BP Oil Castell has ordered one 17t coker crane. The success of the coker crane is measured by the reliability and low maintenance. The crane, which spans 33m, will be supplied as part of the Castellon Delayed Coker Project. This is the first delivery of a Konecranes coker crane in Europe.

Tesoro Corporation selected Konecranes for the delivery of one coker crane for the delayed coking process at the Golden Eagle Refinery in Martinez, California. The crane has a 44t lifting capacity, spans 43m and features a number of load control technologies developed by Konecranes. The specifications for the crane have been developed by ConocoPhillips. The crane will be manufactured in Konecranes’ Houston, Texas plant.

The Power Generation Group of Siemens AG turned to Konecranes for the supply of two turbine house cranes. The cranes are rated for a 250t duty, have a span of 32m and are equipped with a 25t auxiliary trolley. The contract also includes the delivery of two maintenance cranes. The cranes will be installed at the company’s new combined cycle power plant in Irsching, Germany. The order is part of a greater investment, which will make Irsching the home of the world’s largest and highest output gas turbine.

Commenting on the orders, Kari Wallgren, director process cranes said: “The activity in our process cranes business continues to grow and we are happy to be able to meet the demand of our customers’ search for greater cost efficiencies.”
