Automate the connection of mobile equipment to improve safety and efficiency at your operations.

Cavotec Automatic Plug-In system is one of our latest innovations, and is set to revolutionise the automation and connection of E-RTG cranes, electric vessels and other mobile industrial equipment.


APS automatically connects and disconnects E-RTGs to electrical power.

  1. Reduced CAPEX: limited yard modification and easy integration with existing equipment, requiring limited civil works.
  2. Low OPEX: based on the cable reel technology, automation backed by the high reliability and low maintenance cost of cable reel technology.
  3. Improved productivity: higher throughput including reliable high data volume transmission and system redundancy.
  4. Safer operations: unmanned connection.

APS for e-vessels

APS’ automated connection of ships to electrical power ensures optimal recharging times, thereby maximising operational efficiency and minimising emissions.

  1. Quick and safe connection.
  2. Longer charging time at berth optimising the battery pack design and cost (e-ferries).
  3. Combination with MoorMaster system ensures automated mooring and charging.

APS for e-vehicles

APS charges electric vehicles such as e-trucks and E-AGVs without direct human intervention.

  1. Safer operations thanks to electrical interlocks.
  2. Short charging times.
  3. Limited infrastructure costs.
  4. Robust design.
