Cavotec to launch new corporate film packed with footage of our innovative systems in October #cavotec #cavotecfilm

Our new film, packed with motorised cable reels, aircraft ground support systems and automated mooring units, was shot at eight locations in Europe, Australia and the US during a two-week whirlwind tour made in May and June this year.

The itinerary included Frankfurt Airport, the Danish port of Saelvig, Port Hedland, Western Australia, the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of OaklandLos Vegas’ McCarran International Airport, the Port of Virginia and finally Maher Terminals in Newark, NJ.

We’ll be publishing the final version of the film during October, with a teaser going live on Monday, October 10.


Cavotec film: mission accomplished

Cavotec film trip is complete

Job done: Mårten Ivert Michael Scheepers Oskar Willers complete shooting at Maher Terminals in Newark NJ

After a whirlwind two-week world tour that encompassed four countries and eight shoots, the Cavotec film crew’s mission to gather footage for a new Cavotec corporate film is complete.

Filming got underway at Frankfurt Airport where we shot our ground support systems that service aircraft there. Our next stop was the Danish port of Saelvig to film our MoorMaster™ automated mooring units.

The team then headed Down Under to shoot the newest MoorMaster application at Port Hedland, Western Australia. The US West Coast was next up, where we filmed shore-to-ship power systems at the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Oakland.

We then made a brief stop at Los Vegas’ McCarran International Airport to get some additional ground support equipment footage.

The final leg of the tour took us to APMT at the Port of Virginia to shoot spreader reels, before our final shoot at Maher Terminals in Newark, NJ, where we got some excellent shots of Panzerbelt cable protection systems and vast cable reels on STS cranes.

The film crew was myself, cameraman Mårten Ivert and photographer Oskar Willers. We used Canon 5D and 7D cameras, 16-35mm, 24-70mm, 70-200mm L-series zooms and a 11-24mm Tokina lens. The tripods were Sachtler and Gitzo.

Our grateful thanks to everyone who made the trip go so smoothly.

We’ll be publishing selected shots from the tour in the weeks ahead. The final version of the film will be ready after the summer.

After weeks of careful planning, we have now started shooting our brand new company film that will provide a flavour of the technological diversity and geographical variety of our customer base.

The new film will present the Cavotec Group to customers, partners and the general public, and will replace the existing version that has served us so well in recent years.

Our first stop on the filming trip was Frankfurt Airport, where we gathered footage of our ground support equipment that serves a wide range of aircraft including the Airbus A380. After filming MoorMaster™ automated mooring units in Denmark operating on a fast ferry route, the team are headed Down Under to shoot the newest MoorMaster™ application at Port Hedland.

The final leg of the trip will take the team to the US. Here they will film several applications at ports and airports across the country, including cable reels on ship-to-shore cranes at the Port of Virginia, Alternative Maritime Power (AMP) systems at the Port of Los Angeles and more ground support equipment at Los Angeles International Airport.

We’ll be posting images, updates and anecdotes from the road on our Facebook page, with alerts on Twitter that you can find with #Cavotecfilm.
