Indonesian President Joko Widodo has inaugurated Lamong Bay Terminal in Surabaya, East Java, as part of the the country’s transport development programme.

Owned by terminal operator PT Pelabuhan Indonesia III, Lamong Bay features an automated container-handling system provided by Konecranes.

The container-handling system comprises 20 automated stacking cranes (ASCs), remote operating stations (ROSs), and associated container yard infrastructure.

The Finnish crane and lifting equipment provider also delivered ten ship-to-shore (STS) cranes and five straddle carriers for the bay, along with on-site engineering support.

Pelindo III project manager Prasetyadi said: "Lamong Bay Terminal is the next-generation container terminal.

"We will provide our shipping line customers with uninterrupted, reliable container flow."

"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."

The terminal’s automated container-handling system features technological improvements, including stronger redundancy throughout the design, an enhanced ROS, and graphical user interface (GUI).

In addition, Konecranes’ unique active load control technology has now been upgraded with advanced machine vision system. It is capable of detecting containers and container profiles with high levels of precision.

Konecranes carried out design and construction of the automated system, from the active load control system of the ASCs that eliminate container sway, to the automation technology and software.
