After access road and canal built, next step is to clearing the area inside the block from trees, weed, or other. Aim of this activity is to prepared area inside the block ready for planting. PT Trakindo Utama has the best option for Infrastructure Preparation through Cat Hydraulic Excavator (320D2, 313D2 LGP), and Cat Track Type Tractors / Dozer (D5R XL, D6R XL).

3. Planting
3.a. New Planting
After the land prepared as designed, further is to planting palm oil seedling. This activity can be done full manually or semi-automatic. PT Trakindo Utama has the best option for Semi-Automatic Planting through Cat Mini Hydraulic Excavator (305,5) combined with Cat Auger.

After above finished, the new planting can be done using full manually or semi-automatic. At this stage, we provide the best option for Palm Oil tree feeling and chipping through Cat Hydraulic Excavator (320D2, 313D2 LGP) attached with Chipping bucket.

4. Maintenance
The road in Palm Oil estate constructed to be the main hauling facility of harvested fresh fruit bunches (FFB). The FFB must be as soon as possible delivered to mill to be further processed. To ensure hauling can be done with fewer obstacles, the road construction must be maintained regularly.

Fresh Fruit Bunches (FFB) which accepted in mill will be sorted in loading ramp to ensure the FFB meet with quality standard. After that, by some treatment, the FFB will be screwed to extract its oil. The waste of this process or by product can be used again as biomass fuel, organic matter, or as material for different product. We have the best option for Palm Oil Mill and Waste Processing through Material Handling product through Cat Wheel Loader 924K, Cat Backhoe Loader 416F, Cat Skid Steer Loader 226B2, Cat Diesel Generator set C Series (C13, C15, dan C18), and POME utilization using Cat Gas Generator set CG Series (CG170, CG132).

6. Electricity from POME
Methane gas is the most harmful to the environment. Methane gas was produced from POME (Palm Oil Mill Effluent) by anaerobic bacteria that exist in the ponds. The bacteria will eat the pome and produced methane gas. Usually palm oil mill build many ponds for pome treatment without considering of methane gas that will expose to atmosphere and this will create global warming. But nowadays there is a technology to capture methane gas and convert it into energy through gas generator set application. Caterpillar has announced CG product (acquired MWM in 2011) for this application.CG product has three (3) model CG132, CG170 and CG260.with rating vary from 400kW until 3,370kW in biogas application. Some agriculture company has adopted and run this technology in order to get the “Green” certificate for their CPO products.
