Konecranes Snatches Two Port Crane Contracts
A Finnish manufacturer of cranes and lifting equipment Konecranes received orders from Indonesia’s port operator PT Pelabuhan Indonesia III (Persero) and the Canadian operator GCT Canada Limited Partnership for three Ship-to-Shore (STS) and four Rubber Tired Gantry (RTG) cranes, respectively.
The STS cranes will be delivered to the PT Terminal Petikemas Surabaya (TPS) at the end of 2016. When the cranes are in operation, a total of 7 Konecranes STS cranes and 16 Konecranes RTG cranes will be in operation at TPS.
The three STS cranes on order have a lifting capacity of 60 tons and an outreach of 46 meters. The cranes will allow TPS to handle bigger vessels after the Surabaya West Access Channel improvement is complete.
GCT Canada ordered the four RTG cranes for its GCT Deltaport facility located in Port Metro Vancouver, marking Konecranes’ first RTG delivery to the West Coast of Canada. The cranes will be delivered fully-erect in the spring of 2016.
The CSA-approved, hydraulics-free Konecranes RTGs on order are 16-wheel machines with a lifting capacity of 40 LT, lifting 1-over-5 high and 7-plus-truck lane wide.
