Cavotec has won several orders for its Automatic Plug-In System (APS) including a large order for DP World’s major development at the Port of Yamrica in Turkey.

The APS automates electrical power and communications of mobile port equipment to the power grid and helps to expand the use of mobile electrical equipment helping to deliver cost savings, environmental benefits by lowering emissions and improving safety standards.

Luciano Corbetta, group market unit manager, ports & maritime, Cavotec, said: “These orders demonstrate how Cavotec APS is rapidly gaining traction in the market and indicates the value of our continued focus on innovation.”

In Yamrica, Cavotec is supplying equipment that will provide electrical power and communications for electric rubber-tyred gantry cranes (eRTGs). At the same time it has won an order from port equipment manufacturer, Konecranes, for APS crane equipment and reeling systems that will be installed on eight eRTGs.

The engineering giant has also managed to clinch a deal with one of the largest container terminals in Portugal to supply APS for another 11 eRTGS.

Elsewhere Cavotec has won a large order to supply its Alternative Maritime Power (AMP) reel systems that will be installed onboard nine new container ships to be built in South Korea. It has also had a similar order for installation onboard five container vessels for a Chinese shipping line.

Cavotec’s AMP systems reduce vessel emissions in port helping to improve air quality in surrounding communities.
