Tanggamus to become Indonesia's 4th major maritime industrial area

Lampung's Tanggamus regency administration has commenced building the first phase of the Maritime Industrial Zone (KIM) project, slated to become one of the biggest maritime industrial areas in Southeast Asia, according to local media reports.

Located at the Batubalai Port in Rimau district, the 263-hectare first phase of the project is scheduled to be completed in two years. Work began this week with construction of the first 100-metre long dock which can handle ships between 1,500 dwt and 3,000 dwt. This is mainly to facilitate docking of vessels which are supplying materials to the project.

The maritime industrial zone will later become a ship docking centre equipped with a crude oil terminal or oil bunkering, international port, ship recycling yard, shore base, warehouses and other port facilities, the reports said.

Tanggamus will become Indonesia’s fourth major shipbuilding area after Surabaya, Cilegon and Batam. The integrated development will be built in stages, eventually covering a total area of over 1,000 hectares owned by state oil and gas company PT Pertamina.

The project was funded by the state budget with IDR9bn ($908,000) disbursed this year and IDR21bn set to be released in 2014.
