Pelindo III says Teluk Lamong to start operations on 1 March
Indonesian state-run port operator Pelindo III, through its subsidiary Terminal Teluk Lamong (TTL), will commence operations of Teluk Lamong Port in Gresik, East Java, next month, local media reported.

TTL operational director Agung Kresno Sarwono said the company was currently preparing a number of systems, such as the Automated Stacking Crane (ASC), to ensure the smoothing running of the terminal when it starts operations on 1 March.

“We are coordinating intensively with related parties, such as contractors and vendors to make sure we can deliver full operations when we open this international terminal,” Agung said, adding that representatives from Finland-based firm Konecranes were scheduled to visit the terminal to help TTL integrate the Terminal Operating System (TOS).

In addition, he said Teluk Lamong was the world’s first terminal to implement an automatic docking system, built through a collaboration between Pelindo III and French logistics company Gaussin Manugistique.

Teluk Lamong has a capacity of 1.6m teu and 10.3m tonnes of dry bulk. The port, which is aimed at easing operations at the country’s second-largest port ,Tanjung Perak in Surabaya, cost Pelindo III IDR3.4trn ($268.6m) in investment, which was sourced from internal cash and bank loans.
