Project: Rizhao Port
Tratos & Rizhao port cooperation
Rizhao port, the largest and busiest iron ore terminal in Asia, has chosen Tratosflex-ES cables for a total of fourteen machines since its opening in 2004.
The Tratosflex cables are running well on four truck-loaders, six stackers & reclaimers and four ship-unloaders made by three of the biggest port machine manufacturers in China: ZPMC, Wuxi Gongli Engineering Machinery Ltd. Co. and Changchun Power Generation Equipment Ltd. Co.
A spokesperson commented, “We completely trust and rely on the cables made by Tratos. All 14 jumbos are equipped with Tratos cable because their performance does not disappoint, even in this extremely demanding industry.”
