Konecranes to supply 6 cranes to Singapore’s new Integrated Waste Management Facility



Konecranes has won a contract to supply six Waste-to-Energy cranes to Singapore’s Tuas Nexus - Integrated Waste Management Facility (IWMF).

Tuas Nexus - IWMF is Singapore’s first integrated facility to treat incinerable waste and source-segregated food waste and dewatered sludge from Tuas Water Reclamation Plant. It will also sort household recyclables collected under the national recycling programme. It is set to be completed in phases from 2025 onwards and the 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. It was awarded to Konecranes by a Keppel-led consortium, appointed by the National Environment Agency, to develop the waste to energy facility and materials recovery facility.

Ryan Wang, regional sales manager for MHE-Demag, said: “Konecranes is 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.”
