Estimated Emissions From Diesel Generators Of Containercranes At Makassar Container Terminal
Makassar Container Terminal (TPM) is the development of Makassar Port that located on Sulawesi Corridor and is
one of the international port in Indonesia that are growing enormously. As the largest port in eastern region of Indonesia,
Makassar Port plays a major role in the distributions of goods, especially those packed in containers. The vast development and
growing activities in the port, however, has resulted in negative impacts, that is, increasing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
One of the major consumers is diesel generators for supplying electricity needs including the operations of loading and
unloading including container cranes at the Makassar Container Terminal. Air emissions from diesel generators operated for
container cranes have the effect of damaging air quality that causes negative impacts on communities around the harbor. GHG
emissions were calculated using the simplest and most accurate methodology is to record energy use and employ standard
emission factors to convert energy values into gases emissions. The method was based on activity and emission factors. Total
volume of fuel consumed for the operation of diesel engines as the prime mover of generator for supplying power for 7 units of
container cranes operated at the Makassar Container Terminal on 2013 was 1,312,070 liter with a total productivity of
15,542.80 hours, which caused emission impacts of 3,516,151 kg of CO2 ; 55,979 kg of NOX ; 14,106 kg of CO ; 4,735 kg of
HC ; and 13,011 kg of SO2 gas emission. Emission quantity refers to the engine power and energy used.
