Hirschmann MCS Moves the Russian Crane Market
Hirschmann Mobile Machine Control Solutions (MCS) would like to offer its overload protection devices for
Russian portal and gantry cranes. The company is therefore applying for certification from the federal
environmental, industrial and nuclear supervisory service known as ROSTECHNADSOR. It already received
approval at the beginning of the year for using its safe load indicators in Russian boom-type cranes.
products and services to Russian customers. Before a crane safety system may be used in Russia, however, it must first receive official state approval from ROSTECHNADSOR. The procedure is very time-consuming, complicated, and expensive — and many companies fail to overcome this obstacle.
With the assistance of a Moscow-based certification specialist, Hirschmann MCS has submitted all of the
required documents. A prototype of the system is now being examined and evaluated by a ROSTECHNADSOR expert. Once the certificate has been issued, it will remain valid for five years.
Because Hirschmann developed the iSCALE Control System to comply with its own rigorous standards of
quality, the company is very confident that it will soon also be in a position to equip portal and gantry
cranes in Russia with optimal safety systems.
