Bromma has won a major order of 91 spreaders from Konecranes for its Port of Virginia deliveries.
The all-electric YSX45E spreaders will be used in two different semi-automated yard projects with 63 spreaders used for the redevelopment of container handling operations at Norfolk International Terminals (NIT) and 28 for the expansion at Virginia International Gateway (VIG).
“This order is one of the largest in the company history”, said Chris Cassalia, VP Bromma Americas. “We have many years of successful partnership with the terminals as well as with the crane manufacturer. We have proven to be a reliable partner with reliable products which is exactly what is needed in an automated environment.”
Lars Meurling, marketing director, Bromma, added: “The YSX40/45E is by far the most used spreader in automated terminals in the world today. The robust design combined with specific features required in an automated environment makes these spreaders the best choice for automatic stacking cranes.”
VIG was commissioned in 2007 and was the first automated terminal in North America and Bromma spreaders have been used from the start on all ASCs.
More than 90% of spreaders for RTG, RMG and ASC operations today are all electric Bromma Greenline spreaders.
Bromma said its all-electric spreaders are being specified by customers due to their inherent reliability, as well as their environmental and economic benefits. They have high availability, simplified maintenance requirements, require less power, produce fewer emissions and offer tough durability.
