) is an important goal for us, and the Kalmar Zero Emission RTG is the ideal solution to help us achieve this goal.”

Daniel Ho, VP, Sales, APAC, Kalmar, said: “We are delighted to be able to continue our long-standing collaboration with SNP and their subsidiaries with this latest order. Over the years we have delivered a notable number of RTGs to this important customer and its affiliates, and now we are proud to help them improve the sustainability of their operations with our leading zero-emission crane technology.”
