The contracts with Indonesian port operator Pelindo I involve engineering and consultancy services for the development of Kuala Tanjung Port in North Sumatra.

Kuala Tanjung is one of the 24 strategic commercial ports to be developed under President Joko Widodo’s maritime highway vision. It is located on the international shipping lane of the Malacca Strait and will be integrated with a nearby existing port and Special Economic Zones in order to serve as a gateway for local markets.

The trade mission has also been addressing Jakarta’s integrated coastal development. Groundwater extraction means that parts of Jakarta are sinking some 100mm a year, posing a anger for some four to five million people in North Jakarta who in many places are only protected by a little wall.

Royal HaskoningDHV Indonesia resident director Berte Simons said: "Since the Indonesian government asked the Dutch government for assistance in 2007, the Dutch water sector is contributing to a lasting solution to sustainable water management of the city. No small task in this area where space is scarce, stakeholder interests are large and government budgets limited. We are proud to contribute to the National Capital Integrated Coastal Development (NCICD) strategy that not only should be a sanitation, water supply, civil and hydraulic engineering feat but also one in which inclusive urban and socio-economic solutions are key.”
