Total Efficiency for Port Logistics 

Control Techniques & Leroy-Somer’s variable speed modular drives, high-efficiency motors and dedicated Crane Management System provide fault tolerant port crane solutions that increase energy and fuel savings.

Our drives, motors and control systems are installed in many port applications all around the world. We provide compact and flexible solutions with the power and control required to move materials efficiently and safely.

Backed by many years of experience, our expertise allows us to maximize the automation, speed and reliability of your cranes and material handling equipment such as conveyors, feeders, hoppers and stackers.

Local expert port logistics support and services
Our extensive port application expertise is available locally through our global Automation Centre network, providing:

  • In-house project design and management, from small-scale retrofit to full port crane and transportation systems
  • Software development and engineering support
  • Panel-building, installation and project commissioning
  • First class tailored services and support to ensure optimized performance throughout the system’s life, future upgrades and expansion
Modular Drive Systems
Our compact modular drives are capable of driving loads of up to 2.8 MW, and yet each module is compact and light enough to be easily handled on site, simplifying installation and maintenance.  They can be configured to provide redundancy so that cranes can continue to operate, even if a module fails. Energy efficient fault tolerant drive and motor solutions increase operations, but with reduced operation costs.
Comprehensive hoisting motors
Our  proven standard technology provides comprehensive hoisting motor range:
  • High speed range to increase crane productivity
  • Low inertia for smoother start/run/stop operations extend crane lifetime
  • Safety with the FCPL built-in brakes
  • Low maintenance solution
Crane Management System (CMS)
Our CMS monitors physical and operating conditions of the crane on a real time basis. It can be used to operate the crane, schedule maintenance, analyse crane faults and provide crane production data. Remote control (RCMS) reduces crane downtime and maintenance costs.
Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS)
Our DGPS is a GPS-based automatic steering and yard management system for port applications, which can be used on both RTG and RMG cranes. The system offers satellite guided relative positioning (differential) mode, giving excellent accuracy with minimal positioning error.
Fuel saving and power generation
Our RISGA system and variable speed generator solutions allow fuel savings while power generation is optimized to meet the actual needs of the system. Regenerative drives also allow energy released during braking to be returned to the network.
