Dana has announced the delivery of 1,000 Spicer HVT2 transmissions for Kalmar Eco Reachstackers used in port operations around the world.

Kalmar has configured the transmission in its lineup of high-efficiency reachstackers since 2015. Testing in real-world conditions has demonstrated as much as a 40% reduction in fuel consumption as well as up to a 10% improvement in productivity when compared with equipment using conventional transmissions.

The energy transition is a journey, but OEMs and equipment buyers are collaborating with Dana to integrate solutions that assist in reducing their carbon intensity today,” said Jeroen Decleer, President, Off-Highway Drive and Motion Systems for Dana Incorporated. “Our collaboration with Kalmar demonstrates how the Spicer HVT2 contributed to reduced fuel consumption and the associated greenhouse gas emissions in a plug-and-play solution that fits within current vehicle design envelopes.”

Spicer HVTs play an integral role in supporting Kalmar reachstackers at major ports around the world, including Australia, Belgium, China, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Italy, the Netherlands, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Thailand, Turkey, and the United States.

Spicer HVTs significantly reduce fuel consumption by decreasing engine speeds throughout the duty cycle and at idle when speeds can drop to as low as 600 rpm. Application analysis demonstrates the possibility of further savings without compromising performance through engine downsizing.

The Spicer HVT2 handles up to 235 kW (315 HP) of input power for reachstackers, empty container handlers, and other port material-handling applications. Dana also offers the Spicer HVT1, engineered for 80 to 115 kW (110 to 155 HP) of power input for mid-sized applications such as agriculture and construction telehandlers.
