Kalmar Hybrid Straddle Carriers to Help Med Europe Terminal Improve Environmental Performance


Kalmar, part of Cargotec, has signed an agreement with Med Europe Terminal to supply 6 Kalmar hybrid straddle carriers. The order was booked in Cargotec's Q1 2024 order intake. The machines are scheduled to be delivered during Q4 of 2024.

The terminal, which is located in the Port of Marseille on France’s south coast, already operates a fleet of Kalmar diesel-electric straddle carriers. The new hybrid straddle carriers are part of a fleet renewal programme aimed at improving the terminal’s environmental performance.

“We are constantly striving to improve our environmental performance, and Kalmar’s proven hybrid solution will help us take big steps forward in this area. We are looking forward to welcoming the new hybrid straddle carriers to our fleet at the end of the year and to continuing our long-standing partnership with Kalmar,” said Sylvain Pelligrini, Technical, Procurement, IT & Claims director, Med Europe Terminal.
