Konecranes service business advances circular economy by focusing on extending product lifecycles. By maintaining the equipment, we can extend its lifetime and create significant raw-material and emission savings. The need for major equipment overhauls will very likely increase as it's a cost-efficient way to upgrade the current fleet. Our service business supports the mitigation of climate impacts with efficient maintenance concept, spare part availability and re-engineering obsolete spare parts, utilizing data from the fleet and by taking part in the product development.
By providing predictive maintenance services we help customers gain maximum lifecycle value from their products. Connected devices and online platforms provide data on the state of components in real time, which leads to a smarter use of resources and extends the lifetime of a product. With predictive maintenance unplanned service hours can be avoided and equipment performance can be maintained at the highest possible level, extending a product’s lifecycle.
Konecranes offers several retrofit solutions for customers to reduce emissions, increase fuel efficiency and update technology to current standards. Modernizing an old crane instead of purchasing a new one, saves hundreds of tonnes of steel, resulting in remarkable emission savings. Modernizations and retrofits also enhance the energy efficiency and performance of the equipment.
