Finland : Konecranes to deliver two industrial cranes for Brazilian pulp manufacturer

Jul 11, 2018 (Euclid Infotech Ltd via COMTEX) --

Konecranes will deliver two industrial cranes with specially designed spreader clamps to CMPC Cellulose Riograndense, located in Brazil. The order was received in the second quarter of 2018.

Celulose Riograndense produces pulp from eucalyptus short fibre cellulose. In the city of Guaiba, state of Rio Grande do Sul, Celulose Riograndense has a pulp producing unit with capacity to generate 1,75 million tonnes of pulp, supplying a diversified market worldwide.

Celulose Riograndense utilizes cranes to load pulp bale units to ships at the factory landing. The new Konecranes cranes will replace existing cranes to help improve performance and reliability of the loading process. The two cranes will be designed for the load of 2 million tonnes of pulp per year.

CMPC is looking for partners who can offer cutting-edge solutions in their strategic activities. Currently, we have 90 percent of pulp production through cranes. When we choose Konecranes, we choose the safety, quality and reliability of a world leader in the field, says Mr. Roberto Hallal, Logistic Manager at Cellulose Riograndense.

The order consists of two tailor-made cranes with specially designed, adjustable spreader-clamps and specific Smart Features, including Target Positioning. The cranes are operated with cameras and sensors from a movable cabin, which help to enhance operational safety. The cranes can handle loads of up to 16 tons.

These cranes will help to improve safety and efficiency of the customers pulp bale loading process. Several semi-automation features will assist the crane operator in moving pulp fast and accurately. Crane features were selected after we had studied the customers loading process carefully. Once again, understanding the customers process was the key factor when selecting the right solution, says Arto Hujanen, Director, Paper & Forest Industry at Konecranes.

The first crane will be delivered to Celulose Riograndense in December 2018, with the second one following by April 2019.
