Pelindo Marine to procure 15 units of harbour tug boats in 2015

JAKARTA ( – PT Malindo Marine Service (PMS), a subsidiary of state owned port operator PT Pelindo III, plans to invest Rp1.25 trillion (US$99.97 mln) to procure 15 harbour tug boats in 2015.

President Director of PMS Choiroel Anwar was quoted by Bisnis Indonesia as saying that the plan to build the vessel was aimed at meeting growing demands for tug boats, in particular by port operators. He said the realization of the plan is pending on the approval of PMS parent firm, PT Pelindo III.

Pelindo III manages ports in middle and eastern part of Indonesia including Tanjung Perak port in Surabaya, Benoa port in Bali, Kumai in South Kalimantan, Tenau port in Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara.

He noted the new specifications of the new vessels will be different with the ones that were developed in previous years.

“All vessels will have a capacity of between 2,500 horse power (HP) to 3,500 HP. Such vessels will have the capability to guide large vessels entering ports,” Anwar said.

The tug boat will be distributed to ports in Semarang in Central Java, Banjarmasin in East Kalimantan, Kupang in East Nusa Tenggara province and Cilacap in West Java.

Corporate Secretary of Pelindo III Yon Irawan said the procurement of the vessels, if approved, will be carried out via an open tender, which is yet to be determined.
