Port Handling Wire Ropes

Worldwide handling of goods is continually increasing every year. Therefore the harbours operate on the boarder to their capacity limit although already working day and night. In order to make profitable use of these devices: Safety and reliability are crucial for ropes used on harbour mobile cranes.

The quick loading and unloading of ships is a requirement for reducing needless costs and for profitable operation. The use of high-performance steel wire ropes significantly contributes to the high reliability of ship to shore cranes: 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Different harbour applications such as Straddle-carriers, RTG’s or RMG’s have one thing in common: a non-scheduled down-time of a crane may cause high costs and loss. Backup cranes are rarely – if ever – available. A steel wire rope requires high service life reserves until the next planned crane inspection. TEUFELBERGER has specialized in these requirements.
