Cavotec wins port equipment orders worth EUR 10M

Global engineering group Cavotec has been awarded significant orders for its innovative systems for marine propulsion, shore power supply, and crane electrification systems, with a combined value of EUR 10 million, highlighting the Group's pivotal position in the global Ports & Maritime segment.

"We are delighted to have received these orders, and we look forward to continuing to work closely with our customers on these and other projects going forward," says Ottonel Popesco, Cavotec CEO.

One of the largest of these orders — placed by 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.

"We continue to innovate and develop our technologies to ensure that we deliver the levels of operational performance and safety that our customers demand," explains Luciano Corbetta, Cavotec Group Market Unit Director, Ports & Maritime.

Since December — and included in the value quoted above — the Group has also received orders for applications in China, Finland, Hong Kong, Italy, and the US, for its innovative solutions such as marine systems for power, data and fluids transmission for ABB's Azipod marine propulsion, Alternative Maritime Power (AMP), Panzerbelt cable protection, and our Automatic Plug-in System (APS) that automates the connection of ships, cranes and other mobile equipment to electrical power.
