The crane manages the ladle of an electric steel plant on its own. As the crane was identified to operate on its own, a great deal of emphasis was placed on availability right from the planning stage.
Alongside the crane bridges and hoist drives being grouped together, additional redundancy was also built into the components. A frequency converter and air-conditioning as built in redundancy complete the ‘availability package’.
Evaluation of the operational availability, way above 99.5%, shows that the efforts were not in vain and the operator is extremely satisfied.
