Konecranes wins Indonesian record order
Konecranes has increased its strategic position in Indonesia with a contract to deliver the first automated container yard for state owned terminal operator, PT Pelabuhan Indonesia III (Pelindo III).
Under the contract, Konecranes will deliver the first automated container yard in Indonesia. The value of the order, which consists of 10 ship-to-shore (STS) cranes, 20 automated stacking cranes (ASC) and five straddle carriers (SC), is undisclosed, but is thought to be more than €100m.
The order is part of the government’s plans to introduce a nationwide freight transport programme to improve the movement of goods through the country’s waterways. As part of this plan, Pelindo III will construct a new terminal called Lamong Bay terminal in Surabaya, East Java, which is planned to be operational in 2014.
Philippe Richard, country director, Indonesia, Konecranes, said: “Indonesia is the world’s largest archipelago and has fast growing provincial economies, so its ports are crucial to international, regional and domestic trade.”
Mr Prasetyadi, project manager, Pelindo III, added: “A safe and uninterrupted container flow in the terminal is our customers’ uncompromised need, just like predictable operational costs are for us. Considering these circumstances we feel confident in cooperating with Konecranes aiming to build up business success in Indonesia and more widely in South East Asia.”
Delivery of the equipment is scheduled for 2014 and 2016.
