The Lamong Bay Terminal in Surabaya, East Java, Indonesia, was inaugurated this morning by the President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo.
It was an historic moment for Indonesia, an important milestone in the country’s transport development program that is improving the movement of goods through its vast waterways.
Lamong Bay Terminal’s automated container handling system was provided by Konecranes.
“Lamong Bay Terminal is the next generation container terminal. Thanks to the reliability, productivity, predictability and safety provided by our Konecranes automated container handling system, we will provide our shipping line customers with uninterrupted, reliable container flow. This will be the key to build up business success in Indonesia and South-East Asia,” said Mr. Prasetyadi, Project Manager, Pelindo III.
Lamong Bay Terminal’s automated container handling system incorporates a host of technological improvements including stronger redundancy throughout the design, and an improved Remote Operating Station (ROS) and Graphical User Interface (GUI).
