Expansions sees Cavotec move to new premises

Cavotec UK : 12 February, 2010  (Company News)
Continued growth in the power connector market has resulted in Cavotec opening new premises in Southern Sweden
Heavy-duty electrical power connector and power unit manufacturer, Cavotec
Connectors, is continuing its solid growth with the opening of new premises in Staffanstorp, southern Sweden.

“We have enjoyed consistently steady growth throughout our history and our new premises represent the latest round of our development,” says Cavotec Connectors Managing Director, Mats Tegnér.

Established in 1991, Cavotec Connectors 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.

Cavotec Connectors designs and produces electrical power connectors, power supply connectors, power cable connectors and rotating electrical power connectors with capacities of up to 600Amp, 15 000V. The move sees Cavotec Connectors 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.

Cavotec Connectors new address is:

Meteorvägen 5, SE-245 34 Staffanstorp, Sweden
Telephone: +46 46 202 112 - Fax: +46 46 200 303

The engineering expertise developed at Cavotec Connectors 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 Connectors also designs and manufactures power supply systems for tunneling 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 Connectors products, as do steel and aluminium plants all over the world.

Recent product developments include Cavotec Connector’s Smart Push/Pull Technology fitted with fiber optics (FO) and further improvements to Connector’s range of explosion proof connectors (Ex-proof).

Cavotec’s Smart Push/Pull PC6, 7.2kV technology is now integrated with FO into a 7.2kV/540A connector and uses expanded beam technology. Highly resistant to dust, debris and vibration, the unit is designed for multimode 50μm/62.5μm and single mode fibres. Typical insertion loss is 1.5dB. The removable lens system makes it possible to change damaged lenses without having to change the insert and their hermaphroditic design reduces the number of spare parts.

Cavotec Connector Ex-proof connectors are designed for use in hazardous environments, and are rated Exd IIc T3. Max 690V AC, 660 Amp in Single Pole, in Multi- Pin 18 pin 500V AC or 25 pin 50 V AC. The connector uses a bayonet ring to fix the plug and socket and secures the ring with a set-screw. The connector uses the same inert configuration as the standard PC2 and is designed for on both onshore and offshore applications. It is produced with the same marine grade aluminium as all other Cavotec connectors and offers IP66 protection.
