Remote cranes on Russian grounds
The Russian company Kyshtym Copper Electrolytic Planta, subsidiary of the Russian Copper Company, is going to install a warehouse next to the new Copper Electro Refinery. Special equipment is needed in this working place in Kyshtym in the Chelyabinsk Region, between Jekaterinburg and Tcheljabinsk.
To improve anodes and cathodes handling, the Austrian crane manufacturer Kuenz has been chosen to design and deliver automated overhead cranes including specific lifting devices and two remote operating stations.
For automated warehouse management, the crane controls will be connected to the tank house management system located in the control room. The anode handling crane will have a lifting capacity of 10 t, the cathode handling crane 3.5 t. The cranes will be delivered in Q1/2021. (mw)
