Order Intake Sales for Bromma grew by 13% in the third quarter of 2016 compared to the corresponding period in 2015.
“When looking at our order list over the last couple of months it is interesting to note that there is a significant share of separating twin spreaders. This used to be the case but after the financial downturn in 2008 the single lift spreaders for yard handling have been the norm” says Bromma Marketing Director Lars Meurling. Three larger orders for separating twin-lift yard spreaders can be found in the list of orders below.

Strong interest in automated twistlock handling solutions
Stevedores working under the crane mounting and removing twistlocks on/from containers has since long been identified as one of the remaining big security risks in a container terminal. Numerous attempts to develop technology to eliminate the need of personnel working in the vicinity of suspended loads have been made during the years but with no or limited success.
The Automatic Lashing Platform, ALP, is the first fully automatic system for coning and de-coning of twistlocks on the market.
The ALP, which can handle 20, 40, 45 and twin 20 foot containers, includes magazines in which the twistlocks are stored during discharge and re-used during loading of a vessel. The storage capacity in the system is designed to handle a full bay of containers on a 14 000 TEU vessel on deck or under deck. The system can be installed as a stand-alone unit on the quay or integrated into a platform in the crane.
As the first major installation is being installed and commissioned at VICT in Melbourne, the interest from the industry is high and concrete discussions with several terminal operators ongoing.
