卡尔玛新闻摘要,2015年5月25日

卡尔玛赢得DP World安特卫普港Gateway NV项目中3座岸桥加高订单。此项订单已录入卡哥特科2015年第一季度订单,设备计划于2016年第一季度交付。

 

卡尔玛将会全权负责整套项目工程,包括计划、建造、执行加高工程和调试运行阶段。需加高的起重机自2005年开始运行,计划加高6米来迎接大型船只进港。此次加高项目完成后,预期将会显著增加集装箱移动速率。

 

DP World安特卫普港首席执行官Rob Harrison表示:“港口行业的挑战围绕着起升能力,且越来越重视起升能力。我们相信卡尔玛能用实用且有效的方式来满足我们的需求,成功交付项目,最终与我们一起共同满足船运公司客户的需求。”

 

Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has been awarded the contract to heighten three Kalmar ship-to-shore (STS) cranes operated by DP World Antwerp Gateway NV. The order was signed into Cargotec's first quarter of 2015 order intake, with the completion of the project scheduled to take place in the first quarter of 2016.

Kalmar will be responsible for the turnkey project, including planning and engineering, the execution of the heightening, and commissioning. The cranes, which have been operational since 2005, are to be heightened by six metres to accommodate larger vessels entering the port. This is in anticipation of significant growth in container movements.

Rob Harrison, CEO of DP World Antwerp Gateway: "'Today's challenges in the port industry evolve around capacity and more and more upon capability. We at DP World Antwerp Gateway are confident in Kalmar being able to deliver this project and allowing us to meet these needs in a practical and effective manner. Ultimately collectively serving the demands of our shipping line customers."

Jelle van der Waal, Director Crane Upgrades in Kalmar EMEA North said, "Quality and operational efficiency are high on our agenda. With professional planning and execution of an upgrade project, disruption on the terminal's operational efficiency during the project can be minimised." He continues: "DP World is naturally a very important and long-standing customer to Kalmar. They are a progressive, forward-thinking organisation and totally focused on improving the efficiency of their container handling operations. I am delighted to work with them again."

The highly specialist operation will be achieved by inserting leg extensions underneath the portal beams in the existing flange junctions. The project will also include the installation of consequential structural reinforcements in crane travel and trolley travel direction. The heightening of the crane structure is achieved by means of jacking towers and hydraulic jacks, including all bracings for horizontal forces to ensure optimum safety during the process.
