TOC host talk on trends in tandem lifting

TOC Europe 2018 in Rotterdam played host to a talk by Cameron Hay on the trends in tandem lifting that show an increase in ports and terminals using single hoist tandem.

The talk began by making reference to published technical article by SIPG revealing some design and complexity issues with dual hoist operations and that dual hoist operations consume a high amount of energy, which as a result are not generally in high use.  Also discussed was the fact that new terminals are not selecting dual hoist cranes, but instead opting for more economical single hoist dual spreader cranes.

The results of an independent review showed the RAM SingFlex single hoist system was a superior headblock.

Cameron commented

The industry is clearly moving toward higher TEU ratios and tandem 40 will be the norm.  Terminals using SingFlex are achieving greater than 40% of all moves in tandem with its flexible design.”

RAM gives talk at TOC Americas 2017 Bulk Conference

The talk delivered by RAM’s Regional Manager for Latin America, Johnny Medranda centred on the future sustainability of current bulk handling logistic practices, when complying with increasingly stringent environmental issues and financial considerations; and demonstrated an award winning turnkey solution called “Containerised Bulk Handling”.

Recently a container terminal was able to increase its business by injecting >25% more container volume by loading copper concentrate.  One of the reasons for the switch to the CBH system was the benefit to the mining company of a zero loss system with no dust.
