Bromma has won a major order of 91 spreaders from Konecranes for their Port of Virginia deliveries. The all-electric YSX45E spreaders will be used in two different semi-automated yard projects.63 spreaders will be used for the redevelopment of container handling operations at Norfolk International Terminals (NIT) and 28 for the expansion at Virginia International Gateway (VIG). These are The Port of Virginia's primary container handling terminals.
“This order is one of the largest in the company history”, says Chris Cassalia, VP Bromma Americas. “We have many years of successful partnership with the terminals as well as with the crane manufacturer. We have proven to be a reliable partner with reliable products which is exactly what is needed in an automated environment”, he continues.
Bromma Marketing Director Lars Meurling comments: “The YSX40/45E is by far the most used spreader in automated terminals in the world today. The robust design combined with specific features required in an automated environment makes these spreaders the best choice for automatic stacking cranes”. VIG - commissioned in 2007 - was the first automated terminal in North America and Bromma spreaders have been used from the start on all ASCs.
Port of Virginia is today the fifth largest container port in US with a throughput of 2,7 MTEU in 2016.
All-electric spreaders dominate the yard
More than 90% of the spreaders for RTG, RMG and ASC operation from Bromma today are all-electric GreenlineTM spreaders.
Bromma all-electric spreaders are being specified by customers due to their inherent reliability, as well as their environmental and economic benefits. Due to fewer service points, lighter weight, and the absence of any hydraulics, Bromma all-electric spreaders have higher availability, simplified maintenance requirements, require less power, produce fewer emissions, and offer tough durability.
Bromma is the world leader in crane spreaders. In more than 50 years of continuous operations, Bromma has delivered crane spreaders to 500 terminals in 90 nations on 6 continents, and Bromma spreaders are in service today at 99 out of the world’s largest 100 container ports. Bromma is the industry market leader in ship-to-shore spreaders, mobile harbor crane spreaders, and yard crane spreaders. A pioneer in the container handling industry, Bromma is focused on lifting the productivity of its customers through more reliable spreaders, and Bromma’s industry-leading all-electric Greenline™ spreaders and recent Green Zone™ port productivity applications such as Roadmap™, Fleet Doctor™ and Work Order™ are part of this continuing effort.
