Konecranes has won a contract to supply 6 Waste-to-Energy (WtE) cranes to Singapore’s Tuas Nexus – IWMF. The order, booked in August 2021, underscores Konecranes’ commitment to helping customers and industries grow and transform so they run more efficiently, sustainably, and safely.
Tuas Nexus – IWMF is Singapore’s first integrated facility to treat incinerable waste, source-segregated food waste and dewatered sludge from Tuas Water Reclamation Plant (Tuas WRP). It will also sort household recyclables collected under the National Recycling Programme (NRP). It is set to be completed in phases from 2025 onwards, and Konecranes’ cranes will be delivered in February 2023.
The contract calls for Konecranes’ MHE-Demag unit to provide cranes with a full automation package to enhance operations and reduce manpower needs. The contract was awarded to Konecranes by a Keppel-led consortium appointed by the National Environment Agency to develop the WtE facility and Materials Recovery Facility as part of IWMF Phase 1 development.
“Konecranes is the world leader in automated WtE cranes, and this contract underscores how sustainability sits at the core of our operations. We look forward to playing our part in building Tuas Nexus – IWMF and helping Singapore’s efforts to go green,” said Ryan Wang, Regional Sales Manager for MHE-Demag.
A strong focus on customers and commitment to business growth and continuous improvement make Konecranes a lifting industry leader. This is underpinned by investments in digitalization and technology, plus our work to make material flows more efficient with solutions that decarbonize the economy and advance circularity and safety.
