Waste to energy and biomass cranes
Konecranes serves the renewable energy industry with a lineup of cranes designed to perform safely, efficiently and reliably. We understand the harsh environment of waste-to-energy and biomass plants, so we engineer our lifting and control equipment to endure humidity, dust and temperature variations.
Waste Handling Cranes
Cranes play a crucial role in modern incineration plants. It is important that the material handling system, from the arrival of the waste to incineration, is maintained continuously.
Slag Handling Cranes
A dusty and humid environment is very demanding for cranes, so durability and reliability are required for transporting slag. A Konecranes slag handling crane is designed to distribute slag under a conveyor line to other areas in a slag bunker around the clock.
Sludge Handling Cranes
A sludge handling crane must be designed to transport sticky, semi-fluid material safely and with sufficient speed. This requires the right crane with the right features.
Biomass Handling Cranes
Many biomass energy plants today use cranes, instead of front-end loaders or conveyors. Cranes provide many advantages, including a reduction in facility diesel fumes and optimisation of your available floor space.
Strawbale Handling Cranes
Automated strawbale handling cranes are used to unload straw bales from trucks.
Turbine Room Maintenance Cranes
The turbine hall crane helps you manipulate your steam turbines as required.
Konecranes fork lift trucks and reach stackers can handle waste and biomass shipping containers.
