Nine Konecranes Automated Rubber Tyre Gantry (ARTG) cranes have been supplied to Terminal Peti Kemas Semarang (TPKS) in Indonesia to boost its operational safety and efficiency and expand what is the world’s first commercially operated fleet of Konecranes ARTG cranes.

The new cranes complement an existing fleet of 11 Konecranes ARTGs, making the expanded fleet the first in the world to be operated on such a wide commercial scale. The ARTG cranes utilise a next-generation automation platform, including fully automated stacking in the yard, remote operating stations (ROSs) for truck handling and the related container yard infrastructure.

“Konecranes is constantly innovating its products to meet container terminal needs, and by choosing them to provide new ARTG cranes, we have taken our operations to the next level of safety and efficiency,” said Mr Recky Julius Uruilal, general manager at TPKS, which is the is the second-largest container terminal in the Pelindo III Group, an Indonesian State-Owned Enterprise (SOE) that manages 43 ports throughout seven provinces in Indonesia.

Multiple benefits

Jukka Tukia, Konecranes port service APAC regional director, said: “The latest Konecranes technology installed at Pelindo III provides efficiency improvements in many areas, including operational efficiency, efficiency in utilising manpower, and efficiency in maintenance and support functions through modern tools such as TRUCONNECT remote monitoring.”

Konecranes’ TRUCONNECT real-time monitoring service provides an accurate report on equipment condition, so that predictive maintenance can be optimised to suit each piece of equipment and how it is used.
