Cooperating with Four Private Companies, Pelindo III Spurs Productivity This year

June 11, 2018

PT Pelindo III (Persero) prepares spending capital or capex in 2018 amounting to Rp 12 trillion. Of that amount around Rp. 5.8 trillion was prepared for the improvement and development of port services infrastructure in the 27 ports it manages.

As a first step, Pelindo III signed a Memorandum of Collaboration (MoC) or a cooperation agreement with four private companies, on Friday (1/26/2018).
Namely PT Optima Sinergi Comvestama, PT Gresik Jasatama, PT Kendal Industrial Area (KIK) and the Surabaya - Madura Regional Development Agency (BPWS).

"In this MoU, it is our first step to boost the productivity of non-container commodities," IGN Askhara Danadiputra, President Director (President Director) of PT Pelindo III, said after the signing was held at Pelindo III headquarters, Surabaya.
The collaboration with PT Optima Sinergi Comvestama was carried out for the development of the Liquefied terminal
Natural Gas (LNG) at the Port of Tanjung Emas, Semarang.

The step was taken to improve the service of the LNG terminal which so far only exists in Gresik Port.
"Because in addition to the LNG terminal, we also prepare cooperation with the Kendal Industrial Area (KIK) which is a development of existing facilities in Tanjung Perak Port," he explained.

The collaboration with PT Optima Sinergi Comvestama includes the development and operation of the LNG terminal as well as the LNG supply, logistics service providers, to increase employee competence in terms of gas management.
While KIK is a national industrial area which was only inaugurated in 2016. The distance between KIK and Tanjung Emas Port reaches 20 kilometers (km). So it is considered quite strategic.

From the capex value, according to Ari, the nickname IGN Askhara Danadiputra, prepared Rp. 3.5 trillion for the development of the industrial area.
Stanley Ang, President Director of PT KIK, added that his party is still holding discussions with Pelindo III regarding how to develop and develop cooperation.

"Because the KIK land is still large. It reaches 2,200 hectares. Currently, the first stage is being cultivated 860 hectares. So the development potential in KIK is still broad," Stanley added.

Meanwhile, in cooperation with PT Gresik Jasatama, Pelindo III made the company a partner for the management of LPG terminal port facilities and bulk goods. So far, the management has been carried out by Pelindo III of the Gresik Port branch.
It is expected that this collaboration with PT Gresik Jasatama will be the maximum management of LPG and bulk terminals.
