Cavotec Wins Netherlands, Malaysia, Terminal Equipment Contracts

Press Release
Wednesday, August 01, 2012

Cavotec wins two large orders for electrical power and spreader cable reels for ship-to-shore (STS) container cranes.

These orders follow a recent announcement that the Group is to supply similar equipment to the Port of Colombo in Sri Lanka.

The first of the two new orders is from ZPMC, the world’s largest port equipment manufacturer, for power and spreader reels for 14 STS cranes for the Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG) terminal in The Netherlands.

RWG is a major port development that will offer a 1,150-metre deep-sea quay, and annual handling capacity of some 2.35 million TEUs. The terminal is scheduled to enter service in the second half of 2014.

RWG is a joint venture between four global container shipping lines – APL, MOL, HMM and CMA-CGM – and DP World, one of the largest container terminal operators in the world.

The second order is from Korean OEM Hyundai Samho for power and spreader reels for six STS container cranes at the Northport Terminal in Malaysia.

This project concludes a strong series of orders won by Cavotec in the past 18 months for ports in Malaysia, with the Group supplying cable reels and related equipment for more than 30 port cranes from OEMs including ZPMC, Hyundai, Mitsui and TCM.
