NORD DRIVESYSTEMS supplied more than 170 heavy-duty geared motors for the Wugang transshipment port. Headquartered near Germany’s foremost harbor city of Hamburg, NORD was anything but a stranger to the maritime world: the company has a long track record as a supplier of mechanical and electronic drive technology for gantry cranes and other port machinery. The NORD DRIVESYSTEMS Group's Chinese subsidiary managed the WISCO project. Amongst other pieces of heavy machinery, it equipped two mobile ship loaders with a capacity of 5,000 tons per hour each. WISCO was impressed by the superior quality and durability of the drive products as well as the pre- and after-sales services the drive specialist rendered.
