23rd April 2014

 

Singapore – Portek Systems & Equipment, the main engineering arm of Portek International has recently completed the relocation of a batch of fully erected ship-to-shore gantry cranes and rubber tyred gantry cranes (“RTGs”) from Busan, Korea to Laem Chabang, Thailand. The entire project from design, site execution to commissioning took approximately 100 days.

In addition to this mobilisation, Portek Systems & Equipment and PT Portek Indonesia, another subsidiary of Portek have also secured contracts awarded by Terminal Petikemas Surabaya (“TPS”) for the recovery and repair of two quay cranes involved in an accident which took place in February 2014 and the projects are expected to be completed by the end of June 2014.

PT Portek Indonesia has also been awarded a contract by a container terminal operator in Jakarta to design and modify their existing 15 units of one-over-four Mitsui RTGs to one-over-five high by increasing the height of its four main legs by 2.9m. The lifting height of these RTGs will be raised from 15.24m to 18.14m. This project will take place in Tanjung Priok, Indonesia and will be completed by the first quarter of 2015.

Tok Soon Chong, Chief Technical Officer of Portek commented, “Over the past 26 years, Portek has mobilised more than 390 cranes by sea and modified more than 250 cranes in ports all over the world. We are delighted with the confidence shown in us by our repeated customers.”
