Indonesia's scrapped Cilimaya port project may see new tender soon

Indonesia's scrapped Cilimaya port project may see new tender soon
Indonesia's Transportation Ministry’s director general for sea transportation, Bobby Mamahit, said the Ministry might announce a date soon for the tender of the controversial new deep-sea port project to replace the scrapped Cilamaya port project in West Java, local media reported.

“Based on our schedule, the tender should be held in January or February, but we’ll wait for him [Transportation Minister Ignasius Jonan],” he was quoted as saying.

The government had previously signaled that it would consider accepting bids from private investors, running the risk of souring relations with Japan, who had originally been set to develop the project.

The port project was set to have a capacity of 3.75m teu and help alleviate congestion at Indonesia’s main port of Tanjung Priok in North Jakarta but the Cilamaya project was scrapped due to the project’s impact on the expansion of state oil and gas firm Pertamina’s nearby offshore operations.
