Kuala Tanjung gains support to become a leading port in Indonesia

2019-11-29

PT Pelabuhan Indonesia I (Persero), owner of Kuala Tanjung International Hub Port and Industrial Estate, has signed a head of agreement (HoA) with Port of Rotterdam Authority and the operator of the world's biggest cargo terminal in Ningbo, Zhejiang Provincial Seaport Investment & Operation Group, that aims to speed up the development of the port and industrial estate.


The scope of the HoA covers the development of Kuala Tanjung International Hub Port and Industrial Estate located in Indonesia's north Sumatera province, to turn it into a world class port and industrial area. The project includes the optimisation of the multipurpose terminal by offering direct shipping between Kuala Tanjung and Ningbo through the network owned by Zhejiang Provincial Seaport Investment & Operation Group.


The collaboration also involves the holding of joint workshops to develop new business plans and commercial terms by including Kuala Tanjung Multipurpose Terminal as part of the whole project.


"This cooperation is one of the steps we take to increase Kuala Tanjung capability in competing with other major ports along the Malacca Strait," said PT Pelabuhan Indonesia I (Persero) president director Dian Rachmawan at the signing ceremony that was held at the Ministry of Transportation office in Jakarta.


"With the experience owned by the largest ports in Europe and Asia in collaboration with PT Pelabuhan Indonesia I (Persero), it is expected to be able to push the port of Kuala Tanjung to become a world-class port and to encourage regional and even national economic growth," said Mr Dian.


The first phase of Kuala Tanjung port, which was completed in 2018, established a multipurpose terminal. At present the deep-sea port has a 500 x 60 metre jetty and a 2.8-kilometre trestle for four track lanes as wide as 18.5 metres.


The second phase involves the development of a 3,400-hectare industrial estate, while the third and fourth phases will focus on turning the Kuala Tanjung into a hub port.
