Konecranes wins society award
Hyvinkää, Finland

Konecranes has won the Automation Award 2015 presented by the Finnish Society of Automation. The award was given for the development of new, harmonised automation architecture for lifting equipment in the Industrial Internet era.
The award-winning automation architecture can be applied in a wide range of lifting equipment and for different customer needs. Thanks to the standardised architecture, Konecranes says, the automation, remote service and user interface solutions are scalable and thus suitable for everything from small industrial cranes to heavy, demanding process cranes. The team that worked on the award-winning architecture consists of Tuomo Härkönen, Jari Tiittanen, Jari Pehkonen and Ville Saarela.
This is the 13th time that the Finnish Society of Automation has presented the Automation Award.

UKWA Multimodal Challenge
London, United Kingdom

Multimodal 2015 expo visitors are invited to take part in the United Kingdom Warehousing Association (UKWA) Multimodal Challenge by playing a specially adapted 'speed version' of the educational board game, Business on the Move.
The game's aim is to maximise the value of deliveries by air, land and sea. Playing against the clock, participants have to balance delivering lucrative long-distance orders with smaller but quicker deliveries nearer to base.
There will be 30 games played over the course of the exhibition. A daily leader board will record the best scores, with the overall winner being invited to the UKWA Annual Awards and Luncheon at The Dorchester Hotel, London in July to receive the winner's trophy from former British trade minister Lord Digby Jones.
Sixty places are open to UKWA Multimodal Challenge members and the closing date for entries is April 17. To enter, please email info@ukwa.org.uk. The Multimodal 2015 exhibition will be held at the NEC, Birmingham on 28-30 April 2015.
