Cavotec is to supply its shore power equipment for customers in the Far East and Europe for a number of orders worth a total of €12m.

In the largest of these orders, the company will manufacture and supply more than 50 ship-based Alternative Maritiem Power (AMP) units for a major container shipping line.

"Cavotec now has more than 20 AMP container-housed units on order — almost certainly more than any other manufacturer of these type of shore power systems," said Luciano Corbetta, group market unit manager, Cavotec Ports and Maritime.

"The scope and geographical breadth of these orders underlines Cavotec's ability to manage complex projects and deliver innovative technologies to customers around the world," added Gustavo Miller, managing director, Cavotec Shanghai.

Cavotec will also supply a number of AMP cable management systems for four separate customers in China and South Korea. These units will be fitted to container vessels.

Another project in China will see the company deliver 16 AMP cable management units for installation on bulk carriers.

And for a customer in the UK, Cavotec will supply, install and commission ship-based AMP and cable management systems for two new-build 9,000 teu container vessels.

The company will also supply a further 10 container-housed AMP systems to be fitted to new-build container vessels for a customer in South Korea.

Other advanced technologies where the company is set to build on recent growth is its automated mooring system, MoorMaster – for which Cavotec recently announced a single order worth €10m – Human Operator Interface technologies and Electric Vehicles systems.
