Cavotec showcases at Dubai logistics expo
Dubai, December 10, 2013
Cavotec, a global engineering group and maritime solutions provider, is showcasing its innovative energy-efficient and cost-effective technology at an ongoing supply chain exhibition in Dubai.
The TOC Container Supply Chain Middle East, the global meeting place for ports, terminals, shipping lines, 3PLs & shippers, opened yesterday (December 9) at the Dubai International Convention Centre and will run until Thursday.
Cavotec will highlight its important ongoing projects in the region in order to pave the way for wider collaboration as well as further adoption of its innovations across the sector.
These contracts underline the importance of a number of Cavotec technologies, such as Alternative Maritime Power (AMP), cable reel electrical supply and the globally-renowned MoorMaster system, in delivering efficient, eco-friendly and profitable operations to port companies in the region and across the globe.
Juergen Strommer, managing director at Cavotec Middle East, said: “We look forward to bringing the Group’s inspired engineering concepts to the TOC Container Supply Chain Middle East. During the exhibition, we will not only allow visitors to learn more about how they can improve port operations, reduce carbon footprint and optimize profitability with our products, but also engage in dialogue with key industry players regarding the challenging situations that they face on a daily basis.
“This will allow us to develop relevant solutions to pressing problems at today’s high-traffic ports, especially in the GCC region which has always been a trade hub between the West and the East.”
In the UAE, Cavotec has been chosen by DP World for two projects in Terminals 1 and 3 at the port operator’s Jebel Ali Port.
At Terminal 1, DP World has successfully electrified eight rubber tyred gantry (RTG) cranes with the help of Cavotec’s cable reel electrical supply systems, effectively reducing monthly diesel consumption by 109,000 litres on average, saving on energy costs and reducing emissions by almost 2,000 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year, according to a statement by DP World.
At Terminal 3, Cavotec has won significant orders for motorised cable reel technologies for installation on ship-to-shore (STS) cranes and rail-mounted gantry (RMG) cranes. – TradeArabia News Service
