Port of Qingdao Automated Container Terminal is able to achieve 5.2 million TEU capacity thanks to the RAM SingFlex twin spreader headblock connection on single hoist cranes.
XINHAUNET news reported in May on the Port of Qingdao putting into operation their fully automated container terminal which has the ability to serve 24,000 container ships every year thanks to the RAM SingFlex tandem headblock connection; which enables the port to increased lifting rates with single hoist cranes.
We reported back in our April 2017 Newsletter on the Port of Qingdao ordering 7 units of our RAM SingFlex single hoist tandem 40 headblocks for their fully automated terminal.
The order followed the terminal’s long study into the RAM SingFlex tandem headblock connection for single hoist cranes with alternatives. The study recommended the RAM SingFlex to be the solution for the two new automated terminals because of the flexibility, low capital cost and proven stable design. It also has the flexibility to couple with all spreaders, ensuring no obsolete equipment.
