Konecranes Wins Andritz Crane Order


Konecranes recently received an order for three waste-to-energy (WTE) cranes from pulp and paper system specialist Andritz Oy. The cranes ordered are two grab cranes and one turbine hall service crane.

They will be installed at the end of 2015 at the Riikinvoima waste-to-energy power plant in Leppävirta, Finland, a project supplied by Andritz.

Start-up of the new waste to energy power plant is scheduled for end-2016 and it will serve citizens in the Eastern and Middle Finland.

Konecranes will deliver two automatic grab-cranes to the WTE plant’s fuel storage, where the cranes will have hydraulic type grabs for stacking, mixing and feeding waste in the waste bunker.

Jari Myyryläinen, Head of Industry Applications at Konecranes, said: “It is the first WTE plant where Konecranes’ delivery will include [a] remote operation station (ROS) for the crane operator. This means that the crane operator will drive the crane from the control room’s screens, based on camera views without physically seeing the cranes at all.”
