Why extending a crane’s lifetime is important for the environment?

Extending a crane's lifetime

Why is it so important to make sure the crane will run safely and problem-free for a long time?

At Konecranes, we are committed to environmental responsibility and always strive to minimize the environmental impact of our operations and products.

Crane’s lifecycle phase: Maintenance

If equipment is not properly maintained, breakdowns can be expected, and a lot of resources will be wasted. As we strive to minimize the environmental impact of our products at Konecranes, we want to make sure the products lifetime is as long as possible.

Example of actions

We offer industry-leading maintenance services to keep your equipment running safely and problem-free for a long time. Modernizations typically increase the safety, reliability, and performance of the whole crane, improve energy efficiency, and extend the remaining lifetime of the product. Konecranes TRUCONNECT Remote Monitoring supports predictive maintenance with real-time data on the use and condition of cranes, enabling us to provide the right service at the right time, and minimizing the number of our maintenance visits. At best, we can extend a product’s lifetime by decades.
