The intrepid Cavotec film crew, after a day's filming at Port Hedland
In the latest leg of our round the world film trip, we successfully filmed MoorMaster™ automated mooring units in action at Port Hedland, Western Australia.
Following a pre-dawn start, the team – Oscar Willers, Michael Scheepers, Mårten Ivert pictured above – got into position at the port’s Utah Point iron ore berth to film the 14 MoorMaster™ MM200B units that have been in service since last year. All went smoothly and we were able to shoot some excellent material for our new company film. Our thanks to the Port Hedland Port Authority for making all this possible.
With passenger numbers at the world’s airports projected to expand from their current annual number of around 1.5 billion to some five billion in the next 30 to 40 years, airports will come under increasing pressure to make better use of existing infrastructure.
In an interview prior to a panel discussion on these issues at the recent Airport Infra Expo held in Brazil, Gary Matthews, managing director of Cavotec UK, outlines the importance of handling aircraft efficiently and sustainably to realise financial and environmental benefits.
