| Partnering with you for growth
Renewable energy provides some of the most challenging crane applications. Konecranes has been meeting the rigorous demands of WtE solutions for over 50 years. Our main goal is to simplify complexity for demanding Waste to Energy applications in the toughest operating environments.
Konecranes waste-to-energy consulting can help simplify and guide complex decision making by providing exposure to cutting-edge technological capabilities and to economies of scale in capital expenditures and fixed cost. We try to define the safest and most efficient workflow using our understanding of how to transform waste into energy and demonstrate this with our unique simulation tool. The result will help you to achieve maximum optimization. At the same time, we identify opportunities that will improve your cost-performance ratio.
| Simulation becomes reality
By working with Konecranes from the start of your project, we can help you to optimize your layout, throughput, and your material handling equipment. Objective of the simulation study is to assess different specifications for waste-to-energy cranes for the planned or existing waste-to energy facility simulation modeling.
Our patented simulation software tool can run simulations specific to your plant to help you to make the best decisions for your material handling needs. It provides a complete view of your operation and makes it easy for you to adopt the right strategy while you are still planning your facility. Not only will it help you to optimize your operations, its data will provide a road map to minimize the cost of your downtime and give your facility a long and productive lifecycle.
| Customer Story - Quebec, Canada
“The experience of the supplier was one of our principal requirements, reliability was another. It was very important for us that the cranes work, 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, all year long. And, it continues to be important year after year. I am happy to say that we are very satisfied with the equipment we have now.”
Yves Frechet, Principal Design Engineer at City of Quebec
