Konecranes best for oil and gas spe­cial­ists

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - NEWS -

Lead­ing global oil

and gas spe­cial­ists, IOT Group Aus­tralia (IOT) has com­mis­sioned four new Konecranes 10T CXT cranes to op­ti­mise ef­fi­ciency and re­li­a­bil­ity in their new state- of-the-art fa­cil­ity in Jan­dakot, Western Aus­tralia.

Konecranes was in­volved in the en­tire process, from de­sign and prod­uct se­lec­tion, to in­stal­la­tion and com­mis­sion­ing – and IOT Dis­trict Man­ager, Aus­tralia and New Zealand, Neil Kil­loh was im­pressed with the con­sis­tently high lev­els of cus­tomer ser­vice.

“From early 2015, Konecranes was ac­tively in­volved with the prod­uct se­lec­tion, fea­si­bil­ity and ef­fec­tive­ness of our over­head crane re­quire­ments for our new build fa­cil­ity,” he said.

“Reg­u­lar meet­ings as­sisted with the tech­ni­cal and com­mer­cial as­pects of the project, of which Konecranes, and es­pe­cially Andy Gar­bett, West Dis­trict Sales Man­ager, pro­vided a high level of cus­tomer ser­vice, knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence,” said Kil­loh.

CXT cranes, with in­di­vid­ual hoist ca­pac­i­ties up to 80 tons – and com­ple­men­tary CXT wire rope hoists – are de­signed to be in­dus­try bench­marks of safety and er­gonomics, with easy and ef­fec­tive load han­dling and op­ti­mum di­men­sions for space sav­ing so­lu­tions. IOT Group will pre­dom­i­nantly be us­ing the cranes for the assem­bly, dis­as­sem­bly and main­te­nance of down­hole tools, tubu­lar and cas­ing run­ning equip­ment and com­ple­tions of sub-assem­bly ser­vices for the oil and gas in­dus­try.

“All as­pects of the de­sign, or­der­ing, man­u­fac­ture, assem­bly, in­stal­la­tion, com­mis­sion­ing and cer­ti­fi­ca­tion were ex­em­plary, with no in­ci­dents, in­juries or non-pro­duc­tive time oc­cur­ring dur­ing the 12-month project, up to com­ple­tion in mid-2016. I would cer­tainly rec­om­mend Konecranes for any project,” said Kil­loh.

CXT cranes were an ideal fit for IOT Group, says Gar­bett. “IOT is an in­ter­na­tional ser­vice or­gan­i­sa­tion within the oil and gas in­dus­try, with world­wide lo­ca­tions in the most im­por­tant oil and gas lo­gis­tics hubs. Crane avail­abil­ity in their work­shop is crit­i­cal to en­sure they are

able to meet the quick turn­around times that the oil and gas in­dus­try de­mands,” he said.

“We also won the main­te­nance con­tract for all the cranes, which fur­ther demon­strates the trust IOT Group place on Konecranes, as the world’s largest crane ser­vice or­gan­i­sa­tion, to pro­vide ser­vice and main­te­nance to world class stan­dards.”

“Our cranes will help Mr Kil­loh work to his com­pany’s strong ethos of ser­vice and ef­fi­ciency and it is sat­is­fy­ing to hear such pos­i­tive feed­back on this project, which show­cases the level of cus­tomer ser­vice we strive to of­fer to all our cus­tomers,” said Gar­bett.
