The new crane will be able to unload log trucks in a single bite. It has a net lift capacity of 32 tons and a radial reach of 170 ft. (52 m).
The new crane will replace existing equipment and is scheduled to start up early in 2016. In addition to unloading trucks, the circular crane will feed the logline at the required rate and assist in managing log storage on site.
Andritz will supply the equipment, engineering and on-site services.
Andritz says the CRC20 Circular Crane represents the latest on-site log handling technology. It adheres to high safety standards, is easy to maintain, is very efficient, and utilizes data acquisition systems to support logyard operations.
