A few days ago, the telescopic marine crane PTM 1800 was officially handed over to Palfinger Marine’s new customer, Enersur S.A. The PTM 1800 will mainly be used in hosehandling applications for loading and unloading tankers, and the crane will be operated at a terminal close to the city of Ilo in the south of Peru.

Ilo is of major importance to the mining industry in the region and it is therefore essential to ensure a sustainable supply of electrical energy, Palfinger said. Enersur S.A. initially buit a 140 MW coal power plant in 2000, which is located to the south of the city and has recently concluded an expansion in the same site by adding 460 MW strategic, high-performing capacity reserve. Up to 460 MW can be fed into the Peruvian power grid as necessary from this new plant. The power plant is dual fuel capable (diesel and gas), with the diesel being supplied by large tankers berthed at a pier projecting 1.2 kms into the open sea. In order to optimize this critical procedure for unloading the diesel from the ships, Enersur S.A. will use Palfinger’s PTM 1800, which features a safe working load (SWL) of six tons at 24 meters. Shortly after the handover, the first diesel tanker docked and unloaded its cargo by using the crane.

For Enersur S.A., an important criterion in selecting the crane supplier was their concern for employee safety. For this reason, the crane is fitted with the highest level of safety features and functions and complies with the European Directive of Machinery. In keeping with this, the PTM 1800 features integrated overload protection for crane and winch, a three-layer limiting switch and the emergency cut-off system. The PTM 1800 also comes with a three-ply marine coating. This offers the crane optimum protection from corrosion, even under the most adverse of conditions. Piping, bolts and screw connections are made of stainless steel. Customers can also draw on the global service network of Palfinger Marine.

Palfinger Marine offers its customers a product range of foldable knuckle boom, stiff boom and telescopic boom cranes for the most varied of applications. A significant customer has now been won in Peru in the form of Enersur S.A.
