Lifting Magnets Responding to Emergency Power Outages in Port Area

In the bustling environment of a large port, efficiency and safety are paramount. Every operation, whether it’s loading or unloading cargo, must be conducted swiftly and securely. However, what happens when the power goes out unexpectedly? How do port authorities ensure the continuity of operations while keeping safety at the forefront? Enter electro permanent lifting magnets, the innovative solution revolutionizing port operations in the face of emergency power outages.

Case Study: Implementing Electro Permanent Lifting Magnets in A Port

In a pivotal pilot project at a major port, the need arose for lifting equipment that could adapt to various scenarios across the port, including gantry cranes, overhead cranes, and portal cranes. The goal was to standardize the equipment, making it versatile, easily replaceable, and replicable. Additionally, there was a need for automated tracking functionality to save time during replacements and ensure production efficiency.

Prior to the introduction of electro permanent lifting magnets, the port relied on manual rope lifting, which not only posed safety risks but also lagged behind the trends of the modern era, where energy efficiency and operator safety are paramount concerns.

Meeting Diverse Challenges

The challenges encountered in the field were diverse and demanding. Steel pipe products were not neatly arranged in cargo holds, varying in size from 4.5 to 12 meters in length and 200 to 350 millimeters in outer diameter. The weight of these pipes could reach up to 7 tons each, requiring efficient handling, especially when lifting multiple pipes simultaneously. Additionally, considerations for power supply coordination during crane operations and the unpredictability of emergency power outages added layers of complexity.lifting magnets for round steel at port

The Solution: Electro Permanent Lifting Magnets

In response to these challenges, we proposed the implementation of two units of electro permanent lifting magnets, with control systems housed within the driver’s cabin. The power supply was integrated with the crane’s lifting mechanism for quick deployment during operations. In case of emergency power outages, the magnets would maintain their lifting capacity without the need for continuous power supply, ensuring the safety of personnel and cargo.


In the dynamic world of port logistics, adaptability and innovation are essential for success. By harnessing the power of electro permanent lifting magnets, port operators can navigate challenges such as power outages with confidence, ensuring continuous operations and safeguarding both personnel and cargo. As we look towards the future of port management, investing in advanced lifting technologies will be instrumental in driving efficiency, safety, and sustainability forward. For more information, please contact HVR MAG at
