Power generation facility construction
Demag cranes and hoists are used in gas and steam turbine manufacturing as well as production and assembly of required parts.
Installations for electricity and heat generation
Demag cranes and components are relied upon by electricity and heat generation sites. The lifting capacity of our process cranes ensures that maintenance work can be carried out reliably on turbines and other components.
Renewable power generation
Demag products focus on the four central fields of renewable power generation: solar, wind, hydropower and biomass, forming an important link in the eco-friendly power generation process.
Solar thermal power stations
Individual solar power units within a solar thermal power station continuously align the surfaces of their modules to face the sun. Demag wheel blocks provide the necessary rotation and availability.
Wind power installations
When maintenance needs to be carried out on wind turbines, the spare parts and tools have to be lifted on the outside up to the nacelle to heights of 328 ft (100 meters) or more. For onshore and offshore installations, we offer cranes, rope and chain hoists that are specially designed to meet the needs of the wind power industry. These hoists provide fast and smooth service operations and minimize the time needed to transport materials. They help ensure that facility downtimes are minimized and efficiency is increased.
Furthermore, many companies in the wind power industry employ our technologies to manufacture their wind power installations and our mobile harbor cranes are used for handling the turbine components.
Demag automated process cranes play a key role in recovering energy from refuse-derived fuels, such as wood chips or sludge. Our cranes ensure that the material is stored and blended as required and that the furnaces are continuously supplied.
Refuse recycling installations
Refuse incineration facilities help reduce the constantly growing amounts of refuse and make a valuable contribution towards power generation. Demag crane installations are optimized to meet the requirements of the individual facility.
