Pertamina International Shipping and PT Pelindo have inked a partnership agreement for the development of the Jakarta Integrated Green Terminal (JIGT) in Kalibaru, North Jakarta.
Notable figures, including President Director of PT Pertamina International Shipping (PIS), Yoki Firnandi, and Director of Strategy of Pelindo, Prasetyo Pras, signed the development collaboration for JIGT in the presence of Deputy Minister I of State-Owned Enterprises, Kartika Wirjoatmodjo.
Wirjoatmodjo praised the collaboration between these two state-owned firms. He stressed that the JIGT will be critical infrastructure for future renewable energy growth.
Pertamina President Director Nicke Widyawati, emphasised that JIGT will be built to current and ecologically friendly standards, making it Indonesia’s most sophisticated terminal.
This port, which would be located in Kalibaru, will reportedly be larger and will supplement the Integrated port Plumpang, which now serves as the backbone of petroleum infrastructure in Western Java.
Widyawati said: “Jakarta Integrated Green Terminal in Kalibaru is designed following the energy transition trend and the future green energy business development of Pertamina, as well as being an energy terminal with the best operational standards.
“JIGT would not only store fuels like LPG, gasoline, and biodiesel but would also be designed to accommodate LNG, CPO, UCO (Used Cooking Oil), and petrochemical products. JIGT is also designed to anticipate the increasing energy demands following the national economic growth targets.”
Meanwhile, Yoki Firnandi noted that in its implementation, JIGT would be built and managed by PIS as the Integrated Marine Logistics Sub-holding, which has a longstanding focus on strategic energy terminals management.
JIGT is being built in the Kalibaru sector of North Jakarta, in an area developed by PT Pelabuhan Indonesia (Pelindo).
It is a population-free zone with deep-sea facilities capable of handling huge vessels along the waterfront. JIGT is expected to have a storage capacity of up to 6.3 million barrels over an area of 64 hectares.
The terminal’s construction is planned in response to the nation’s increasing and diversifying energy needs in the next years.
“In its construction, JIGT will incorporate ESG aspects and emissions-free practices. The terminal will be operated with a digital system for enhanced safety, reliability, and efficiency,” Firnandi conveyed.
