Bromma has been selected to deliver the spreaders for the automatic stacking cranes to be commissioned at Khalifa Port Container Terminal in Abu Dhabi later this year. A total of 60 all-electric, YSX45E single-lift spreaders will be delivered for the expansion of the existing terminal.

“I am extremely proud to get this order as it is a repeat order after the first phase. It proves that our equipment is performing well and the customer is happy” says Vikram Raman, VP Sales & Service EMEA. “We know we have excellent products well suited for operations in automated environments but an equally important part is the service provided by the local Bromma team”, he continues.

Bromma Marketing Director Lars Meurling comments: “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”.

All-electric spreaders dominate the yard

More than 90% of the spreaders for RTG, RMG and ASC operation from Bromma today are all-electric.

Bromma all-electric spreaders are being specified by customers due to their inherent reliability, as well as their environmental and economic benefits. Due to fewer service points, lighter weight, and the absence of any hydraulics, Bromma all-electric spreaders have higher availability, simplified maintenance requirements, require less power, produce fewer emissions, and offer tough durability.

In related Bromma news, Vikram Raman, currently VP, Sales and Services for Bromma EMEA has been appointed VP, APAC. In his new role Mr Raman will lead the Bromma sales and services activities in Asia Pacific. He will be relocating to the Bromma office in Singapore later this summer but will start in his new role already now.

Lars Meurling has at the same time been appointed VP, EMEA and Marketing. In this role he will be leading the sales and services activities in Europe, Middle East and Africa. Meurling will also continue in his role as globally responsible for Marketing.

Both Vikram and Lars are already part of the Bromma Leadership Team and will continue to be so also in their new roles.

“I am very happy to announce this change in our leadership team. Vikram Raman has an ocean of experience from senior sales and services management positions, both from Bromma and from other multinational companies. He is also well known and respected in our APAC organization.”, says Bromma President Peter Cederholm.

“I am equally pleased that Lars Meurling will take over when Vikram leaves. Lars also has a multitude of experience and very strong market and industry knowledge from different positions including Sales leadership and Marketing & Communications in Bromma as well as other international companies.”, he continues.
