The proposed Port of Kijing will complement the current river port at Pontianak and a local network of coastal and river terminals with a planned total capacity of up to 3 million TEUs, 15 million tonnes of bulk capacity, and over 20 millions tonnes of liquid capacity per annum.

The three month study saw a number of experts from BMT’s offices in Hong Kong, Singapore and Indonesia come together to provide both economic and technical expertise, to determine the viability of a multi-purpose deep water port on the west coast of Borneo – the world’s third largest island. BMT specialists carried out extensive analysis and research on areas including: hinterland market assessment, throughput forecasting, technical review for port suitability, various conceptual layout design exercises and financial viability assessments.

The existence of a new port in Kijing will connect West Kalimantan with the principal intra-Asian shipping network, and improve the region’s connectivity and logistical efficiencies. Johnny Tjea, President Director of BMT Asia Pacific Indonesia comments: “While the rest of the world is still feeling the effects of the global financial crisis, Indonesia is one of the fastest growing economies in Asia. As such, the Government recognises that investment in port infrastructure is a key ingredient to drive economic growth and enhance supply chain efficiencies in Indonesia. We are excited to be working with IPC II again and playing an integral role in an important, strategic project.”

The proposed port of Kijing will complement the current river port at Pontianak and a local network of coastal and river terminals with a planned total capacity of up to 3 million TEUs, 15 million tonnes of bulk capacity, and over 20 million tonnes of liquid capacity per year.
