About the Green Energy Overheight Frames

The BA-030E series overheight frames represent the most advanced solution in managing over-sized cargo in a Port. The frame is fully automatic with a solar-powered battery to run signal lighting and acoustic signals to maximise workers’ safety.

The BA-030E is an automatic attachment for spreaders, designed for handling oversized containers, flat racks and platforms. Tec’s model is a universal frame that can be picked up by any ISO spreaders with no need of any extra modifications.

Twistlocks are locked/unlocked automatically thanks to a fully electric mechanism which is in compliance with every safety standards.
