McLanahan Corp continues its long-standing support of Indonesian coal projects after being awarded an A$4.5 million contract to supply custom-engineered feeder breakers to PT Bukit Asam.

The contract includes the manufacture, assembly, supply and commissioning on site for two McLanahan FB48-50-46 Dump Hopper Feeder Breakers and one RFB48-50-49 Reclaim Feeder Breaker.

“It’s a real thrill to be able to showcase our technology to one of Asia’s most trusted coal mining companies,” said Chris Knowles, director of sales and marketing at McLanahan. “As an Australian OEM, we feel that our experience in developing equipment focused on safety and ease of maintenance along with automation was a big factor in our selection. Of course, it helps to have a partnership with the industry’s best service provider, PT Suprabakti Mandiri. PT Supra offers highly trained local personnel who are able to respond immediately and meet the needs of the customer.”

“Coming off the back of the most successful year in our history, we see this new project as a great start to the new year, and confirmation that our continued investment in the region is well supported,” concluded Mr Knowles.
