Cavotec continues to build its position as an important supplier of niche technologies to major Swedish industrial companies with several projects involving its radio remote control (RRC) systems in recent months.
“Cavotec has a long association with Swedish industrial groups; indeed, the Group was established in Sweden in the 1970s. These latest projects underscore our position as a trusted partner for OEMs such as ABB in Sweden and further afield,” says Cavotec Sweden Managing Director, Erik Chilò.
In one of the most recent orders for the Group in Sweden, Cavotec has supplied an advanced MC-3-5 RRC terminal to Swedish automation specialist Kelmo. The company is carrying out upgrading work on high voltage cable plant in Karlskrona, southern Sweden, on behalf of ABB.
ABB has also purchased a number of Cavotec Micro-control systems that will be used to control a cable production application. Factories in Karlskrona and in Luleå, in the north of the country, use Cavotec systems to control cable storage facilities and operate the critical extruder process when manufacturing cables.
Operators use the MC-3-5 units to control large machines that coil underwater sea cable into storage facilities before they are loaded on to ships or barges. ABB also uses a large number of Cavotec electrical plugs and cable reels for applications in ports and terminals, and in metallurgy industry.
Cavotec is also currently supporting the SEK 17-billion Stockholm City Line project in the Swedish capital. Stockholm City Line is a major infrastructure programme involving the construction of a six kilometre-long train line under the city. Cavotec has supplied cable management systems, RRCs and electrical connectors to leading contractors working on the project such as Bilfinger Berger, NCC, Zublin and PEAB.
