Cask cranes

Konecranes cask cranes help you move your spent nuclear fuel safely and efficiently. We have combined time-proven technology with the latest cutting-edge innovations for a reliable cask crane that lasts. In the nuclear industry for over 50 years, we have the knowledge and experience you can trust with your dry cask storage.

Our cask cranes are single failure proof

Konecranes cask cranes use our SupersafeTM patented single failure proof technology. There is almost no chance of accidental load drop. Even during a total loss of power, our cranes can safely lower a load. Add multiple redundant features and fail safe operator controls, and you know your cask is safe with our cranes.

Our nuclear cranes enjoy the full approval of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and are 10CFR50 Appendix B and NQA-1 compliant. They follow the most stringent international safety requirements, including NUREG-0554 and NUREG-0612.

Easy to operate and lower cost of ownership

User-friendly controls allow even an inexperienced operator to make better picks. On-board diagnostics show operators the data they need when they need it. Infinitely variable speed controls help your operators move, lift, and place the casks precisely. The lifting grapple is adaptable to most existing cask containers and can even be used underwater.

An auxiliary hoist for standard lifts saves wear on your main hoist so you can keep it for critical lifts. Service modularity means your equipment is back in operation quickly after maintenance or repair. Nuclear grade paint protects the crane body. Because your cask crane is easy to take care of, it has a longer life cycle, and costs you less in the long-term.
