Tanjung Priok set for expansion

Tanjung Priok set for expansion

Jakarta: The government will soon open a tender for the expansion of the country's largest port, Tanjung Priok, an official said.
Construction of the first phase of Jakarta's port expansion is expected to start this year to be completed in 2011, Sea Transport Director General Effendy Batubara said.
Expansion will include the enlargement of a canal, deepening the port and the replacement of the breakwater in the West Gate of the port, Batubara said.
With the expansion, the canal could accommodate two ships to keep pace with growing flows of cargoes in the port, he said.
Currently Tanjung Priok has the capacity to serve up to 80 ships per day and can shift up to 6,000 containers a day.
Based on a study by Japan International Corp Agency (JICA), Tanjung Priok needs a budget of Rp1 trillion (US$108 million) for expansion this year. [11/02/08]
