FELIXSTOWE WEIGHS IN WITH BROMMA
Bromma, the world leader in crane spreaders, has been selected as the supplier of spreader twistlock based weighing systems by Port of Felixstowe. This follows an earlier order of upgrades of 11 + 1 spreaders.
“We want to have a system that weighs the container as part of the normal operating cycle. We have tested the system and seen that it performs according to specifications as well as to expectations” says Stephen Abraham, Chief Operating Officer at the Port of Felixstowe. “We are delighted to receive the order from the Port of Felixstowe” says Lars Meurling, Marketing Director of Bromma. “We know the system performance including the fact that it performs well within the requirements established by the authorities in the UK. We are delighted to get this order from the Port of Felixstowe which emphasizes the strength in the solution to the SOLAS regulation requirements we offer” he continues.
There is an increasing interest for Container weight verification solutions that does not affect cycle times and the logistic flows in the terminal.
As the work by the IMO on verification of container weights prior to loading on to a ship is progressing, the interest for solutions that will not affect cycle times and will not influence the logistic flows in the terminal is increasing. Currently, expectations are that legislation will come into force in 2016.
Bromma's Weight Verification system with load sensors mounted on the spreader twistlocks offers such a solution and the interest for this technology is steadily increasing.
