Tercat_Barcelona_cranes_portKonecranes has awarded cable manufacturer and supplier Tratos the contract to supply medium voltage rubber insulated and sheathed drum reeling cables for its Automated Stacking Cranes (ASC), to be used at the new Muelle Prat container terminal in Spain.
Following the takeover of the Muelle Prat container terminal from the Barcelona Port Authority, Terminal Catalunya S.A (TERCAT) - a member of the Hutchison Port Holdings (HPH) Group – has started construction of a new 1,000-metre-long quay featuring 18 container stacking blocks with 36 one-over-five ASCs.
The ASCs will be supplied by KoneCranes with Tratosflex cable, which has been specifically designed for high speed reeling. Tratosflex features a unique internal cable design, with the structure tightened against the internal relative movement. This prevents the cable from twisting and leading to possible breakage – extremely dangerous when reeling at speeds up to 300m/m. As a result of this sophisticated, reliable design, Konecranes now regularly specifies Tratosflex cable for its ASCs worldwide.

"microcables" Open Settlement ProtocolTratos has launched the innovative and cost-effective Tratos Microcable solution for Open Settlement Protocol (OSP) applications in the Broadband market.
Tratos Microcable contains a high-fibre density yet is exceptionally compact and lightweight, thus maximising the fibre count available in a small cable diameter.  It is produced in stranded loose tube design and is available in fibre counts from 144 up to 192, with outer diameters ranging between 4.0 and 7.5mm; in fact, the 7.5mm Tratos Microcable incorporating 192 fibres is actually the smallest such cable in the world today.Even with the maximum number of fibres incorporated, Tratos Microcable remains flexible (it has a minimum bending radius of 15 x outer diameter without tension) and lightweight enough for air-blown installation in very small ducts or sub ducts using Tratos Microduct. Furthermore, Tratos Microcable requires fewer joints in installation, providing reduced resistance when being passed through the ducting. 
As a result, Tratos Microcable is ideal for installations where duct space is at a premium and has the added benefit of being easy to handle and install. It also provides a simple, neat and commercially viable solution to upgrade a network at a later date as fibre is simply deployed as and when needed.
Tratos Microcable can be used in operating temperatures of -30°C / +60ºC.  It has been designed and manufactured to IEC 60794.
