The Bromma Tandem fixed-length spreader is an ideal choice for customers who are interested in gaining the added productivity of twin-40 foot container handling, but who are somewhat restricted in their choices by cranes with limited lifting capacity.
A container terminal with a high percentage of 40 foot containers will gain an immediate boost to its lift cycle productivity by changing from single-lift 40 foot container handling to a Tandem Fixed-Length spreader.
In addition to its ability to be installed on container cranes with limited lifting capacity, the Bromma Tandem Fixed-Length Spreader is also, from a design standpoint, the simplest Tandem model available today. It uses Bromma spreader design and technology that has been proven to be reliable over many years and literally millions of lift cycles. This spreader has also proven its merits for some time during active service in Europe, where it has been operating under a crane with an outreach of 56 metres and a lifting capacity of 77 tonne in the ropes.
Customers should keep in mind that the operating limitation of the Tandem Fixed-Length spreader is that it needs to be switched-out in the event that 20' or 45' containers need to be lifted. Spreader change-out can be made relatively quickly, with proper mechanical and electrical interfaces, but the periodic need for any spreader change-out will of course place a limitation on overall production. This is why the Tandem Fixed-Length spreader is best suited for terminals where ships tend to be stacked with a high percentage of 40' containers.
