Tratos China engineers have been at work on site at Qingdao Qianwan Container Terminal (QQCTN) in China, commissioning and carrying out system checks before its reeling cables, 38 ASC, go into commission. QQCTN Container Terminal in Qingdao is a joint venture funded by Qingdao Port Group, Dubai DPworld, China COSCO, Danmark A.P.M Maersk and China Hong Kong CMT.
Tratos supplied 38 lengths of newly-developed ESDB high-tension reeling cables, which run at a maximum speed of 270m per minute, and have been very quickly accepted by most of the world’s automatic container terminals.
As part of Tratos’ client service, a dynamic interrogation, testing and commissioning programme is implemented before the opening of the terminal, to provide smooth running from day one.
Cosco XOCT (Xiamen) and QQCTN (Qingdao), two leading automated container terminals in China, chose Tratos’ innovative EDSB cables for their Automatic Stacking Cranes (ASC).
Rainer Pollmann from Tratos Germany worked alongside the terminal’s technical team to measure static parameters and monitor the dynamic performance of the whole reeling application.
Joined by Philip Zhao from Tratos China, Mr Pollmann has maintained practical dialogue with XOCT’s engineering team, so that they could benefit from the experience of running with Tratos’ successful automatic reeling application at other international container terminals.
Tratos’ Chinese customers pronounced themselves satisfaction on both cables’ excellent performance and the company’s professionalism in setting up and introducing the system.
