Geotronix and Trimble’s Civil Infrastructure Solutions Division launched a dealership cooperation at a Trimble Day in Pelindo Place (30/8). Under the theme ‘Trimble Marine Construction for Positioning’, Trimble Day was held in Surabaya, the epicenter of marine construction in Indonesia. Several marine contractors and stakeholders attended the event and discussed ongoing marine construction operations and how technology can improve safety, productivity, and resource efficiency.
Asia Pacific Senior Director of Sales and Distribution of Trimble Civil Infrastructure Solutions Division (CIS), Troy Rigby, together with CEO of Geotronix, Fajar Setio Adi, introduced Trimble Marine Construction (TMC), a system configuration consisting of GNSS receiver, signal correction, radio, Inertial measurement unit (IMU), antennas, tablets, computers, and software aimed in optimizing the productivity and efficiency of dredging operations, marine construction, as well as hydrographic surveys.
At the event, Troy Rigby, and Regional Sales Manager of Trimble CIS in Indonesia, Henra Sastrawan, delivered an overview of Trimble’s solutions as a game-changer for marine construction. The opening session was then followed by an informal networking event where the audience shared their challenges mostly in dredging operations and discussed with Geotronix and Trimble team about how Trimble Marine Construction (TMC) can solve their problems.
“I used to work for a state-owned dredging company in Abu Dhabi 12 years ago. The project was to build four industrial islands to enhance oil productivity, and we had to get it finished quickly. The project greatly benefited from the application of machine control system technology like TMC”, said Fajar. By utilizing TMC, marine contractors can enhance their productivity between 10% to 50%, depending on the application.
Trimble appointed Geotronix as an Authorized distributor in June 2023 for CIS products ranging from sensors, hardware, to software specific for the construction industry in general. Considering the company’s prominent foundation in marine survey and construction in the past 9 years of its establishment, Trimble trusts Geotronix for penetrating Indonesia’s market especially for marine construction solutions. “Geotronix has a very good reputation in the market for working with port authorities and various marine stakeholders for many years. They have the capability, credibility, and the experienced personnel to make it easier to apply technology. Technology can be complicated sometimes, but if you’re working with the right partner it’s going to make it easier to implement”, said Troy.
“By partnering with Trimble, Geotronix will be able to provide a more comprehensive solution for our valuable customers in the Indonesian marine construction industry . Trimble’s marine construction technology can improve operational safety, productivity, and efficiency. As we can see from today’s event, the audiences are very positive that they can really benefit from what Trimble offers to optimize their projects and operations”, added Fajar.
