Indonesian Automation Service Contract for Konecranes
Konecranes has secured a key contract in the delivery of Automated Port Equipment services. The Kuala Tanjung Multipurpose Terminal (KTMT) recently signed a 12-month automation services contract with Konecranes Indonesia. The port has 8 Automated Konecranes RTGs. The deal was signed in July 2020 and will run until June 2021. Local inverter and digital crane specialists are using Konecranes Augmented Reality apps to liaise with Finnish engineers, ensuring updates, repairs and knowledge transfer are uninterrupted during the COVID-19 travel bans.
The KTMT Terminal is in a remote area of Northern Sumatra, with the nearest town being four hours’ drive away. Konecranes is the leader in the provision of automated port equipment, not least because it has the skills, service footprint and communication tools that looking after advanced port equipment, in any part of the world, demands.
Jukka Tukia, Konecranes APAC Port Services Director, says, “Partnerships and commitment drive our business in the Asia-Pacific region. 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.”
