Konecranes wins first CXT Explorer order from Dubai

DUBAI, February 8, 2018

Konecranes, a world-leading group of lifting businesses, said it has won the first CXT Explorer order from Johnson Arabia in Dubai, UAE. The order includes one CXT Explorer unit with two containers.

Johnson Arabia is a mobile crane hire company based in the UAE which offers cost-efficient and versatile lift engineering solutions to several different industries like petrochemical, civil engineering, construction, industrial and aviation.

The unit will be delivered in the beginning of 2018. The parties have agreed not to disclose the value of the order.

“We are delighted to receive the first CXT Explorer order from Johnson Arabia,” remarked Ajit Kumar, the sales director, Industrial Cranes, Konecranes Middle East.

“The CXT Explorer is our latest product category, which brings the quality and safety of lifting from the factory building to remote site conditions,” noted Kumar.

The core of the CXT Explorer is its patented design: it can be assembled, ready to lift, in just a few hours.
With a lifting height of 5 m and a span of 5 m, there is plenty of room for most field lifting needs.

Johnson Arabia will use CXT Explorer on major sites as a mobile workshop where it deploys large numbers of cranes and aerial work platforms (AWPs) to assist in quick turnaround repairs that in the past could have meant the equipment being removed from site and being returned to main yards.

Johnson Arabia, which is renting mobile cranes and aerial work platforms, was looking for a temporary but reliable lifting solution, said Kumar.

It also considered the option to install an overhead travelling crane or a jib crane for the maintenance purposes, but chose the CXT Explorer, as it is strong, yet movable.

Johnson Arabia's management stated that they believe that this option will give them advantages to optimise uptime of the equipment that will in turn give greater customer satisfaction.-TradeArabia News Service
