East Java Multipurpose Terminal (EJMT), a subsidiary of International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI), is undertaking a major infrastructure development project.
On October 12, EJMT hosted a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the beginning of construction for this ambitious project in East Java, Indonesia.
The project encompasses several key components, including a 300-metre quay line, breakwater, super heavy lift breakbulk deck, and dredging of the navigational channel to a depth of 13.5 metres.
To facilitate efficient cargo handling, the terminal will be equipped with two post-Panamax mobile harbour cranes and various other cargo handling equipment.
This strategic development aims to create a modern gateway that will benefit the Lamongan, Tuban, and central Java hinterlands.
“We are very excited about this new terminal development as it will provide a new and more accessible gateway for our hinterland customers in Lamongan, Tuban, and up to central Java,” said Patrick Chan, Chief Executive Officer of EJMT.
“Catering to an already thriving industry with this new investment, EJMT is well-positioned to support the growing economy of East Java and Indonesia.”
David Lim, Chief Executive Officer of PT Eastern Logistics, the operator of Lamongan Shorebase, highlighted the project’s significance and broader implications: “Lamongan Shorebase has been operating and supporting oil and gas customers since 2006.
“The development of EJMT will provide domestic and international access to our existing and new customers, who will also benefit from the reduced overall supply chain costs.
“The heavy lift deck will allow us to support the upcoming project developments in Eastern Indonesia, as well as receive decommissioned platforms,” Lim added.
The construction of this cutting-edge terminal is a collaborative effort, with EJMT partnering with local firm PT. PP (Persero) for the project.
The terminal is expected to be fully operational and ready to receive its first vessel by September 2024.
