Konecranes has signed an agreement to deliver an Automated RTG (ARTG) system to Indonesian state-owned terminal operator PT Pelabuhan Indonesia III (Persero), (“Pelindo III”).
This will be the world’s first commercially operational Automated RTG system. The order comprises 11 ARTG cranes, remote operating stations and container yard automation infrastructure such as intelligent container stack gates. Delivery is scheduled for 2015.
The government of Indonesia is building a nationwide freight transport system to improve the movement of goods through the country’s vast waterways. As part of this program, Pelindo III will extend its Terminal Petikemas Semarang (TPKS) in Semarang, Central Java.
