Konecranes has been awarded an agreement with GE Power to provide services covering 264 cranes and jibs that will help the global energy leader bolster operations and improve efficiency at two locations in northern France.
According to a statement, the deal includes MAINMAN Planned Maintenance, Routine Maintenance, assistance for compliance inspections and Consultation Services.
Two Konecranes technicians will be on-site at GE’s Belfort and Bourogne locations for two years, and in the upcoming weeks, Konecranes TRUCONNECT Remote Service will be activated for 14 of the cranes to help support GE’s maintenance operations and improve safety and productivity.

Jean-François Veissieres, branch manager of Konecranes North France, said: “This agreement allows Konecranes to lift GE Power’s business in France by providing Lifecycle Care in Real Time: Onsite support, proactively detecting and fixing potential issues, examining usage and maintenance data, and following all their assets through our customer portal, yourKONECRANES.
“It’s not enough to keep GE’s cranes running sufficiently; we also want to help them maximize productivity and minimize downtime during every shift, while providing a transparent view of all their crane-related events and activities.
“This agreement is a big win for our northern France branch and a testament to the Konecranes model of always improving business efficiency, safety and performance,” he added.
