The 45t of lifting capacity machinery, due for delivery in early Q4 2022, will feature a 326 kWh lithium-ion battery pack covered by a five-year warranty and an expected first life of 10-12 years.
According to the manufacturer, the battery capacity is sufficient to cover a complete working shift.
The charging will be performed during scheduled breaks using combined charging system (CCS) chargers with a maximum capacity of 350 kW, making it the world's first reachstacker to implement this charging standard.
The purchase comes together with five-year-long Kalmar Complete Care that will provide Westport with preventive and corrective maintenance services.
"The new Kalmar Electric Reachstacker will play a key role in helping us to achieve our target of zero emissions by 2030. The fact that we are the first in the world to use a new and innovative technology from Kalmar speaks volumes about our ambition to be at the forefront of the green shift. Our investments in electrification, hybrid solutions and biodiesel will enable us to reduce our emissions by 56% in 2022," Kurt A. Ommundsen, CEO, Westport, highlighted.
