Cavotec is aiming to open a new innovation centre in the Netherlands at the beginning of 2021, which it says will bring together the company's capabilities in AI, remote connectivity, high power high speed electrical charging and battery technology.

Focusing primarily on the maritime sector, the new centre will be at the head of Cavotec’s research and development activities into solutions that will increase efficiency and productivity while reducing environmental impact.

Mikael Norin, CEO, Cavotec, said: "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.”

The centre will host a support hub for turn-key solutions for Shore Power and 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.
