Tanzania selects Kalmar equipment for Dar es Salaam port

Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has been awarded a contract to supply Tanzania Ports Authority (TPA) with a total of six Kalmar rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) cranes for use at Dar es Salaam port. The order was booked in Cargotec’s 2020 Q1 order intake, with delivery scheduled for Q1 of 2021.

Dar es Salaam port handles about 95% of Tanzania’s international trade and serves the landlocked countries of Malawi, Zambia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi, Rwanda and Uganda.

TPA and Kalmar have developed a productive and collaborative working relationship over the years.

The units delivered to TPA will be configured to handle 6+1 wide with 1-over-5 high stacking and will have a lifting capacity of 40 tonnes under the spreader. They will also be equipped with a variable speed generator, which enables even greater fuel economy and lower emissions by automatically optimising RPM according to the required power.
