STS cranes

Ship-to-shore cranes make it possible to unload container ships particularly quickly. VAHLE solutions ensure efficient power transmission and flexible data communication between ship and shore.

Energy and control signals for container gantry cranes

Ship-to-shore cranes are among the most important technical equipment in the container terminal. They ensure fast handling times and smooth transfers to reach stackers, straddle carriers and AGVs. Nothing works without them. This makes it all the more important to ensure a reliable, safe and continuous supply of power and data to the STS cranes.

Container gantry cranes are predominantly equipped with cable trolleys. For the power supply,VAHLE offers a time-tested modular system that can carry various power and data lines individually according to customer requirements.

Alternatively, power and data rails are also used today for the automation of STS cranes. This makes the systems less susceptible to wind and weather, and also allows higher travel speeds. The modern technology ensures a reliable power supply and efficient communication, video and control signal transmission. In addition, the entire system can be controlled remotely via a control center.

As a long-standing expert in port technology, VAHLE supplies various components for the power supply, positioning and control of STS cranes.
