New Konecranes overhead cranes designed to be benchmarks of safety and ergonomics are being deployed by leading civil contractor Ertech in their recently completed equipment maintenance facility that will service about 170 items of major plant, including scrapers, excavators, loaders and bulldozers.
The 5-tonne and 10-tonne cranes have been installed at Ertech’s headquarters in Wangara, Western Australia, on the northern outskirts of Perth. Ertech has also signed a maintenance agreement with Konecranes to service the cranes and undertake statutory inspections.
Ertech,a civil contractor with operations in Western Australia, Victoria and South Australia, employs 800 people. The company undertakes a diverse range of projects that include earthworks, pipelines, roads, treatment plants, accommodation villages, jetties, airstrips, and dams, for private and public blue chip clients in the resources, infrastructure and land development sectors, including Chevron Australia, BHP Billiton and Landcorp.
“We chose Konecranes for our new maintenance workshop because we knew the product and liked what Konecranes had to offer us. We’re so far very happy with the cranes,” said Ertech Plant Manager Liam Keegan.
