Konecranes receives order for three STS cranes in Indonesia

Konecranes won an order last month for three ship-to-shore cranes from PT Pelabuhan Indonesia III (Persero) in Surabaya. The cranes will be delivered to the PT Terminal Petikemas Surabaya (TPS) at the end of 2016. When those crane arrive, seven Konecranes STS cranes and 16 Konecranes RTG cranes will be in operation at TPS.

TPS has many shipping routes, and it belongs to the Pendulum of the Archipelago, a central government project that is interlinking six major Indonesian seaports to form a single main sea corridor in the country. When operational, it is projected that the Pendulum of the Archipelago will cut the cost of domestic logistics by up to half.  

The three STS cranes have a lifting capacity of 60 tons and an outreach of 46 meters. The cranes will allow TPS to handle bigger vessels after the Surabaya West Access Channel improvement is complete. 

“This order shows that Pelindo III believes in Konecranes’ technology and ability to deliver projects on time,” says Janne Eklund, Konecranes’ sales manager APAC, Port Cranes. “We are currently delivering two large Automated Stacking Crane (ASC) systems to Pelindo III, one to Lamong Bay Terminal in Surabaya with inauguration this May, and another consisting of Automated RTGs to PT Terminal Petikemas Semarang (TPKS) in Central Java.”

Husein Latief, director of t echnology, Pelindo III, said: “We are deepening our cooperation with Konecranes as our container handling equipment supplier. We continue to see advantages in doing so, including in service support for our operations.”
