Java-based port operator PT Berlian Jasa Terminal Indonesia (PT BJTI) is doubling its existing fleet of eight Konecranes Gottwald Cranes.

Once delivery is completed, the terminal will operate the biggest fleet of Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes in the Asia-Pacific region.

The new cranes will also improve PT BJTIs long-term sustainability through an external power supply feature that allows the machines to hook up to the terminal’s mains and considerably reduce current exhaust gas and noise emissions.

Four of the cranes will be Model 5 two-rope cranes with a maximum lifting capacity of 125 tons and a maximum outreach of 51 metres.

The other four will be Model 4 two-rope cranes with a maximum lifting capacity of 100 tons and a maximum outreach of 46 metres.

Putut Sri Muljanto, Managing Director, PT BJTI, said: “Our terminal in Surabaya is an important hub for inner-Indonesian logistics.

“So far, we have mainly handled containers with the help of our existing eight Konecranes Gottwald Model 4 cranes.

“With the new machines, we will extend our handling capacity significantly, and especially the Model 5 cranes will enable us to serve larger container vessels and load and unload a wide range of heavy project and general cargo.

“We also intend to develop our bulk handling activities and therefore plan to use the new machines in bulk handling with motor grab.”

Konecranes recently made another deal with Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) for 25 Konecranes Gottwald Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) with lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery drives.
