Cavotec wins major cable reel order for Sri Lanka container port.

Cavotec has won a substantial order for power and spreader cable reels for ship-to shore (STS) container cranes from the world’s largest port equipment manufacturer ZPMC.

This project will see Cavotec electrical power and spreader cable reels fitted to 12 STS cranes for the China Merchant container terminal in the Port of Colombo, Sri Lanka.

The cranes form an important element of the Colombo South Harbour Development Project, a $500-million initiative that is set to considerably enhance the capacity of Sri Lanka's main port.

According to a report by the Xinhua news agency, the programme is the largest foreign direct investment project in Sri Lanka to date.

The first 600m quay of the container terminal is scheduled to become operational in 2014, while the remaining two stages of the programme are to be completed in 2016.

“This project reinforces our position as a trusted supplier to leading OEMs such as ZPMC. The considerable size of this order is also strongly positive for Cavotec,” says Gustavo Miller, Managing Director of Cavotec Shanghai.

Cavotec products include automated mooring systems, shore power technologies, Panzerbelt cable protection systems, crane controllers, marine propulsion slip rings, power chains and connectors, radio remote controls, motorised cable reels and steel chains.
