Recently, a 4000TPH Genma shiploader was delivered to Indonesia's largest coal terminal, Balikpapan Coal Terminal (BCT).
This is the 3rd unit Genma material handling equipment sold to Indonesia. Besides this machine, the equipment provider has sold one-unit grab ship unloader and one-unit continuous ship unloader (bucket-chain type) to this country.
Balikpapan Coal Terminal (BCT) is the largest coal terminal in Indonesia. Located in Balikpapan, East Kalimantan. BCT is managed by PT Dermaga Perkasa Pratama, the subsidiary of PT Bayan Resources Tbk.
BCT has a handling throughput capacity of 15.0 million tons per annum and a stockpiling capacity of approximately one million tons across 16 stockpiles. BCT also has a loading facility with a capacity of 4,000 tons per hour, enabling it to load a Panamax size vessel in one day. Other than that, BCT also has an unloading facility with a 5,000 tons per hour capacity and is able to unload coal from two barges simultaneously. As such, a shiploader was required to satisfy the increasing loading demand.
