AMP Port of LA: Cavotec Wins Contract

Press Release
Wednesday, December 12, 2012

Cavotec wins Alternative Maritime Power (SMP) shore power equipment orders at Port of Los Angeles (POLA).

Cavotec AMP systems enable vessels to switch off their engines while docked and to connect to shore side electricity. Services such as power supply for reefer containers, lighting, heating, food preparation and cargo handling are then run directly from the port.

Cavotec will supply a large number of "Easy Lift" Access Covers and Shore Power Outlet Connection boxes for four separate container terminals at the Port. These orders include equipment for POLA berths 228, 401-406, 100-102, 121-128 and 212-216.

Cavotec's innovative "Easy Lift" Access Covers are safer for personnel to operate than many existing alternatives. An example of the cross-implementation of technology between Cavotec Market Units, these systems were first developed for use at airports and other aviation related applications. The units avoid operator stress and injury by reducing lift weights to a minimum. They are built into the quayside to enable vessels to connect to grid-generated electrical power quickly and easily.

"These orders are the latest in a collaboration with local partners and POLA that spans many years, and underlines Cavotec's role as an established supplier of shore power equipment in the US and globally," says Rob Thompson, West Coast Manager Cavotec USA Inc.

"These, and other shore power projects on which we are currently working, are a reminder of the growing trend, especially in the US and Europe, towards tighter legislation regulating emissions at ports. We continue to work closely with our partners to ensure that ports meet their environmental targets," Thompson adds.
