Macgregor to supply heavy-duty cranes for ten floating crane barges21 April 2023
MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has been selected to supply heavy-duty cranes for ten floating crane barges to be built by PT Karya Teknik Utama at its shipyard in Indonesia. The barges are scheduled to be delivered from the second quarter of 2023, until the third quarter of 2024.
The orders consist of ten heavy duty cranes, some of them including a foundation and a pedestal. The cranes are designed for 1,800,000 load cycles and are equipped with a mechanical grab to ensure optimal performance and turnover. Two of the cranes will be the first electric transloading cranes, called TCE, to be produced and delivered to the customer.
PT Karya Teknik Utama has chosen MacGregor to supply the cranes thanks to its long-standing relationship over many years and the capacity and endurance of the cranes.
“MacGregor was chosen to supply the cranes based on our experience with their quality and productivity. In addition, we have a successful history of working together and would like to continue building this relationship that relies a lot on trust,” said Winarto Asnim, CEO, PT Karya Teknik Utama.
“We are excited to be the first buyer of the inaugural electric transloading crane TCE, which will be the forerunner in the transshipping industry and enables us to contribute to a more sustainable future.
We look forward to developing our business with MacGregor even further in the future.” Magnus Sjöberg, senior VP, Merchant Solutions, MacGregor, added that over the past five years his company has supplied more than ten heavy-duty cranes to PT Karya Teknik Utama to do demanding loading work on its barges.
“We are very proud that they have trusted us with these orders and we are committed to supporting Karya Teknik Utama´s business by delivering what is promised. We intend to continue building our cooperation together,” he said.
