High Performance Crane Cable Supplier
Linking safety and high performance to sustainable port operations worldwide
To meet an ever-growing need for power, the world is increasingly turning to renewable and sustainably sourced energy.
Generations of crane cable expertise
For decades the crane industry has relied upon Prysmian Group for high-quality cable solutions. Our innovative designs and in-house formulated and produced materials mean longer cable life, resulting in increased production, reduced downtime and significantly lowered costs.
And thanks to our supply of cable for electrification projects in port infrastructure, we have contributed to the reduction of CO2 emission produced by the ports themselves.
For example, today, short electrical connections for a vessel’s power supply have replaced diesel engines used in the past for the same purpose.
Products and solutions offered by Prysmian include:
- Cables specifically designed to withstand severe duty flexing and torsional stress
- Heavy-duty, robust cable that resists abrasion, chemical solvents, oil, flame, moisture and the most diverse environmental conditions
- Hybrid cable solutions that combine power supply and data transmission features
Prysmian is an expert manufacturer of specialized cables that withstand the flexing and high stress of container-handling terminals and yard cranes.
Prysmian offers a competitive array of durable and dependable cable solutions, engineered specifically for demanding environments and conditions.
Prysmian has long-standing experience and expertise in the development of rubber-based materials. Our world-leading products are all manufactured in-house using rubber compounds formulated especially by the Group.
Prysmian is a proud member of the Port Equipment Manufacturing Association (PEMA).
An international commitment to quality
The quality management systems of our manufacturing facilities have been independently audited and certified (via Underwater Laboratories Inc. or the main international standards such as VDE, IEC-EN, etc.) to conform to the quality requirements set forth in ISO-9000: 2000.
Our deep commitment to delivering quality products and services, and our dedication to continually improving our practices are embodied in our industry-recognized global certifications.
The product range comprises of:
Festoon Cables—RoundToggle Details
Designed and manufactured for use in continuous flexing, twisting, and other abusive physical applications where flame, abrasion, chemicals, moisture, impact, tearing and temperature extremes are considerations. Applications include festoon systems.
Festoon Cables—FlatToggle Details
Designed and manufactured for use in continuous flexing, twisting, and other abusive physical applications where flame, abrasion, chemicals, moisture, impact, tearing and temperature extremes are considerations. Applications include festoon systems. Flatform is preferred where space is at a premium, since it can be stacked, or where extreme flexing is a requirement.
Spreader CablesToggle Details
Crane spreader basket cables are specifically designed for use on the latest generations of high-speed container cranes with gravity-fed collector baskets. They combine the features of superior flexibility with additional ballast needed to operate at speeds of up to 160 meters/min (8.75 ft/sec). Crane spreader reeling cables are specifically designed and manufactured to withstand harsh environments, high-hoist and trolley speeds and extreme mechanical stresses predominant on vertical reeling systems found in new generation ship-to-shore container cranes.
LV Reeling CablesToggle Details
Flexible reeling cables for very high mechanical stresses. Designed and manufactured to be particularly suitable for operations involving frequent reeling and unreeling use including spring and motor driven reels.
MV Reeling CablesToggle Details
Flexible reeling cable for high mechanical stresses, e.g., dynamic tensile loads. Designed and manufactured for use in medium-voltage reeling applications on container handling cranes, log handling cranes, stacker reclaimers, ship loaders and unloaders, and other similar material handling applications involving frequent reeling and unreeling use.
Indoor/material handling technologies are constantly evolving as demand for instantaneous movement of goods has increased at a rapid pace. Prysmian has developed a comprehensive range of material handling cables to meet the needs of current industry standards.
Having worked over many years in close cooperation with many significant terminal operators as well as crane and reel manufacturers, Prysmian has developed extensive know-how about the special operating conditions for cranes and material handling equipment.
