RCI to Build New Jetty in Taicang

Kalmar, part of Cargotec, and Rainbow-Cargotec Industries Co., Ltd (RCI) celebrated yesterday the ground breaking of a new jetty at RCI’s facilities in Taicang, China.

RCI is a joint venture established in Taicang, Jiangsu Province, China, in 2012 between Cargotec Corporation and Jiangsu Rainbow Heavy Industries.

It is responsible for the production of Kalmar rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs) and ship-to-shore cranes (STSs) for global markets.

Kalmar has decided to invest in a new jetty to increase RCI’s import and export capacity with shorter shipping time, higher efficiency, and lower logistics costs. In addition, the new jetty will enable fully erect STS crane deliveries from RCI, which supports Kalmar’s STS business growth in the Asia-Pacific region.

The new jetty will be 371 meters in length and 12 meters in depth. It will have two berths of 50,000 tons and 5,000 tons capacity, respectively. The construction of Phase 1 is expected to be completed by the end of 2016.
