Padang, 3 April 2017 - PT Trakindo Utama (Trakindo), the provider of Caterpillar heavy equipment solutions, reaffirms its commitment to support cement industry and infrastructure development in Indonesia through extending its partnership with PT Semen Padang. This sustainable partnership is marked by a recent Cat 6030 hydraulic excavator handover at PT Semen Padang’s headquarters in Padang, West Sumatera Province, from Chief Operating Officer of PT Trakindo Utama, Roni Setyawan to Production Director of PT Semen Padang, Indrieffouny Indra.

Roni Setyawan, Chief Operating Officer of PT Trakindo Utama, said, “Infrastructure development in Indonesia continues to progress and requires sufficient supply of cement. Therefore, we fully understand cement industry’s needs and are committed to providing reliable, latest solutions to support Indonesian development. Cat 6030 hydraulic excavator is the answer to the needs for 300 tons large hydraulic excavator with ample benefits for cement industry’s greater productivity.”

Cat 6030 is one of the latest generations of large hydraulic mining excavator designed for increased productivity and operator’s advanced comfort. Much like its predecessor, Cat 6030 has standard bucket sizes available in front shovel (16.5 m3), backhoe (17.0 m3), and backhoe (18.0 m3) for 1.6 – 1.7 density. The hydraulic excavator has twin engines that enables the unit continues to perform and achieves production with the use of a single engine. The twin engines concept has proved to offer 12% more efficient fuel consumption. Cat 6030 has 14% lower life cycle costs compared to similar products. In addition, Cat 6030 can still achieve up to 65% of full production with the use of a single engine. This product is also equipped with more efficient independent oil cooling system, and that means optimum oil temperature is being maintained.

“We have a long history of well maintained partnership with PT Semen Padang, and there are currently more than 20 units of Cat products in operations here. Cat 6030 hydraulic excavator is expected to support higher productivity with faster cycle times and improved energy efficiency. The hydraulic excavator unit is for loading and unloading raw materials (stones) to articulated dump trucks before the stones are processed into cement. In terms of spare parts, we also provide easy maintenance and repair, allowing increased time and costs efficiency,” Roni added.

Cat 6030 also facilitates exceptional accessibility to maintaining and repairing its vital components, allowing faster and easier product maintenance and results in longer lasting product. Furthermore, the hydraulic excavator is designed with safety as top priority with advanced safety features, among others main ladder and emergency access as well as easily accessible and secure switches.

Moreover, Cat 6030’s superiority includes efficient control platform and monitoring systems. Safety and comfort features together with user-friendly operating features are incorporated into its operator cabin. Cat 6030 boasts robust durable structures and powerful engine designed to withstand extreme mining conditions and at the same time offers enhanced mobility and flexibility.
