Kalmar, part of Cargotec, introduces a range of new sustainability options for its eco-efficient electric reachstacker at the TOC Europe conference in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
More specifically, Kalmar customers have the option of having their electric reachstacker constructed with 47% SSAB Zero™ steel, which is made from recycled steel and produced using fossil-free electricity and biogas.
Kalmar and SSAB announced their partnership and are able to bring SSAB Zero to the cargo and load-handling industry in May 2023.
At the same time customers have also the option to replace standard oil with Panolin biodegradable hydraulic oil and extend tire lifetime through eco driver training and a tire pressure monitoring system, according to the announcement.
Moreover, Kalmar said it is going to launch a new emission-reducing counterweight made from unprocessed naturally heavy material to replace the standard cast-iron counterweight.
In particular, the Kalmar electric reachstacker, launched in December 2021, offers lifting capacities of up to 45 tonnes, improving the eco-efficiency of cargo-handling operations. Also, the machine is available with a range of modular battery options and charging solutions, according to the manufacturer.
