Global engineering group Cavotec has been awarded significant orders for its marine propulsion systems, shore power supply and crane electrification systems, worth a combined value of €10 million.

"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," said Ottonel Popesco, CEO, Cavotec.

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 Cavotec 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," explained Luciano Corbetta, Cavotec Group Market Unit Director, Ports & Maritime.

Since December 2016, the group has also received orders for applications in China, Finland, Hong Kong, Italy, and the US.

Orders include marine power systems, data and fluids transmission for ABB's Azipod marine propulsion, Alternative Maritime Power (AMP), Panzerbelt cable protection and Cavotec’s  Automatic Plug-in System (APS) that automates the connection of ships, cranes and other mobile equipment to electrical power.
