Kalmar has been awarded a ship-to-shore (STS) crane refurbishment project by the Belawan International Container Terminal (BICT) in Medan, Indonesia.
BICT is managed by Pelindo I, one of four state owned Indonesian terminal operators. The terminal, located on the island of Java, serves the Straits of Malacca, the busiest shipping lane in the world.
The project involves the refurbishment of a Nelcon STS crane, with scope to include the replacement of the electrical control system (PLC and DC drives), main dynamic brakes, wire ropes, spreader pulley sheaves and headblock. The company will also carry out repair works on the DC motors and festoon system.
