Konecranes Biomass Crane Helps Whistler Resort Manage Waste, Reduce Carbon Footprint
When a municipal waste composting facility outside Vancouver shut down because of odor problems, a new facility was sited in the Resort Municipality of Whistler. The process transforms a mixture of sewage solids, food waste and waste wood into high-quality compost, and replaces trucking garbage to Washington State at a significant cost. Konecranes supplied a 5-ton radio-controlled bucket crane, CMAA class “E”, operating on a 60’ span. The grab holds 2.5 cubic meters and the crane is equipped with DynAPilot antisway technology and the ability to weigh each load.
