Konecranes receives another order from Indonesia for its automated RTG system

This is Konecranes’ second order for an ARTG system from a PT Pelabuhan Indonesia I port, and will be the company’s third ARTG installation in Indonesia.

 

The 12 ARTGs will be delivered in January 2020 to Belawan Container Terminal, Phase 2 in Medan, North Sumatra. They will be identical to those already delivered to PT Prima Multi Terminal in Kuala Tanjung, Indonesia.

 

Indonesia is a strategically important country for Konecranes. The Government of Indonesia is carrying out a nationwide freight transport programme to improve the movement of goods through the country’s vast waterways as it seeks to become a global top ten economy by 2025.

“I thank PT Prima Terminal Petikemas and Pelindo I for their continuing confidence in Konecranes’ ARTG technology," said Kimmo Nyman, Sales Director, Konecranes business area Port Solutions. "The value our customers perceive in our ARTG system comes from the elimination of unintended crane movements, reduced energy consumption, reduced maintenance, and increased productivity and predictability,”

 

Jansen Sitohang, President Director of PT Prima Terminal Petikemas, said: “Pelindo I is modernising its container terminals with the latest automation technology. We are pleased with our collaboration with Konecranes, and look forward to executing this project successfully and serving our customers as efficiently as possible in the beginning of 2020.”

The new ARTG system to be delivered in January 2020 will comprise:

  • Twelve all-electric, automated Konecranes RTGs with Active Load Control (ALC) and Auto-steering
  • Four Remote Operating Stations (ROSs)
  • Truck guidance systems
  • Intelligent gates for the container stacks
  • Interfaces for miscellaneous container yard infrastructure
  • Automation software, including the interface to the Terminal Operating System (TOS)
  • Trueconnect remote service, which gives 24/7 access to Konecranes’ network of crane experts
