Finnish crane manufacturing company Konecranes earlier this month has signed an agreement to deliver container handling equipment to Indonesian state-owned terminal operator Pelindo III.
The order comprises 10 Ship-to-Shore (STS) cranes, 20 Automated Stacking Cranes (ASC) and 5 Straddle Carriers (SC). Delivery is scheduled for 2014 and 2016. The value of the order is not disclosed, but is more than EUR 100 million.
The government of Indonesia has introduced a nationwide freight transport program to improve the movement of goods through the country’s vast waterways. As part of this program Pelindo III will construct a new terminal called Lamong Bay Terminal in Surabaya, East Java, with a planned inauguration in 2014.
