Cavotec in Hedland deal

Cavotec MSL has had further success at Port Hedland in Western Australia where it won the largest ever order for its MoorMaster automated mooring technology in April.

The latest order is for equipment for four new shiploaders Port Hedland has ordered from ThyssenKrupp. Cavotec is supplying cable reels, Brieda operator cabins and console technologies, radio remote control units and steel drag chains.

One system of cable reels will manage high voltage cable with fibre optics for communications, while another handles hose reels carrying water for the dust suppression system.

The Cavotec Micro-Control radio remote control systems are Fieldbus enabled, which means they can takeover the equipment when auxiliary remote control is required for purposes such as maintenance.

Cavotec’s range includes Brevetti cable chains and it will supply steel slew chains for the shiploaders.

According to Cavotec the slewing chains do not need to be the “traditional circular system” as the shiploaders have a limited slew rotation and Brevetti will supply a steel drag chain which will be installed on its side.

Cavotec will deliver all the components to China, where ThyssenKrupp is fabricating the machines, in 2010.
