“We are delighted to continue to supply leading ZPMC and our valued customer HMM with this highly reliable and productive container handling tool,” said Lars Fredin, vice-president of sales and marketing at Bromma Group. “We have had a long, successful history of supplying spreaders for use in Pusan, and we look forward to a strong, continuing relationship with ZPMC and HMM for many years to come.”
The Bromma STS45 telescoping twin-lift spreader is Bromma’s largest-selling spreader model, with many hundreds sold each year. The high twin-lift productivity of the STS45, combined with the excellent operating flexibility it gives terminals – the ability to handle a wide variety of container configurations on container ships – has made the Bromma STS45 the industry’s spreader of choice for high-throughput container handling, according to the company.
As a complement to the hydraulic STS45, Bromma has also recently introduced an all-electric ship-to-shore separating twin-lift spreader, the STS45E. Benefits of the STS45E include lower weight, significant energy savings, reduced maintenance costs and lower noise. The new STS45E was first field tested in Europe in early 2007 at the Port of Felixstowe. In September it went in service at the Port of Laem Chabang in Thailand, in its first deployment in Asia.
