International consultancy and project management company, Royal HaskoningDHV (RHDHV), has won a contract to supervise the construction of Indonesia’s largest port extension at Jakarta’s Tanjung Port.

State owned port operator, Indonesian Port Corporation (IPC) assigned RHDHV as lead consultant for the supervision of the construction of stage 1 of the extension along with local sub consultant, PT Atrya Swascipta Rekayasa.  

The multi million pound contract is part of the North Kalibaru Terminal Development which will see the creation of a new 4.5m teu container terminal, due to be operational in 2014, to strengthen Indonesia’s national logistics chain, increase global competitiveness as an international hub for seaborne trade.

Herman Pals, director of advisory group maritime and waterways Indonesia, RHDHV, told Port Strategy: “We have been keeping a close eye on developments in Indonesia. The project is one of the largest new port developments in the South East Asia region so it’s a very prestigious project for us and is another opportunity to put us on the map.”

RHDHV says it will organise a team of over 50 staff to provide the expertise required to deliver the complete supervision works and to resolve any issues arising from the construction works.

“The projects itself will take about five years to complete the first phase. Our job is to make sure that the contractors finish on time and are doing their work in the right way,” Mr Pals added.

Upon completion in 2023, Tanjung Port will more than triple its annual capacity to 18m teu of container traffic.
