Vahle has finished the first phase of a port electrification mega project at Tanjung Priok, Jakarta in Indonesia.

The electrification of New Priok Container Terminal One (NPCT1) started in September 2015 and up to now there are 26 container blocks installed with Vahle conductor rail to supply the new eRTG’s with power. The Germany-based company completed the electrification in cooperation with MHE Degmag.

Vahle has supplied their eRTG solution to Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding Co., (MES) so that the new RTG Cranes could be equipped with the automated telescopic arms already in Japan.

All eRTG’s will be pre-commissioned at the OEM site which makes the RTG fit for operation at the final destination in short notice. Vahle has now finished the commissioning of 12 eRTG in October and will complete the eRTG fleet with the more Cranes by end of this year.

The cranes are installed with automated telescopic arms to enter and leave the electrification infrastructure automatically, a synchroniser for seamless switching of the power supply between diesel-generator and grid to reduce fuel costs.

As well as auto-steering for fully-automated steering of the RTG and off-track protection to simplify the day-to-day business.

The terminal began its construction in 2012 and has been developed to strengthen Indonesia’s position as a maritime nation.

New Priok Container Terminal One (NPCT1) is a joint venture company owned by the four shareholders Indonesia Port Corporation (IPC), Mitsui Co. Ltd., PSA International and Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisa (NYK Line) and is the international project name for the Kalibaru Terminal.
