STR40E/STR45E are all-electric telescoping twin-lift STS spreaders and can lift a wide combination of containers, thereby providing significant improvements in productivity.


Possible container combinations: 20´, 30´, 40´, (45´), 2×20´

STR40E/STR45E are good alternatives for the smaller and less busy terminals but also good backup spreaders if the usual spreader is taken out of operation.

The spreader is designed in accordance with EN13001. As all Bromma spreaders it is made from European high quality steel, which ensures a light and robust design. The spreader has a user friendly design and all components are easily accessible for inspection and maintenance. All-electric spreaders from Bromma reduce consumables, lessen CO2 emissions through lower crane power consumption, protect water through the elimination of oil leaks, enhance worker safety, and lower spreader noise. In addition they are strong and light, substantially lighter than the spreaders they replace.


These are all-electric spreaders and they will help ports make additional strides toward “greener” operations. As all Bromma all-electric spreaders they have clear operating advantages:

  • Light
  • Quiet
  • More energy efficient – as much as 85% lower spreader energy consumption
  • Fast, easy and less costly than many other spreaders to service
  • Low service materials cost (for oil and filters)
  • Reduced scheduled service time, thereby increased spreader uptime
  • Reduced un-scheduled service time, due to the elimination of many of the “nuisance” downtime events that occur due to spreader hydraulics (bad hose connections, etc.)
  • Eliminate the clean-up costs associated with oil spills

Major Features

  • One or two 20′, one 30′ (option) or one 40′ container can be lifted without changing the spreader
  • Recessed end beams allow handling of lashing frames and hatch covers
  • Reduced maintenance requirements, due to the elimination of hydraulics


Lifting capacity (SWL)

  • One container 51 metric tons evenly loaded
  • One container 51 metric tons ± 10% eccentric load
  • Twin-lift of two 20’ containers 2 x 32.5 metric tons evenly loaded
  • Lifting lugs 4 x 10 metric tons in the main frame and end beams

Telescopic motion

  • STR45E: From 20’ to 45’ in approx. 30 sec.
  • STR40E: From 20’ to 40’ in approx. 28 sec.

Tare weight

  • STR45E: 11.3 metric tons (without extra equipment)
  • STR40E: 9.8 metric tons (without extra equipment)

Design criteria

  • EN13001; DIN 15018 H2B4; FEM 1.001; British standard BS 2573
