Indonesia Bins Cilamaya Port Project

Indonesia Bins Cilamaya Port Project

The Indonesian government has crossed out the project to build Cilamaya port in Karawang district, West Java province, as it plans to move the new port further east in search of clear shipping lanes not obstructed by offshore platforms, as is the case with the initial location, the local Antara News reports.

Indonesia’s Coordinating Minister of Maritime Affairs Indroyono Susilo said that the government is still looking for a new location eastward from Cilamaya waters, which is dotted with around 80 offshore platforms.

Indroyono said that the primary goal now is to find a ten-kilometer-wide line offering safe passage for commercial vessels.

The government plans to perform a new feasibility study for the new port which, according to Indroyono, should be operational by 2020, and help alleviate congestion at Jakarta’s Tanjung Priok port.
