Konecranes Mobile Harbor Cranes for Surabaya

Konecranes Mobile Harbor Cranes for Surabaya

Indonesian port operator Pelindo 3 orders five Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes for its terminal in Surabaya.

In the third quarter of 2017, PT Pelabuhan Indonesia 3 (Pelindo 3) expanded its fleet of Konecranes equipment by placing an order for three Model 4 and two Model 5 rubber-tired mobile harbor cranes for its Tanjung Perak Port to serve vessels carrying containers, general cargo or bulk as required.

Pelindo 3 successfully operates Konecranes Automated Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes 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.

Since Pelindo 3’s cargo handling business is significantly growing and its subsidiary is familiar with Konecranes Gottwald equipment, Pelindo 3 decided to purchase mobile harbor cranes for its own use at Jamrud Terminal in Tanjung Perak Port in Surabaya, East Java from Konecranes. The five new cranes are scheduled for hand-over in late summer of 2018, and will provide the versatility needed to handle different types of cargo at the terminal. 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, remarks: “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.”

Pelindo 3’s five new cranes will be fitted with state-of-the-art, eco-efficient technology. Mike Green says: “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.”

The new Konecranes Gottwald Model 5 Mobile Harbor Cranes have a lifting capacity of up to 125 t and a maximum outreach of 51 m. The new Model 4 cranes have a lifting capacity of up to 100 t and a maximum outreach of 46 m. To handle bulk cargo, the cranes will be equipped with motor grabs.
