With a new port equipment order, we will supply high-voltage cable reel units and associated control reels to Chinese engineering group Dalian Huarui Heavy Industry, as part of an extension project at the Caofeidian Island Coal Terminal, located on China’s east coast.
We will manufacture seven high-voltage (HV) cable reels and seven control cable reels for use on six reclaimers with an operational capacity of 6,500 tonnes per hour, and one stacker with the same capacity.
Built entirely on reclaimed land, Caofeidian Island is located in China’s Hebei province, some 210 kilometres (130 miles) south east of Beijing. The State Development and Investment Corporation Caofeidian Port Co. Ltd. oversees and manages the extension project.
The coal terminal’s extension will see a total investment of RMB 5.43 billion (EUR 670 million, USD 800 million), and is set to increase handling capacity to around 100 million tonnes per year.
