Cavotec wins crane electrification orders



Cavotec has won orders for its motorised cable reel electrification systems for container cranes at major ports in China and the US from crane manufacturer ZPMC.

The total value of the two orders amounts to more than EUR 1.3M and the company said its orders highlight how Cavotec manufactures “mission-critical systems” that improve safety, maximize efficiency, and minimize environmental impact.

For the first order, Cavotec will supply motorised cable reel systems for electrification of rail-mounted gantry cranes for a container yard at the Port of Taicang in China.

The second order is a repeat order for motorised cable reel systems for gantry and spreader systems on ship-to-shore container cranes at the Port of Los Angeles.

Cavotec said its motorised cable reel systems reduce the environmental impact of container handling while optimising efficiency.
