CARGOTEC has received a large order to supply 22 Kalmar straddle carriers to Australia's largest container handling operator Patrick container terminals for an undisclosed amount.

Twelve straddle carriers will be delivered to Patrick's East Swanson Dock in Melbourne between July and December 2012 and a further 10 to Patrick's Port Botany Terminal in Sydney between May and September 2012.

Cargotec said in a statement posted on its website that its Australian team will provide maintenance support to the equipment with spare parts supplied direct from its regional parts warehouse in Melbourne.

This latest order of 50-tonne capacity ESC 350W straddle carrier models continues a longstanding partnership between the two companies. The equipment provider said its team in Australia has provided over 120 Kalmar straddle carriers to Patrick container terminals over a period of 28 years. In total there are currently 108 units in operation across Patrick's sites in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, which combined, handle 3.5 million TEU per year.

Systems based on Kalmar straddle carriers such as the ESC 350W are suitable for medium-size terminals handling between 100,000 and 4,000,000 TEU. Kalmar straddle carrier's 7+ generation models combine high performance and productivity with low maintenance and operating costs.

Designed with operators in mind, they deliver environmental benefits, which can be further enhanced with hybrid operation and can provide users with automation options.
