Estonian wind power producer orders 17 Konecranes S-series cranes
Konecranes has won an order with Tbhawt Manufacturing in Estonia for 17 S-series overhead cranes and two CXTD wire rope hoist cranes. The order, for Konecranes’ synthetic rope crane was booked in February 2021.
Tbhawt Manufacturing produces eco-friendly and affordable products including wind turbines. Precision is critically important in the work and Tbhawt Manufacturing turned to Konecranes’ S-series cranes for their efficiency, speed, reliability and safety features. The total order of 19 cranes will be delivered in December 2021.
Tbhawt Manufacturing’s chief operating officer, Grigory Levkovets, said, “The new cranes will help us to overcome the main problems that arise in production, because thanks to the synthetic rope the S-series hoists have a smooth and load-sensitive lifting speed, which is exactly suitable for lifting parts.”
The Konecranes S-series’ synthetic rope makes it easy to carry loads and is safe to handle as it is barb free and requires no lubrication, resulting in reduced cost of maintenance for the rope drum and sheaves. Its trolley and reeving arrangement reduces wheel loads by up to 45% compared to previous hoist generations.
