Cavotec secures €11.5m port orders

Cavotec has won orders from ports in Australia, Indonesia, Oman, Portugal and Turkey, along with two shipping lines, with a combined value of more than €11.5m (US$13.6m).

The largest single project is for its MoorMaster™ automated mooring system, for installation at a container berth at the Port of Salalah in Oman, where a number of units have been in service for several years.

The company has also won several orders for its Automatic Plug-in System (APS), automated electrical power and communication connection of cranes, ships and other mobile equipment to the power grid, thereby expanding the use of mobile electrical equipment.

At DP World’s major development at the Port of Yarimca in Turkey, it is to supply APS yard equipment that will provide electrical power and communication connection for electric rubber tyred gantry (ERTG) cranes.  In a related project at the same port, the company has also won an order from Konecranes’ for APS crane equipment and reeling systems to be installed on 18 ERTG; a similar order will see the supply of APS on 11 ERTGs for one of the largest container terminals in Portugal.

“These orders demonstrate how our APS is rapidly gaining traction,” said Luciano Corbetta, group market unit manager, ports & maritime.

The company is also supplying a total of 22 cable reeling systems for automated stacking cranes (ASC) at the new container terminal in Surabaya, Indonesia and in Melbourne, Australia.

It has also won an order to install its Alternative Maritime Power (AMP) reel systems on nine new container ships to be built in South Korea for a major unnamed European shipping line.  A similar order for AMP equipment for five container vessels has been received for a Chinese container line.
