McLanahan to supply feeder breakers for Indonesian coal mine expansion


McLanahan Corporation says it continues its long-standing support of Indonesian coal projects after being awarded a A$4.5 million contract to supply custom-engineered feeder breakers to PT Bukit Asam for an expansion at one of its mines. PT Bukit Asam’s main sites are the Air Laya, Muara Tiga Besar North and West & Central Banko mines with a combined production of over 25 Mt.

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. The units will be manufactured in Australia at McLanahan’s Cameron Park, New South Wales facility.

“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 APAC 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,” Knowles said.
