Konecranes, a provider of material handling solutions, has won an order for 35 CXT overhead cranes from Chinese filter press manufacturer Jingjin Equipment Inc. to support its newly established manufacturing facility in Dezhou, China.
The cranes are comprised of 5.0-ton and 10-ton CXT single girder cranes, 30-ton CXT double girder cranes and a 5.0-ton CXT semi-gantry crane.
They will be used in the customer's new manufacturing facility for the production and assembly of plunger pumps and filter presses for sludge dewatering and wastewater treatment.
In addition to supplying the cranes, Konecranes will oversee the delivery and installation.
This order reinforces Konecranes' longstanding collaboration with Jingjin Equipment, which dates back to 2016 and has seen close to 200 overhead cranes delivered and put into service.
"We are delighted that Jingjin Equipment has once again chosen Konecranes as its trusted partner for their lifting needs. The decision to engage us underscores the confidence Jingjin Equipment has in our products and services to meet the requirements of their new manufacturing facility," says Charles Zhang, sales manager ISE Apac, Konecranes.
