Kalmar and TransPower to Execute Supply Agreement and Showcase Electric Terminal Tractor at ACT Expo in Long Beach, CA.
April 27, 2017 – Ottawa, KS – Kalmar USA and TransPower have announced today they will enter into a 5-year supply agreement and showcase the first joint-effort zero emission, battery-electric version of Kalmar’s Ottawa T2 terminal tractor at the Advanced Clean Technology (ACT) Expo in Long Beach, CA on May 2, 2017. Kalmar, a global manufacturer of terminal tractors and other cargo handling equipment, and TransPower, an advanced clean energy technology company, have been collaborating since 2011 to develop and perfect advanced, zero-emission electric terminal tractors. The terminal tractor on display was completed as part of a glider program in which TransPower completed the build by installing their drive system at their Escondido, CA facility. Under Kalmar’s new supply agreement with TransPower, Kalmar will manufacture electric terminal tractors on its own assembly line in Ottawa, KS, using parts shipped to Kansas by TransPower. The first prototype units are scheduled to be produced in the Ottawa plant in the fourth quarter but no full production dates are available at this time.
