ZPMC secures the first contract for intelligent straddle carrier

China’s leading port machinery company Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industry Co. (ZPMC) has announced the first contract for its intelligent straddle carrier with Hutchison Ports.

ZPMC will deliver eight intelligent straddle carriers for Hutchison to be put into use at Stockholm Terminal of Sweden.

The intelligent straddle carrier manufactured by ZPMC can be operated in either manual or unmanned mode, and can be switched freely between the two. The straddle carrier is designed in module with the diesel and battery hybrid power, driving wheel-side synchronous motor and eight-wheel hydraulic independent steering system, said ZPMC.

ZPMC announced this new generation of intelligent straddle carrier technologies in 2018, which was a brand new product and under testing at that time.
