Cavotec to open new innovation centre

(Posted on 01/10/20)

A new facility will bring together Cavotec's capabilities in AI, remote connectivity, high power high speed electrical charging, and battery technology.

Cavotec, the world’s leading manufacturer of connection and electrification solutions for ports, airports, and a wide variety of industrial applications, will open a new innovation centre in the Netherlands at the beginning of 2021.

Focusing primarily on the maritime sector, the new centre will be in charge of Cavotec’s research and development activities to bring to maturity breakthrough solutions that will increase efficiency and productivity while also reducing environmental impact. The centre will bring together the company’s capabilities within areas such as artificial intelligence, remote connectivity, high power high speed electrical charging, and battery technology.

“The interest by our marine customers in finding solutions which increase productivity and simultaneously offer sustainable operations has increased drastically. The creation of an innovation centre is an important step in building on Cavotec’s leading position in delivering what we call profitable sustainability for our customers. Locating our new centre in the Netherlands will give us access to a maritime cluster that is home to many leading shipping lines, port terminal operators and is full of highly talented individuals,” said Mikael Norin, Cavotec CEO.

The centre will also host a support hub for turn-key solutions for Shore Power and MoorMaster™, Cavotec’s automated mooring technology.

“Our Centres of Excellence will continue to be responsible for the engineering and manufacturing for each product category. By bringing together subject matter experts in complementary fields such as project management, civil engineering, and project financing we will enhance our ability to offer integrated turn-key solutions as well as new “as a Service” (aaS) offerings,” said Norin.

“We want to contribute to a future world that is cleaner, safer and more efficient by providing innovative connection solutions for ships, aircraft and mobile equipment today.”
