Turbine crane

Take no chances

Konecranes has supplied more than 100 large turbine hall cranes to nuclear power plants as well as hundreds of these types of cranes to non-nuclear power plants. Konecranes turbine hall cranes include many design features to improve performance such as on-board diagnostics, precise positioning and remote operator’s controls.

We also understand the importance of the bottom line so we provide one of the most weight efficient designs in the industry, which not only reduces the initial cost of the crane but also reduces the cost of the crane support structure. For those applications where the highest degree of safety is required, we offer our SUPERSAFE™ single failure proof design, which includes the most advanced safety features in the industry.
