All of the double girder cranes will be fitted with Konecranes developed components and accessories including: girder platforms, trolley platforms, festoon cross crane cables, girder joints to allow containerised shipment, Konecranes Remox radio control with pendant backup, dual speed hoists Konecranes DynA range of inverter stepless speed control on all cross and long travel motions. Konecranes ControlPro condition monitoring system is installed on all hoists, allowing programmed maintenance to be properly scheduled to suit usage and to provide overload protection, increased safety and minimise unscheduled stoppages. TRUCONNECT Remote Monitoring and Reporting will operate providing actual crane usage data that enables visibility to crane maintenance and application compliance.
Power will be delivered by Konecranes enclosed conductor system and there will be 2 step limit switches on the cross and long travel motions. Al control panels are heated and tropicalised. The cranes will each be painted with a 2 pack Epoxy paint system giving many years of protection before 1st paint maintenance is due.
