Patrick Terminals orders new generation Kalmar machines

Kalmar has agreed with Patrick Terminals to supply a total of ten Kalmar AutoStrad units, seven of the eighth generation Kalmar AutoStrads will operate in Brisbane and three in Sydney.

The machines are part of Patrick Terminals' ongoing fleet renewal programme and will join the existing fleet of over 130 Kalmar straddle carriers, replacing some of the older-generation Kalmar AutoStrads.

The order for the fully automated straddle carriers was booked in 2020 Q2 order intake of Cargotec, the mother company of Kalmar, with the delivery of the machines scheduled to be completed during the first quarter of 2021.

Patrick Terminals is one of Australia's leading container terminal operators, handling over 3 million TEU annually. The company operates some of Australia's most technologically advanced terminals at four strategically located ports: Brisbane AutoStrad Terminal, Sydney AutoStrad Terminal, Melbourne Terminal and Fremantle Terminal in Western Australia.

In January 2020 the company signed a comprehensive software maintenance and support agreement with Kalmar covering the equipment automation systems at Brisbane and Sydney.

Daniel Ho, vice president, solutions sales, APAC, Kalmar, highlighted the long term co-operation between the two companies, saying “Our collaboration with Patrick Terminals stretches back many years.”
