Konecranes iforms it has received a repeat order for an automated RTG (ARTG) system from PT Pelabuhan Indonesia III (Pelindo III) in Indonesia.

The system includes nine automated RTG cranes. It will be delivered to Terminal Petikemas Semarang (TPKS), an operational terminal in Central Java, at the end of 2016. The order is part of the second-quarter order intake.

“Konecranes delivered the cranes and the complete automation system to Indonesia’s first automated terminal, which was recently opened. The proof from this green field terminal in Lamong Bay, Surabaya, has convinced Pelindo III to proceed with the next phase of TPKS, converting half of the existing manual RTG yard into an automated system with personnel access and horizontal traffic control. Pelindo III appreciates production stability, increased safety, greater productivity and better predictability – all characteristics associated with Konecranes automation,” says Janne Eklund, Konecranes’ Sales Manager, Port Cranes.

The ordered ARTG system utilizes a next generation automation platform, including fully automated stacking, Remote Operating Stations (ROSs) for truck handling and the related container yard infrastructure. After the delivery of this order TPKS will have a total of 20 cabin-less Konecranes ARTGs operating in 10 automated blocks.

“Konecranes’ automation system is easy to operate and maintain, even the calibration process has been thoroughly redefined. Remote operator ergonomics is beyond comparison, thanks to Konecranes’ informative-rich graphical user interface,” highlights Robby Dayoh, Senior Manager, Pelindo III.

Pelindo III’s automated terminal in Lamong Bay, Surabaya, was inaugurated in May 2015. The terminal will have a total of 20 Automated Stacking Cranes (ASCs), 10 Ship-to-Shore (STS) cranes and five Straddle Carriers all from Konecranes.
