CNC Freight’s client was a awarded a contract by PT Golden Hope to supply packaged boiler for its Palm Oil Mil in Kota Baru, South Kalimantan. Services required by CNC Freight were to provide door delivery to the Palm Oil Mill. This project is interesting for us as it posed two key challenges.

First challenge we face at PT Golden Hope Jetty is the low draft clearance. In addition, we find that the berth facility is very basic. After several discussions within CNC Project Team and a site survey we believe that the landing craft transport (LCT) is most suitable to transport this lot of cargo. (The LCT was based on a design originally conceived in WWII for the onshore deployment of infantry troops.)

The 2nd challenge was the condition of the jetty. During the discharging of the packaged boiler, a 150 ton crawler crane will be deployed.

Together with our agent in Indonesia, additional sand was used to reinforce the ground at the jetty.

Additionally, careful calculation and stowage planning is done for the discharging operation because the distance between the crane and berth at PT Golden Hope’s jetty is quite far.
