Shore power could reduce CO2 emissions by as much as 12.5 million tonnes at ports in Norway every year.
Cavotec has been awarded multiple orders for its systems for marine propulsion, shore power supply and crane electrification systems, worth a combined value of €10m.
Cavotec has announced that it has won a second order for its combined MoorMaster and battery charging system for a hybrid passenger ferry application in Finland.
Engineering giant, Cavotec, and energy technology company, ABB, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to jointly offer worldwide shore-to-ship power solutions.
DP World’s Jebel Ali facility has turned to Cavotec for the electrification of eight of its rubber-tyred gantry cranes.
Cavotec has won an order for automated mooring technology for Fortescue Metals Group for use at Port Hedland in Western Australia.
Plans to raise significant capital have been put on hold by Cavotec partially due to the NASDAQ OMX Stockholm-listing firm having a “very strong balance sheet” and recently signing a €80m ($110m) Credit Facility agreement.
Fender failure can be avoided with shrewd purchasing and better sector regulation. Dave and Iain MacIntyre report
DP World has returned to cable reel specialist Cavotec to equip its new container terminal at Jebel Ali Port.
Port Hedland is set to gain more Cavotec MSL technology next year, for iron ore shiploaders.
Cavotec has won an order to supply advanced cable reel, control and steel chain technologies to the ThyssenKrupp group for installation on iron ore ship-loaders at Port Hedland in Western Australia. The equipment is set for 2010 delivery to China for installation on the ship-loaders.
South Jersey's new Port Beckett Terminal at the US Port of Camden is investing in cathodic protection for its electrical conduits.
Two special versions of the MoorMaster suction anchoring system have been designed by Cavotec, one that has to deal with a massive 14 metre drop on an inland waterway, and another which deals with repetitive flooding.
Viewed by many on the US west coast as the driver in greener solutions for powering ships in dock, Cavotec has developed three different types of its branded Alternative Maritime Supply (AMP) units. Ship-based systems, semi-fixed systems and shore-based systems offer a supply of electrical power to docked vessels, obviating the need for a ship to use onboard resources during cargo operations.
Patrick Rosenwald, technical director of Cavotec Specimas, believes that the benefits of the MoorMaster automated mooring system are best illustrated by the results of testing done at the Port of Salalah in Oman in the summer of 2005.
Manufacturers of auto-mooring equipment for ports and harbours see only benefits for users,as David Foxwell explains
Mooring ships can be dangerous. Every year thousands of terminal and ship staff are injured in mooring line accidents, and in some cases, the accidents can be fatal. David Foxwell reports on the risks and how to mitigate them.
Cavotec's busy order book includes 30 power reels for Kone KCI RMGs at APM Terminals in Virginia; 20 power and control reels for stacker-reclaimers at Tianjin for China Engineering; 12 power reels for ZPMC STS cranes?the list goes on.
The cooperation agreement between the Mooring Systems of New Zealand and Cavotec Tech has been sealed with a license agreement.
Supplying shore-side electricity to ships at berth - or " cold ironing" - is cost effective for certain types of vessels that call regularly in Long Beach, that use a lot of power, and that spend a lot of time in port, according to a study commissioned by the port.
