For every type of power plant, Konecranes provides materials handling solutions. From a traditional coal-burning operation, to a waste management centre, or a nuclear facility, we understand your needs; wind turbines are a particular speciality. With longer uptime and greater efficiency, more power is produced and safety is improved with Konecranes machinery in place.
Specialised cranes for power production
We make a range of tailored cranes that we adjust to meet your specific needs; for example, a coal handling crane with a clamshell bucket, or a polar crane to manage the building and decommissioning of equipment in the containment dome of your nuclear facility.
Our tXN electric chain hoist has been specially designed for a wind turbine. Its compact size, light weight, and fast hoisting speed make it ideal for the unique conditions inside a turbine nacelle.
Standardised cranes for power plants
For other tasks in your plant, we have more standard cranes. Our turbine hall crane helps you install and adjust your valuable turbines, generators and auxiliaries accurately. Choose a SMARTON® crane for maintenance, and a CXT® crane or equivalent for your workshops. Jib cranes and monorails are ideal for your smaller lifting tasks.
Smart solutions for operating cranes
Our unique smart solutions make operating our cranes practically child’s play. With advanced features, such as sway control, adjustable working limits, and target positioning, your load goes exactly where you want it. Safety and precision are assured.
