Our goal with every RTG retrofit is to make the handling, functionality and reliability of your existing Konecranes RTGs equivalent to the latest generation of Konecranes RTGs. In principle, we can and will retrofit any existing Konecranes RTG in the field.
Our retrofit mission
Our goal with every RTG retrofit is to make the handling, functionality and reliability of your existing Konecranes RTGs equivalent to the latest generation of Konecranes RTGs. In principle, we can and will retrofit any existing Konecranes RTG in the field. At Konecranes, we constantly develop our crane technology to improve the efficiency, reliability and safety of our RTGs. As your Konecranes RTG starts to age, a retrofit will make the most of the strength and durability of its overall structure while incorporating new technology that did not exist when the RTG was originally delivered. The new technology ensures that your RTG will continue to perform at the highest level, increasing safety and operational efficiency and maintaining spare part support. New components and parts reduce the need for repairs and unscheduled maintenance, and minimize downtime. Improved efficiency lowers the cost of running the crane. A retrofit also readies
the crane for future technological developments, such as automation. Most importantly, our retrofits keep the lifecycle value of your crane high and help to further reduce the total cost of ownership over its remaining years of service.
Our retrofit philosophy
Depending on the retrofit you choose, the new components and functionality installed on your Konecranes RTG will vary considerably.
Be that as it may, all of our retrofit projects are handled as turnkey projects by default from order to hand-over. We will:
Inspect and assess the condition of the crane's relevant components before the retrofit to ensure everything is taken into account during the project
Supply design and engineering for your specific case covering the mechanical, electrical, and/or softwarerelated aspects
Update and deliver a complete set of crane documentation
Assemble and test the retrofit at our factory before packing, stowing, and shipping deliverables
Ensure that the mechanical and electrical site installation work is supervised by one of our experienced site managers
Test and commission your crane after the retrofit
Train your staff (optional)
Your Konecranes RTG retrofit will be assigned to a dedicated Konecranes product manager who will take responsibility for it. Every Konecranes RTG retrofit type has a dedicated Konecranes product manager responsible for improving the processes related to it.
