Delivery concepts

After defining the right product concept for your needs, we develop and produce the delivery concept with you. Here, the most important question concerns the scope of delivery. In our terminology, we divide the scope into three levels:

1. Technology: design, components, supervision and commissioning
2. Turnkey: full design and delivery responsibility
3. Complete package: turnkey and maintenance contract

The delivery concept is an optimisation of cost, delivery time and any limitations that your crane site may have. The quality of our delivery is a Konecranes standard that we adhere to in every case.
