We have won three orders for cable reel systems from industrial equipment manufacturer ZPMC for port operators DP World and Patrick Terminals that will power ship-to-shore cranes at applications in Australia, Brazil and the UK.
One of the orders is for cable reels for ship-to-shore and rail-mounted gantry cranes for the London Gateway terminal, a major new port development located on the north bank of the River Thames run by DP World.
We are also supplying medium voltage cable and spreader cable reels for six ship-to-shore cranes for another DP World project, this time in Brazil. This application is a new joint venture between DP World and several local partners.
Cavotec has also received an order from ZPMC for medium voltage cable reels and spreader cable reels for four ship-to-shore cranes for Patrick Terminals in Australia.
