    Shore power

    Shore power, also known as cold ironing or alternative marine power, is the provision of shoreside electrical power to a ship at berth. It is a green concept that consists in providing electrical power from the shore to a ship while it’s docked, thereby allowing a ship’s auxiliary engine to be turned off and stop the pollution.
    Tec Container has the aim to improve the health and the lives of port communities, that’s why they are offering different shore power solutions.

    Spreader beam

    The spreader beam is a “below the hook” lifting device that uses two or more hooks that meet along a beam. The spreader beam is connecting to the hook by slings. Spreader beams are used to convert lifting loads into compression forces (in the beam) and into tensile forces (in the slings). The spreader beams also help to have greater control of the load and reduce the chances of the load tipping, crushing or damaging cargo.
