Mobile workshop in the middle of nowhere

OUTSIDE WORKSHOP The CXT Explorer converts into a fully equipped workshop that can be set up in remote areas

One of the most innovative products to come from Konecranes recently is the CXT Explorer. It is a combination of a 6.3-t mobile crane, supported by two sturdy containers, which make for a fully equipped workshop that can literally be set up in the middle of nowhere.

The CXT Explorer comes as a predesigned package in a standard 20 ft ISO shipping container, with a carefully-selected range of standard functions and optional extras. These include a full CXT electric overhead crane of about 1 250 kg, supported by the two containers and an electric or manual hoist.

The shipping containers double as storage for the crane components, service tools, equipment and spare parts.

The CXT Explorer is easily transported together with another ISO shipping container. Once the containers are put on the ground, the supporting steel structure is built on top and secured with twist locks. It can be plugged into the grid or a generator. The end result is factory level lifting within a few hours of arriving on site.

To relocate the crane, it is packed into the container and ready to go.

The CXT Explorer can be used in construction, mining, vehicle maintenance, agriculture, natural gas compressor stations, in the military, oil exploration, onshore and offshore drilling.
