Six Kalmar zero-emission Rubber-tired Gantry cranes (RTGs) will be supplied to South Florida Container Terminal (SFCT), LLC at PortMiami, enabling it to be the first container terminal in the US with 100% zero-emission RTG cranes.

Scheduled for delivery in 2020, the cranes will be equipped with a busbar energy system and operator assist features like auto steering and container stack profiling. They are also the first RTG cranes that will be installed in PortMiami.

Mark J. Baker, managing director of SFCT, stated: "We are excited about the opportunity to increase our capacity through this terminal redevelopment project. We will not only offer better service to our customers, but we will do it eco-efficiently with all-electric RTGs.”

Troy Thompson, vice president of sales at Kalmar Americas, commented: "We are very pleased to be the first to bring zero emission yard cranes to Miami. We have worked extensively with the team at SFCT and are certain that our partnership will only strengthen further as we move through this major redevelopment project together.”

The Kalmar Zero Emission RTGs will be delivered as part of an ongoing densification and terminal redevelopment project at SFCT.
