Heavy-duty electrical power connector and power unit manufacturer, Cavotec Connectors, continues its solid growth with the opening of new premises in Staffanstorp, southern Sweden.
Established in 1991, Cavotec became part of global engineering group, Cavotec MSL, six years later. Initially, employing just two people, the company has grown to have a staff of 18.
The move sees Cavotec increase its factory space from 650 square metres to 2 000 square metres. The company’s previous facility was located in Dalby, also in southern Sweden.
The engineering expertise developed at Cavotec sees application across a broad range of sectors including ports, airports, mining and tunnelling, the oil and gas industry and general industry sectors. Major customers include ABB, Konecranes, Atlas Copco, Sandvik, Hyundai, Bombardier, Mitsubishi, NCC, Skanska and Siemens.
The company supplies shore-to-ship power systems that power container vessels and cruise ships, where power demand is frequently equivalent to that of a small town. Cavotec connectors are used in shore power installations at the ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach and in Alaska, and for ferries in Stockholm, Gotheburg and Helsingborg and ports in Australia and China.
Cavotec also designs and manufactures power supply systems for tunnelling and mining applications in Africa, China, Central and South America and the Channel Tunnel between France and the UK.
Offshore and energy projects in Canada, China, the North Sea, and the Gulf of Mexico, rely on Cavotec products, as do steel and aluminium plants all over the world.
Recent product developments include Cavotec’s Smart Push/Pull Technology fitted with fiber optics (FO) and further improvements to Connector’s range of explosion proof connectors (Ex-proof).
Cavotec Australia is the local branch of he organisation.
