East Kilbride based KONECRANES UK has been awarded the contract to supply two 100 tonne SMD cranes each with two 50 tonne hoists running at 36.5 metres span to its new Romanian shipyard project.
The cranes are fully equipped with KONECRANES DynA Invertor variable speed control systems on all motions and are radio controlled with a master slave radio control facility which enables one operator to control all 4 hoists on both cranes. There is anti-collision control between cranes and end of travel limit switches. Each hoist has control and ultimate limit switches.
All hoists feature KONECRANES ControlPro Monitoring where the unit monitors the hoist operation, providing overload detection, brake wear monitoring, and calculates the crane hoist duty allowing 100% planning of maintenance activities to suit the actual duty. The unit also stores and records the number of cycles, overload attempts and temperature trips.
They are also fitted with overload protection, thermistors, ultimate limit switches on each hoist as well as the normal operating hoist and lower limit switches, 2-step travel and traverse limit switches, along with girder and trolley platforms, festoon cables, floodlights, panel lighting and panel heating.
The order worth 1.4m Euros will be delivered in March.
