Cavotec continues winning shore power orders, highlighting success of new

During 1H16 and the first weeks of 3Q16, leading engineering group Cavotec has
won orders for its innovative shore power systems with a total value of
approximately EUR 11.5 million, underlining the Group’s central position in
this growing segment, and the ports sector as a whole. 

“The scope and diversity of these orders illustrate Cavotec’s established role
as a key supplier of innovative shore power technologies in this expanding
global market,” says Cavotec CEO Ottonel Popesco. 

Cavotec’s shore power – Alternative Maritime Power (AMP) – cable management
systems connect ships to shore side electrical power. This enables ships’
diesel generators to be switched off, thereby reducing noise and harmful
emissions of nitrogen oxides, sulphur oxides, and particulate matter. 

Growing concern over emissions in port areas has seen increasingly concerted
regulatory steps taken to reduce emissions from ships in port. 

In the first two quarters of 2016, Cavotec secured AMP orders from customers
worldwide for a diverse range of applications, including container vessels of
up to 20,000 TEUs, 400,000 DWT bulk carriers, cruise ships, passenger ferries,
offshore supply vessels, a special purpose vessel, a major naval application in
the UK, and a large container terminal in Canada. 

These orders also include a major bulk-handling project involving 30 Very Large
Ore Carriers (VLOC), owned by three separate owners, all chartered to a leading
mining group. These VLOC will call at seven major bulk terminals in China, and
at ports in Brazil. 

This high-profile project is set to highlight Cavotec’s unrivalled capacity for
developing shore power systems for demanding bulk applications – a segment that
has, to date, tended to lag behind the container, cruise, and passenger ferry
sectors with the introduction of shore power. 

Continuing the positive trend of the first half of the year, the third quarter
has also started strongly for Cavotec’s AMP technologies, with an order for 16
AMP systems for six new-build 13,500 TEU container vessels. 

The value of this project is included in the EUR 11.5 million stated above.

The range of applications included in these orders is matched by the
technological variety of the systems Cavotec will supply: the equipment for
these projects ranges from junction boxes, AMP Vault, AMP Reel systems, an
AMPMobile unit, ship-based AMPTainers, an AMPTelescopic crane system, and
storage systems. 

These orders are in addition to the AMP, MoorMaster™ automated mooring, and
Automatic Plug-in System project Cavotec announced in June for a passenger
ferry application in Finland.
