Konecranes to deliver its final cranes to Russia

Konecranes has now started to deliver its final crane order to Russia. The order of cranes for a Waste-to-Energy recycling site outside Moscow was placed in 2019 by a European company and subsequently delayed by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

According to Konecranes, after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2022, the company said it would stop taking new orders from Russia. "Once this order has been delivered, Konecranes will have no further outstanding orders to Russia," stated the port equipment manufacturer.

Konecranes wrote off the order in 2022, and this is the only write-off the company will deliver to Russia, according to an announcement.

"The delivery does not infringe on European Union sanctions against Russia," said Konecranes in a statement.
