Global engineering group Cavotec has been awarded orders reaching US$10.6 million for its marine propulsion, shore power supply, and crane electrification systems, highlighting the Group's pivotal position in the global Ports & Maritime segment.
The largest of these orders, from an undisclosed a major crane manufacturer, is for powering and controlling advanced rail-mounted gantry cranes (RMGC) and Automatic Stacking Cranes (ASC) with motorised cable reels at two container terminals.
This is one of the most significant developments in ASC technology, making these gantry cranes the fastest units to be delivered to date.
The orders include applications in China, Finland, Hong Kong, Italy, and the US, covering marine systems for power, data and fluids transmission for ABB's Azipod marine propulsion, Alternative Maritime Power (AMP), Panzerbelt cable protection, and Cavotec’s Automatic Plug-in System (APS) that automates the connection of ships, cranes and other mobile equipment to electrical power.
Luciano Corbetta, Cavotec Group Market Unit Director, Ports & Maritime, said: “We continue to innovate and develop our technologies to ensure that we deliver the levels of operational performance and safety that our customers demand.”
