Indonesian port operator PT Pelabuhan Indonesia 3 (Pelindo 3) has ordered five new Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbour Cranes for its terminal at Surabaya in East Java, Indonesia.
Konecranes will deliver the three Model 4 and two Model 5 rubber-tired mobile harbour cranes to Pelindo 3’s Tanjung Perak Port in the late summer of 2018.
The cranes will serve vessels carrying containers, general cargo or bulk.
Konecranes Gottwald Model 5 Mobile Harbor Cranes and have a lifting capacity of up to 125 tons and a maximum outreach of 51 metres.
The new Model 4 cranes have a lifting capacity of up to 100 tons and a maximum outreach of 46 metres.
To handle bulk cargo, the cranes will be equipped with motor grabs.
Pelindo 3 already uses Konecranes machinery across its ports in Indonesia.
Konecranes Automated Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes operate at its Semarang container terminal.
It also operates a large Konecranes Automated RMG system, along with many Konecranes STS cranes, at its Lamong Bay Terminal in Surabaya.
Pelindo 3 subsidiary PT Berlian Jasa Terminal Indonesia (PT BJTI) has Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes at terminals in Surabaya and placed an order for eight Konecranes Gottwald cranes earlier this year.
It has also decided to purchase mobile harbor cranes for its own use at Jamrud Terminal in Tanjung Perak Port in Surabaya, East Java from Konecranes.
Indonesia’s dispersed archipelagic form means that Pelindo 3’s terminals play a major role in the country’s national and international logistics.
Mike Green, Regional Director APAC, Konecranes Port Solutions, said: “We are very pleased that Pelindo 3 sees Konecranes technology as the backbone of their diversified fleet of cargo handling equipment.
“Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes, operated throughout Indonesia, have shown excellent productivity and reliability.
“With an external power feed to hook them up to the terminal’s grid, these electrically powered cranes will help the customer to reduce costs and its carbon footprint significantly in the long term.”
