Cavotec has provided cable reels for ship-to-shore (STS) cranes which have the highest lifting distance of any such cranes in the world.
The cable reels provide electrical power for the ZPMC STS cranes at the Port of Tanjung Pelepas in Malaysia.
As well as having the world’s highest lifting distance, these cranes are the second tallest in the world after DP World’s ZPMC STS cranes in Dubai.
For the Tanjung Pelepas cranes, Cavotec has supplied eight electrical power reels with drums measuring 6.4m, and eight spreader reels with a maximum lifting distance of 73.5 m.
Recently, Cavotec built one of the world’s largest mono-spiral motorised cable reels, with a drum diameter of 9.2m, for ZPMC for several STS cranes installed in ports in Asia and Europe.
