MAFI supplies MT45s for SECU-Boxes

MT45: five for Gothenburg MT45: five for Gothenburg

The port of Gothenburg has placed an order with MAFI for five MT45 tractors for handling SECU-Boxes (Stora Enso Cargo Unit) with a load of around 95 tons. As the SECU-Boxes are 3.60 metres wide, MAFI will supply an offset cabin to allow the drivers visibility when pushing the unit.

The new spreader damping ('anti-sway') system consists of two backwards mounted damping cylinders. It performs the multiple tasks of achieving 'controlled sway' of the container spreader under highly variable dynamic load conditions giving the same amount of 'controlled sway' of the spreader when the machine is without container, lifting an empty container or when carrying a laden container under the spreader.

An advantage will be the size of the cabin as Gothenburg has to install internal equipment such as monitors, communication radios, door openers, etc. The cabin itself is certified to fulfil ROPS (Roll Over Protection Systems) according to the latest safety standards. The swivel seat console will be of special design to meet drivers' demands.

And the 5th wheel coupling type Eurohitch is fitted with a 3.5" king pin in order to couple the elevating trailer.
