Konecranes has won its biggest order thus far for Konecranes Gottwald Mobile Harbor Cranes in the Asia-Pacific region.
Konecranes signs big numbers in Indonesia
The eight new cranes will be added to the existing fleet of eight Konecranes Gottwald machines at the Java-based port operator PT Berlian Jasa Terminal Indonesia (PT BJTI). The machines will be delivered in the course of this year and the beginning of 2018.
With the new cranes, PT BJTI will diversify its offering and strengthen its position in the local market. The port operator can extend its handling capacity significantly, as well as develop its bulk handling activities.
“We are proud that our technology, which provides the highest eco-efficiency and its associated benefits, has led to this record order,” says Giuseppe Di Lisa, Konecranes’ sales and marketing director in mobile harbour cranes. “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.”
