STS45E is an all-electric separating twin-lift spreader for use in STS cranes. Due to the all-electric design components this spreader weighs only 11.7 metric tons and has lower energy consumption than competing brands.


Possible container combinations: 20´, 40´, 45´, 2×20´

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

  • More above-deck containers can be moved in twin-lift mode
  • Two 20′ containers can be moved apart from 0 to 1.6 meters (0′-5′) under full load
  • Recessed end beams allow handling of lashing frames and hatch covers
  • Fast trouble shooting


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

Separating capacity

  • 0-1600 mm with full load

Tare weight

  • Approx. 11.7 metric tons (without extra equipment)

Telescopic motion

  • From 20’ to 45’ in approx. 30 sec.

Design criteria
