Cavotec has announced that it will supply crane specialist Konecranes with “advanced cable reel technologies” for two of its electrically powered BOXHUNTER Rubber Tyred Gantry (RTG) cranes, destined for Terport’s Villeta container terminal in Paraguay.
Cavotec has manufactured cable reels for ship-to-shore container cranes that boast the highest lifting distance of any STS cranes anywhere in the world today
As the number of large and super-large container vessels in service grows, port authorities are scrambling to service these vast ships in ways that are safer and more profitable.
Global engineering group Cavotec recently completed a series of at sea demonstrations (ASDs) of the innovative US Navy Advanced Mooring System (AMS) for novel ship-to-ship mooring applications. Following successful Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) at Cavotec USA in North Carolina, and System Integration Testing (SIT) at project partner Oceaneering’s facility in Maryland, the ASDs were conducted at US Naval Base Coronado in California
