One of South-East Asia’s leading cement manufacturers, Xuan Thanh Cement, is deploying Konecranes durable CXT lifting equipment enhanced with TRUCONNECT® remote monitoring technology to optimise the safety, efficiency and reliability of its plant in Ha Nam province 100 km south of Hanoi.
Xuan Thanh Cement recently announced plans to establish the largest cement plant in the world in the province, featuring the most energy efficient equipment, state-of the art emission control and leading process control systems in an expanded plant with a 12500 TPD production capacity.Konecranes has responded to Xuan Thanh’s expansion to meet expected growth in the Vietnamese cement market with an installation at Ha Nam of four installation and maintenance cranes of the globally proven CXT design in capacities of 6 - 35 t, backed by Konecranes local and global service and training capabilities.
The cranes – serving key production technology in installations as high as more than 45 m off the ground, or more than 12 stories high – lift tools and machinery to the top of plant including grinders and silos to help ensure uninterrupted production for Xuan Thanh in serving markets including roads, tunnels, ports and other industrial and commercial building and infrastructure.
CXT wire rope hoists are staple lifting devices used widely throughout the Asia-Pacific and globally in maintenance tasks, production lines, engineering and processing plants and industrial warehouses and factories. Their strength, compact size, speed, reliability and safety make them indispensable in production facilities where time is money and space is limited. Safety and reliability of CXT cranes can be further enhanced by TRUCONNECT® remote monitoring technology which provides self-diagnosis and usage data that enables users to optimise maintenance activities and visualise maintenance and application compliance.
Such safety and efficiency issues are particularly important in Xuan Thanh equipment accessed by the Konecranes, which provide servicing of rollers of grinders and filtration process technology and servicing of motors and gearboxes mounted atop silos used for bulk storage.
Other important factors included efficient use of space, ease of operation and provision of service backup (Konecranes is the world’s largest crane service organisation, with more than 400 000 cranes of all makes under service contract worldwide and a permanent office in Vietnam).
CXT cranes are easy to operate, while Konecranes Vietnam office provides training and backup on advanced systems such as TRUCONNECT.
Konecranes Sales Manager Vietnam Huynh Thanh says durable technologies such as CXT are vital in demanding production environments such as cement production, while technologies such as TRUCONNECT also help ensure safety and longevity.
