Konecranes today signed an agreement to deliver container-handling equipment to PT Pelabuhan Indonesia III, an Indonesian state-owned terminal operator.
The order comprises 10 ship-to-shore cranes, 20 automated stacking cranes and five straddle carriers. Delivery is scheduled for 2014 and 2016. The value of the order was not disclosed, but exceeds €100 million (about US$130.2 million).
Indonesia’s government has introduced a nationwide freight transport program to improve the movement of goods through the country’s waterways. As part of this, PT Pelabuhan Indonesia III will construct a new terminal, called Lamong Bay Terminal, in Surabaya in East Java, with a planned inauguration in 2014.
