In the morning of April 17, ZPMC successfully started the delivery of three 3E light quay cranes for Rotterdam ECT Wharf, Holland. With a castor of 72.5 meters, a lifting height of 50 meters and real weight of 1503 tons, this batch of quay crane can upload 18000-container vessel with super length, width and height (3E). Compared with common quay crane, this quay crane successfully reduces its weight by 16.7%, thus belonging to the world’s lightest 3E quay crane. The operation of this batch of quay crane will effectively contribute to establishing Rotterdam wharf into the shipping hub in Europe.
This was the second batch of light 3E quay crane purchased by Rotterdam ECT wharf in ZPMC. Before this, ZPMC delivered five 3E quay cranes for ECT wharf in June 2014, which did well in terms of property, dead load and advancement and won great compliment from customers. These customers said that “thanks to the magnificent performance of ZPMC, we effectively control the overall weight of quay cranes, thus controlling the wheel pressure within the largest range”.
In this batch, ZPMC used lots of automatic technology, which can reduce driver’s operating strength. Moreover, the electric anti-swing system can reduce the swing time and make it more convenient for drivers to lift containers; ship-type scanning system can enable elevation and trolleys to avoid obvious barriers, thus ensuring the safe elevation of trolleys.
Generally speaking, the large-scale development of quay crane will inevitably bring about an increase in its weight. ZPMC used light-weight design in the structure of quay crane, thus effectively controlling the overall weight. The advent of light 3E quay crane makes it possible for old wharves with wheel-pressure limitation to use large quay cranes, thus creating conditions for 3E vessels to dock and bringing about new economic growth for the long-term development. As one of ZPMC’s regular customers, Holland ECT wharf has gradually purchased over 100 sets of port machinery in ZPMC.
