Konecranes secures automation service contract in Indonesia

Konecranes has announced a key contract in the delivery of automated port equipment services with the Kuala Tanjung Multipurpose Terminal (KTMT) in Indonesia.

The two parties signed a 12-month automation services contract in July 2020 that will run until June 2021.

The KTMT Terminal, which has eight automated Konecranes rubber tyred gantry cranes (RTGs), is located in a remote area of Northern Sumatra, Indonesia with the nearest town being four hours’ drive away.

Local inverter and digital crane specialists are using Konecranes augmented reality applications to liaise with Finnish engineers, ensuring updates, repairs and knowledge transfer are uninterrupted during the Covid-19 travel bans.

"Partnerships and commitment drive our business in the Asia-Pacific region," pointed out Jukka Tukia, Konecranes port services director, who went on to say, "We have the technology, the training and the drive to ensure that no matter where your equipment is, we will find a way to make our customer’s uptime and operational efficiency our priority."
