Spreader manufacturer Bromma Group has announced the organisation of a series of three-day Bromma University training events, beginning in September 2001.

The events, designed especially for terminal staff with responsibility for the electrical system on cranes and spreaders, will focus on Bromma’s new SCS2 spreader communications system – now standard on all Bromma ship to shore telescopic spreaders.

This new Bromma technology delivers condition monitoring and faster fault diagnostics. “Its simple-to-understand, intuitive fault diagnostics let terminal users react faster to fault events – for quick spreader repair, fewer spreader change-outs, and lower overall downtime,” the company claims.

The events are being held: • 25-27 September 2001 Bromma University in Stockholm, Sweden • 13-15 November 2001 Bromma University in Durham, North Carolina, USA • 22-24 January 2002 Bromma University in Hong Kong The cost of each training event, including four evenings of lodging, meals, entertainment and training materials, is US$2,500.

Bromma is one of the leading manufacturers of crane spreaders. Its training events are open to any terminal, worldwide, that uses Bromma spreaders in its container-handling operations.
