PT Berlian Jasa Terminal Indonesia (PT BJTI) has ordered eight Konecranes' Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes.
In the course of 2017 and at the beginning of 2018, Java-based port operator PT Berlian Jasa Terminal Indonesia (PT BJTI) will receive eight cranes, equipped with an external power supply to hook up to the terminal’s mains, thus enabling PT BJTI to take an important next step in its long-term sustainability approach.
Four of the cranes will be Model 5 two-rope cranes with a maximum lifting capacity of 125 tn and a maximum outreach of 51 m. The other four will be Model 4 two-rope cranes with a maximum lifting capacity of 100 tn and a maximum outreach of 46 m.
"Our terminal in Surabaya is an important hub for inner-Indonesian logistics. So far, we have mainly handled containers with the help of our existing eight Konecranes Gottwald Model 4 cranes. With the new machines, we will extend our handling capacity significantly, and especially the Model 5 cranes will enable us to serve larger container vessels and load and unload a wide range of heavy project and general cargo. We also intend to develop our bulk handling activities and therefore plan to use the new machines in bulk handling with motor grab," Putut Sri Muljanto, Managing Director of PT BJTI, said.
Giuseppe Di Lisa, Sales & Marketing Director at Mobile Harbor Cranes, Konecranes, said; "We are proud that our technology, which provides the highest eco-efficiency and its associated benefits, has led to this record order. The new cranes will use power from the terminal's own supply, which will help PT BJTI to increase the productivity of its operations, and to considerably reduce exhaust gas and noise emissions in the terminal."
