Engineering expertise

Published:  20 November, 2015

Konecranes says it was not just its engineering expertise that came under the spotlight recently, but also its logistical capabilities and says it all centred on the world’s leading lifting equipment manufacturer transporting an under-running double girder crane spanning 36 metres from its crane-manufacturing site in East Kilbride to Aberdeen Airport.

Once onsite, the two tonne capacity crane complete with Konecranes’ CXT electric wire hoist, was installed into a new, 21,000 sq ft hangar for Bond Offshore Helicopters. With transportation and installation taking place within just one day, the company says it was a seamless process.

With the double gantry crane and hoist now installed and commissioned, it will be used to lift and move components such as engines and gearboxes in a facility that is being deployed to service and maintain several members of the Bond Offshore Helicopter fleet.
