MacGregor is to supply heavy-duty cranes for ten floating crane barges being built by Indonesian shipyard, PT Karya Teknik Utama.

The order comprises 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 ordered cranes will be the first electric transloading cranes of the TCE type to be produced and delivered to the customer.

In the past five years the company has supplied more than ten heavy-duty cranes to the shipyard and Winarto Asnim, chief executive of PT Karya Teknik Utama, said that MacGregor was chosen based on positive previous experience. “We have a history of successful business together and would like to continue building this relationship that weighs a lot on trust,” he said.

“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.”

The orders were booked into Cargotec’s 2022 Q3 and Q4 order intake and are scheduled for delivery between the second quarter of 2023 and the third quarter of 2024.

Cargotec has indicated it will sell MacGregor at some point in the future to focus on core elements of its business.
