Cargotec’s Kalmar has signed an agreement with MSC PSA European Terminal and PSA Antwerp to deliver a total of 34 Kalmar Straddle Carriers for their terminals in Antwerp, Belgium. Of the machines, 29 will be delivered to MPET and five to PSA Antwerp. The order was booked in Cargotec's Q4 2021 intake, with deliveries scheduled for Q3 2022.MPET and PSA Antwerp's carbon emissions are produced mainly from diesel-operated equipment such as straddle carriers, terminal tractors and other terminal vehicles. To decarbonise their heavy duty logistics, the companies are investing in greener equipment. The purchase of 15 hybrid straddle carriers will help to reduce C02 emissions by at least 15% versus conventional diesel machines, equivalent to around 600 tonnes per year. This is a transitional solution towards greener operations. To MPET, Kalmar will deliver 10 hybrid straddle carriers and 19 diesel-electric straddle carriers. All of the Kalmar straddle carriers to be delivered to PSA Antwerp will be hybrids.As the largest container handlers in the port of Antwerp, MPET and PSA Antwerp are focusing their climate efforts on four key areas: greenhouse gases & air quality, renewable energy, water conservation and waste reduction.
