Low-emission tractors for Wilmington
GT USA Wilmington has ordered 16 low-emission terminal tractors from Terberg Tractors Americas to use at the Port of Wilmington, Delaware, US.
In addition to incorporating energy efficient LED lighting and the most recent Tier 4F fuel-efficient low-emissions Cummins engine, which is compliant with prevailing Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) legislation, the machines also include a new design transmission which is expected to further contribute to fuel reduction by up to 17%.
“We are eager to take delivery of these tractors in the coming months to enhance and support our transformation at the Port of Wilmington, said Eric Casey, CEO of GT USA Wilmington, the US arm of Gulftainer.
”We will continue to enhance operations through the introduction of this and other cargo handling equipment throughout 2019 as part of the $100 million-plus modernization and improvement program at the port,” he added.
The Terberg Tractors have a superior Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) of 155,000 lbs and incorporate a hydraulically operated 5th wheel of 75,000 lbs lifting capacity. Enhanced safety and protection features include a speed limiter, automatic engine protection in the event of high temperature or low oil pressure, and a 90db automatic reversing alarm.
Delivery of the first three units is scheduled for mid-June, with subsequent deliveries scheduled for August and October.
In 2018, GT USA was granted exclusive rights to operate and develop the Port of Wilmington for 50 years.
