Genova, January 8, 2004 - Techint Technologies (Italy) and Black & Veatch (USA) came to an agreement for the resumption of the contract for the supply of two 1500 tph capacity grab ship unloaders and two 1500 tph stacker reclaimers for the Tanjung Jati B Coal Fired Power Plant, located near Jepara in Indonesia.

The two ship unloaders have an outreach of 35 m, a rope load of 30 t and can unload ships up to 70.000 DWT. The stacker/reclaimers have a boom length of 40 m, a stacking capacity of 1.500 tph and a reclaim capacity of 1.000 tph.

The contract signed in 1997 was frozen one year later due to the Indonesian financial crisis and most of the already manufactured components were kept in a special warehouse in Italy. Techint Technologies machines are now ready for shipment and their start-up is scheduled for middle 2004.
