Bromma is to supply APM Terminals 34 Marathon YSX45E electric spreaders for the new automated container terminal under development on the Elizabeth River in Portsmouth, Va.

Bromma has also received an order from APM Terminals to supply seven Marathon yard twin-lifts to Los Angeles and further orders for Houston and Savannah.

Bromma claims its Marathon spreaders - especially the all-electrics - are out of service less. Also with yard congestion an increasing problem in the US, "you can't twin-pick containers from shipto-shore with BROMMA spreaders, and then have those containers back-up in the yard.

So more and more customers are going with the higher reliability of the Marathon spreaders because they are excellent at keeping the container transportation chain moving smoothly forward on the yard side, " says the company.

Modern Terminals, Hong Kong, has also ordered 25 separating twin-lift Marathon spreaders.

According to Bromma terminal revenue production can be significantly influenced by the type of spreader selected. For example, separating twin-lift [two 20' container] spreaders can, on average, load or unload a container vessel in 24 fewer moves. This is because twin-lift spreaders are able to better adjust to the various container locations and container sizes on a typical vessel. Terminal income per move varies around the world, but assuming income of US$100-150 per move, this creates a financial advantage (for a separating twin-lift spreader over a standard twin-lift spreader) of US$2,400-3,600 per vessel loading/unloading.
