Major Assessment

How much life is left in your crane?

A major assessment is an engineering assessment that studies the current condition of your crane and provides a theoretical estimate of its remaining design life. It has been designed to satisfy the requirements of AS2550.1 2011 Section 9's Major Assessment. The study looks at structures, mechanical components and electrical systems, and highlights possible maintenance and modernisation needs.


All cranes have a finite service life

You may choose a Major Assessment when you’re not sure if your cranes are capable of meeting growing production demands, or if you’re using your crane for purposes other than the originally classified purpose. If you have safety issues or aren’t sure if it’s time to modernise, a Major Assessment can give you the information you need.


The Major Assessment Process

  • A team of Konecranes specialists observes the production and operating environment of your crane
  • The overall condition of your crane structures and components is evaluated in detail with a focus on safety, productivity, reliability, usability and remaining design life
  • Operators and maintenance personnel are interviewed and all pertinent documentation is reviewed
  • The team provides a detailed report and further consultation with advice on maintenance, modernisations and future investments
