Project: Qingdao Qianwan Container Terminal (QQCT)
Location: Qingdao, China
Company: Qingdao Port Group, Dubai DP World, China COSCO, Denmark A.P.M Maersk and China Hong Kong CMT
Tratos has supplied 38 lengths of newly-developed Tratosflex ESDB high-tension reeling cables, which run at a maximum speed of 270m per minute, to Qingdao Qianwan Container Terminal for its Automated Stacking Cranes (ASC).
As part of the Tratos’ client service, a dynamic interrogation, testing and commissioning programme was implemented before the opening of the terminal to provide smooth running from day one. Tratos worked alongside the terminal’s technical team to measure static parameters and monitor the dynamic performance of the whole reeling application.
QQCT was established in 2000 and is located on the west coast of the Pacific Ocean. It can support the loading and unloading of super-large container ships of above 20000TEU for 24 hours and has a designed annual container throughput of 6.5 million TEUs.
