The Indonesian government has opened the tender process for the construction of the Tatimban Port in Subang, West Java, that is worth Rp 13.7 trillion (US$1 billion), an official said in Jakarta on Sunday.

Anwar, the secretary to the Transportation Ministry’s Patimban Port construction team, said three packages were being offered: terminal, breakwater and seawall and connecting breach.

He said the winning bidders would be announced in March. “Construction will begin in early April,” Anwar told kontan.co.id.

“Because of limited human and financial resources, each company would only handle one package,” he added.

Meanwhile, Anwar said the negotiations between the Indonesian government and the Japanese International Cooperation Agency was still ongoing. “The loan is expected to be signed in November.”

He added that the Transportation Ministry would also put out a tender for a private operator to help run Patimban Port with state-owned port operator PT Pelindo II.

Anwar said the construction of the car terminal was expected to be completed in March 2019, while the Patimban project was expected to be completed in December 2019. (bbn)
