Konecranes Thailand’s maintenance, inspection and certification services have helped safeguard the BlueScope Lysaght Factory, which is located at Kohn Kaen, the heart of Thailand’s North East. Konecranes ranges of services are available locally and globally, including South Asia and Australasia.
“We’ve been 17 years without a major accident at this plant and we intend to continue this record. Our concern for the employees at BlueScope Lysaght makes this our first centre of attention,” says Suwit Chaichumras, Maintenance Supervisor at BlueScope Lysaght Factory.
“Along with safety comes good quality and Konecranes Thailand is able to ensure this too.”
Konecranes Thailand are responsible for BlueScope Lysaght’s statutory crane inspections, the certification of their four single-girder overhead cranes and also their regular maintenance and servicing.
Chaichumuras ensures the renewal of their partnership with Konecranes as long as the crane services continue to offer safety and quality.
“Konecranes shares our concern to create a culture of safety, as well as our determination to continue our unblemished accident record. As well, it’s an advantage to us to use a provider who has an extensive branch network, including a maintenance team based right here in Khon Kaen,” says Chaichumuras.
“Their responsiveness is indicated by their willingness to be at our plant within hours if needed, rather than the next day, if they had no local branch. Their team has been known to work right through the night to fix a problem and ensure we remain operational and in production. That’s the kind of service that BlueScope Lysaght requires.”
The Konecranes maintenance services include Condition Monitoring, measuring the condition of all motors, checking the wire rope and the visual inspection of crane and wheel alignments. They also cover numerous items including cleaning of the crane, checking oil levels, measuring brake wear and changing lining when necessary.
