Konecranes Wins Crane Order For Kiel Shipyard

by editorial staff WORLD OF INDUSTRIES


Konecranes has won an order from the Thyssenkrupp Marine Systems shipyard to supply 14 process cranes for a shipbuilding hall now being built in Kiel, Germany. The order was booked in July 2021.

The double-girder crane systems, which will be built by Konecranes’ Demag Cranes & Components unit, will be installed in the new production halls in Kiel, which is being developed into an international center of excellence for submarine production. The cranes will have been manufactured, delivered and commissioned by the time work begins in 2023.

The cranes will come with numerous features to increase performance, service life and, in particular, precision. These include optimized rope lead-off on the hoists (to extend the service life of the hoist ropes), extended monitoring of the hoist brake (to improve safety), electronic overload protection with a load spectrum recorder (to determine the remaining service life of the hoists) and 24/7 online support.
