The contracts were for Humber Refinery and the DP World Southampton container terminal in the UK.

Conductix-Wampfler operates internationally under the Delachaux Group, which has an annual turnover of the €800m.

The firm manufactures and installs festoon systems, conductor rails, energy guiding chains, spring cable reels, motorised cable reels, slip ring assemblies and contactless power transmission systems. It additionally makes conductor bars, trench covers and festoon systems.? ?The contract for DP World Southampton container terminal requires Conductix-Wampfler to replace cable carrier systems on three ship-to-shore cranes.

The firm will pre-build festoons at its base before shipping and installing them at a terminal on the south coast of England.? ?Under the second deal, Conductix-Wampfler will provide a replacement heavy-duty festoon system for one of the two coking grab cranes at the Humber Refinery. It also contracts the firm to repair a festoon system on a grab crane.  ? ?

Conductix-Wampfler’s UK managing director, Alan Jones, said: “These latest contracts reinforce the firm’s ambition to secure more work in the port, marine and offshore renewable sectors. Firms use us for our product and engineering expertise. ? ?

“The work we are carrying out at DP World Southampton and the Humber Refinery will help to showcase the quality of our products. Our aim is to now forge greater links with other ports around the UK and build a reputation as a leading mobile energy specialist in this sector.”? ?Jones said the firm’s mobile energy products can enhance cranes’ environmental sustainability and cost-effectiveness.

“In the future we expect to see great demand for work on RTG cranes. Many of these cranes still rely on dirty diesel powered systems, which are costly and not environmentally friendly. Conversion to our electric powered systems will dramatically reduce any port’s carbon emissions.?

 ?“We believe Conductix-Wampfler is ideally placed to help firms tackle the challenge of becoming more environmentally sustainable while remaining energy efficient and cutting costs.”?

The firm will be targeting more ‘green’ contracts for port, offshore and Rubber Tyred Gantry crane business.

?Conductix-Wampfler reported a 20% turnover surge in the last 12 months, rising to £4.3m, after signing a string of global export sales in the rail, automation and utility sectors.

Jones continued: “Conductix-Wampfler continues to go from strength to strength.” Recent contracts have seen our products used in China, India, Africa and Europe. We have a solid core of business, which keeps the firm very stable. There are also a number of very exciting deals in the pipeline which could lead to decade long contracts.”
