Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding Co. is planning to open its first overseas gantry crane plant in Indonesia, betting on growing demand for cargo-handling equipment on the back of seaport development in emerging countries.

PT. MES Machinery Indonesia, a joint venture set up by Mitsui Engineering and its wholly owned subsidiary in Singapore, is located in a free trade zone on Batam Island, just south of the city-state. It is scheduled to begin producing two types of gantry cranes in January for dockside and container yard installation.
