Twin-lift spreader for container
The Bromma separating Tandem T45:
For industry-leading terminals that seek to "turn" container ships as rapidly as possible, the Separating Tandem T45 spreader offers dynamic and unmatched loading and unloading capacity. The Tandem T45 has the capacity and the flexibility to handle all possible combinations of 20 foot, 40 foot, and 45 foot containers both quickly and efficiently. It can also handle four 20 foot containers simultaneously and seperate the two 20 foot containers longitudinally between 0 and 1,5 metres. The Seperating Tandem T45 Spreader promises to push productivity per crane lift cycle "to the edge" and greatly improve the overall efficiency with which a container ship may be loaded or unloaded.
Of course, to take full advantage of the lifting capacity of the Tandem T45 will require a higher-capacity container crane. The estimated Tandem T45 spreader weight is 31 tonne, and with spreader capacity of 65x2 tonne (Bromma standard), customers will need a crane capacity of 165 tonne in the ropes. This will most likely prove unrealistic. As such, most customers will rate 20 foot containers to a maximum of 20-25 tonne, thereby resulting in a required crane capacity of 115-135 tonne in the ropes. While capable of enormously productive lifting cycles, the Tandem T45 can be expected to pose no problems in 40 feet cell guides, as the spreader will use the entire cell space.
