New Contracts For 55 STS45 Separating Twins
Stockholm-based Bromma, the world leader in crane spreaders, has won new major contracts for a total of 55 STS45 separating twin-lift ship-to-shore spreaders, plus new orders for 9 SSX45 single-lift ship-to-shore spreaders and 9 Bromma Tandem™ multi-lift spreaders. Bromma STS45 spreaders are the container handling industry’s best-selling ship-to-shore spreader due to the inherent productivity and versatility of these proven and durable spreaders.
These 73 ship-to-shore crane spreaders orders newly on order have contributed to one of the strongest commercial months in Bromma’s history, with more than 150 crane spreaders ordered from Bromma in June 2012 alone.
Key ship-to-shore orders include:
- 15 STS45 spreaders to HHLA Container Terminal Burchardkai, Germany (Bromma already has sold more than 200 crane spreaders to HHLA)
- 22 STS45 spreaders to the APM Terminals project at Maasvlakte II in Rotterdam, Netherlands, plus 9 Tandem™ multi-lift spreaders
- 9 SSX45 spreaders to Transnet, South Africa
- 6 STS45 spreaders to the Port of Malta
- 12 STS45 spreaders to Colombo International Container Terminal in Sri Lanka
Further adding to the importance of these orders is customer specification of Bromma Green Zone™ fleet productivity software on the 6 spreaders headed to the Port of Malta and the 31 spreaders headed to APM Terminals at Maasvlakte II. Green Zone™ tools have been designed to support the adoption of best-in-class maintenance processes and tpoptimize spreader fleet performance. Green Zone™ is helping terminals reinvent spreader fleet maintenance and repair in a way that will lower spreader fleet downtime.
The spreaders headed to Malta and Maasvlakte II will be equipped with Fleet Doctor™, Roadmap™, and Work Order™ applications.
Fleet Doctor™ helps terminals take the guesswork out of diagnostics and repair. Sensors on the spreader function as an early warning system, alerting technicians to future problems, and giving technicians specific diagnostic information so as to reduce return trips to the spreader shop to get tools or parts the technician needs. This in turn will mean fewer spreader change-outs, because repairs will be faster. Fleet Doctor™ delivers early knowledge, identifying early indications of decelerating performance when spreader functions begin to decline. It makes possible early intervention, helping terminals fix spreader functions before they fail.
Roadmap™ analyzes the past performance of the spreader, giving maintenance and operations managers a spreader function history (with the 10 most frequent fault areas), a fleet status evaluation based on spreader KPIs (key performance indicators), and an overall framework for understanding and tracking fleet improvement. Ideal for senior maintenance managers, it “maps” spreader fault history, and provides managers with guidance on how to allocate preventive maintenance time in order to keep spreader fleet faults from re-occurring.
Finally, Work Order™ makes a simple but fundamental change in how maintenance is scheduled.
Day-to-day spreader service assignments are generated based on spreader usage rather than the calendar. This running-hour or cycle-based approach to maintenance planning gives terminals a living service plan that adapts in real time to activity levels in the fleet. Based on spreader usage, and recent spreader fault events or warning triggers, Work Order™ creates daily service priorities, and lets terminals adjust maintenance triggers based on a terminal’s running hour or cycle preferences.
Work Order™ is also dynamic, in that the program automatically updates itself to accommodate day-to-day changes in spreader performance, and then adapts service plans accordingly. At container terminals nothing ever goes exactly according to plan. Work Order™ adapts.
