Kalmar, part of Cargotec, offers the widest range of cargo handling solutions and services to ports, terminals, distribution centres and to heavy industry. They are the industry forerunner in terminal automation and when Kalmar decided to move forward with the design of their automatic stacking cranes they chose Etteplan. The co-operation in Technical calculation area of engineering started in 2011.
Engineers often face situations, where they need better understanding on the performance of the product in certain conditions. For instance, how the fluid flows in geometrical complex structures or how heat conducts through different materials. A ship builder may be interested in simulating how the wavers hit the ship hull.
Etteplan's engineering unit in Kouvola, Finland, has been doing energy analysis already for two decades. It all started with pulp and paper mills but now energy analysis are done also for saw mills, food production facilities, recycling industry - basically all kinds of production units.
