Kirow is the world market leader for railway cranes and slag pot carriers.
Cranes play a central role in modern track construction, whether when converting points, in bridge building or the installation of station roofs and substations. Whenever heavy loads can be transported effectively via rail to the installation site, the Kirow crane is perfect for the job – respected as a multi-tasker thanks to its versatility in moving heavy loads. Of course, derailing incidents can also be remedied quickly and reliably. SBB, Deutsche Bahn, SNCF, Network Rail, ÖBB and many more consequently put their trust in Kirow.
The highly reliable slag transporters Slag Taurus from Kirow are indispensable workhorses in steel production. Each time a converter or electric furnace is tapped, large amounts of hot slag at about 1300 to 1400 degrees result, these having to be transported safely to the disposal site. The Kirow Slag Taurus is ideal for this task.
Its low life cycle costs – thanks to a robust design – have made it a darling among steelworks in Germany. 100% market share speaks a clear language. But it’s not only in native steel where you can find a piece of Kirow...
