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.
