Port of Tauranga orders new equipment to enhance container handling capabilities

Port of Tauranga in New Zealand ordered four Kalmar hybrid straddle carriers, which are scheduled to be delivered during the fourth quarter of the year.

In recent years, the port has invested significantly in equipment that will enable it to handle the largest container vessels visiting New Zealand. The Tauranga port equipment already includes a number of Kalmar straddle carriers, including three hybrid models purchased in 2020.

Dan Kneebone, property & infrastructure manager of Port of Tauranga, commented, "We purchased our first Kalmar straddle carriers back in 2000, and those machines are still fully functional after 22 years. We aim to be carbon-zero by 2050 and to reduce our emissions by 5% per year relative to cargo volumes. To achieve this target we need to renew our fleet with eco-efficient equipment."

Port of Tauranga, located on New Zealand’s North Island, is the country’s largest container terminal and its premier freight gateway, handling around 25 million tons of cargo and 1.2 million TEUs per year.
