New Equipment for PCE Terminal
As part of the plan to become one of the largest container terminals in Chile, Puerto Central S.A (PCE) in San Antonio is building a new multipurpose terminal with a 15m draft, allowing the port to handle Post-Panamax ships.
Regarding this, Kalmar, part of Cargotec, said that they have received an order from PCE for 24 Kalmar Ottawa T2 terminal tractors and three Kalmar DCG160-12 forklift trucks.
Phase 1 of the project, which will transform Puerto Central into a multipurpose terminal with a capacity of 1.3 million TEUs, has already benefited from the delivery of seven Kalmar E-One2 rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs) in July 2015.
The order was signed in June 2015 with delivery expected in November 2015.
