Automated Overhead Cranes

The automatic bridge cranes equipped with grabs control the movement of the material within the treatment building. These are controlled using state of the art systems ensuring rapid response and accurate movement.


  • The bridge cranes are at the heart of the plant as a consequence particular emphasis is placed on ensuring that the mechanical, electronic and electrical details are robust so as to guarantee their operation 24 hours a day in an environment with an extreme microclimate (dust, temperature and humidity).
  • The development of the software controlling the system, the selection of the hardware and the optimisation of the mechanical operation constitute an important and unique element in the efficient operation of Entsorga's technologies. 
  • The Entsorga automated cranes developed for waste handling are also a very powerful tool to deal with large amounts of bulk materials, delivering low handling cost due to automation and making it possible to considerably reduce the storage footprint.
