DP World’s Caucedo orders new Kalmar equipment

DP World has signed a deal with Kalmar, part of Cargotec, for 12 Ottawa T2 terminal tractors and two empty container handlers to be deployed at the DP World Caucedo terminal in the Dominican Republic.

DP World Caucedo is one of the largest terminals in the Caribbean and the new equipment is scheduled for delivery 1Q of 2021. The terminal and free zone, is located in Punta Caucedo, 25 km from Santo Domingo, capital of the Dominican Republic.

The equipment fleet at Caucedo was expanded during 2020 with 38 Kalmar Ottawa T2 terminal tractors as part of an order from late 2019.

This latest batch of 12 will incorporate the same additional safety features including the Automatic Fire Extinguisher System, which can automatically detect and extinguish vehicle fires in seconds, thereby increasing the safety of personnel and equipment alike.

 “Our terminal tractors and empty container handlers have already proven their worth at Caucedo, so we are happy to continue to support the customer with new equipment to complement their new ship-to-shore cranes. Our team is there to help whenever the customer needs support,” said Suresh Ananthanarayan, sales director at Kalmar.
