Our forklift attachments are made for loads 20 T and up. These can then be equipped with coil handlers, clamping units, special forks, or multi-purpose hooks.

Lashing Cages: Cook Islands

Safety cages can significantly improve safety standards and reduce costs. They provide a safe and secure environment for your stevedores in emergencies.

Did you know that these cages were endorsed by the International Labor Organization in their health and safety report for ports in 2003?

We have an array of lashing and personnel safety cages including the under hook, gondola, and under spreader types. These can be delivered with added rescue packs like safety nets, first aid boxes, and lifelines.

You also have the option to include electrical outlets so on-site powered tools can be used!

Container Lashing Equipment: Cook Islands

Fastening and securing containers and equipment is crucial so your loads stay safe.

This is true whether they’re just stacked or being delivered. Also, can you imagine the lives that are at risk if the cargoes aren’t properly secured?

All our products are European-designed and meet international standards. They range from:

  • Container Lashing Equipment – container stacking accessories, as well as loose and fixed lashing fittings.
  • Ro-Ro Lashing Equipment – loose and fixed lashing parts to fix rolling stock on trucks or on board.
  • Other Lashing Equipment – ISO corners, lifting lugs, and twistlocks.

Spreader Beams and Lifting Beams: Cook Islands

Are you struggling with wide and heavy loads? If you answered yes, our standard and modified beams are the perfect assets for your lifting equipment!

The most popular under-the-hook lifting devices, spreader and lifting beams help stabilize and support loads during overhead lifts. They keep the lifting slings below them at or at least close to perpendicular to the horizon.

This helps prevent damaging the load, lifting slings, and rigging hardware. Also, they help keep the slings from sliding off loads while they’re being lifted.

We have standard, modular, heavy-duty, and special beams you can attach to tandem cranes for load balancing and gravity load regulation.

Tec Container Asia Pacific Servicing the Cook Islander Market

Found in the South Pacific Ocean, the Cook Islands is a parliamentary island country and is an associated state of New Zealand.

It has 15 islands whose land area is total to 240 square kilometers. Furthermore, its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) covers 1,800,000 square kilometers of ocean!

Rarotonga, its largest island, is home to rugged mountains and Avarua, Cook Islands’ capital. Aitutaki Island, which has a vast lagoon surrounded by sandy islets and coral reefs, is found to the north.

However, its geography strongly affects its economy. It has limited manufacturing, lacks major natural resources, suffers from natural disasters, and lacks adequate infrastructure since it’s isolated from foreign markets.

Despite that, tourism is its main industry with more than 168,000 people visiting in 2018. Other notable industries include offshore banking, pearls, and fruit and marine exports.

Here are the major ports of the country:

  • Port of Avatiu
  • Arutanga Port
  • Arorangi Jetty
