IPC, Mitsui, NYK Line & PSA to develop container terminal in Jakarta


PT. Pelabuhan Indonesia II (IPC), Mitsui & Co Ltd. (Mitsui), Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK Line) and PSA International Pte Ltd (PSA) have agreed to jointly participate in the construction and operation of a container terminal at Tanjung Priok Port, Jakarta, Indonesia. The terminal will be developed and operated by the newly established project company PT New Priok Container Terminal One (NPCT1).

Jakarta’s Tanjung Priok Port handles the majority of Indonesia’s international container traffic. The need to increase port capacity and handling capabilities is to support the growing trade.

The new terminal will have an annual handling capacity of approximately 1.5m TEUs of containers, an overall berth length of 850 m, and a 16-m draft upon completion, allowing the terminal to accommodate mega container vessels. NPCT1 will also pursue reduction of emissions, and energy conservation and environmental protection activities such as a “Green Terminal” by exploring the use of environmentally friendly facilities such as “cold ironing”.

Participation in the construction and operation of the container terminal at Jakarta’s Tanjung Priok Port will help Mitsui to benefit from the growth potential of high-growth economies in Southeast Asia and to expand its involvement in logistics infrastructure projects.

The project is PSA’s first in Indonesia. Together with its partners, Mitsui, NYK Line and IPC, the company will aim to harness the country’s growing economy and facilitate the expanding maritime trade.
