Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has secured two orders from long-term customer Kenya Port Authority (KPA) for its Mombasa Container Terminal. The first order, for three forklift trucks, was booked in Cargotec’s Q2 order intake; the second order, for eight reachstackers, was booked in Cargotec’s Q3 order intake. All machines are scheduled for delivery in Q1 of 2022.

KPA manages and operates the Port of Mombasa and all scheduled seaports along Kenya’s coastline. The port is the gateway to eastern and central Africa and is one of the busiest on the east African coastline. KPA’s diverse equipment fleet includes Kalmar terminal tractors, forklift trucks, reachstackers and rubber-tyred gantry cranes. These new orders closely follow orders for four Kalmar Gloria reachstackers delivered in 2020 and a total of 50 Kalmar terminal tractors, delivered to KPA in 2019 and 2020.

The reachstacker order comprises four Kalmar Gloria reachstackers and four reachstackers for empty and semi-laden container handling, while the forklift truck order comprises two medium machines and one heavy machine.

Eng. Julius Tai, Head of Terminal Engineering, KPA: “We took delivery of our first Kalmar reachstacker in 2005, and it is still running flawlessly. Over the years Kalmar has always been willing to listen, adapt and provide us with solutions that meet our requirements without compromising on capacity. We are very much looking forward to welcoming these new machines to our fleet at the start of next year.”

Rob van Klingeren, Vice President, Kalmar India, Middle East and Africa: “KPA is a highly valued Kalmar customer in the region and we are very pleased to build on our excellent working relationship with them. I would also like to acknowledge the important role played by our local dealer Power Parts Kenya in securing these latest orders.”
