Urgent Rehabilitation Project of Tanjung Priok Port, Indonesia (2010 to 2014)

Employer : Ministry of Transportation, Government of Indonesia
Location : Tanjung Priok, Jakarta, Indonesia

Tanjung Priok Port, the largest international port in Indonesia, is located on northern coast of Jakarta, and serves as a gateway port handling substantial part of the country’s foreign sea-borne trade. Development of the port dates back to the late 19th century. Between the 1870’s and 1880’s, West Breakwater and East Breakwater were constructed. Basic configuration of the port remains almost the same since the opening of the port; the port access channel and basins are arranged in water area of little space. Due to the congestion in the narrow port water area, more than 50 ships always have to wait for berth in the offing and containerships of 50,000 DWT class face the difficulty in calling and leaving the port. In response to the request from the Government of Indonesia (GOI), “Study of Greater Jakarta Metropolitan Ports Development Plan” was conducted by the Government of Japan (GOJ) from 2002 to 2003 with Japan’s Grant Aid, to formulate a master plan of Tanjung Priok Port and new Bojonegara Port with target year of 2025, including the recommendations for early implementation of Urgent Rehabilitation Project of Tanjung Priok Port. The GOJ and GOI have concluded in 2004 a Japanese ODA Loan Agreement to cover the costs of construction works and supervisory services required for the project. JPC has participated from 2005 in the detailed design study (Japanユs Grand Aid) for such project facilities as stated below as a member of Joint Venture Consultants. JPC has started in 2010 its supervisory services for the project in the same capacity.

Major port facilities to be provided under the project include :
– Port access channel (deepened to -14 m and widened to 300 m) with navigation aids;
– Relocation of Central Breakwater (demolition : 1,605 m, new construction : 1,561 m);
– Relocation of West Breakwater (demolition : 225 m, new construction : 100 m);
– Inner port roads (3,500 m long); and
– Flyover (650 m long).
