After having spent US$11.5 million in the development of the Tanah Ampo International Cruise Terminal in East Bali, the government is now lamenting that unfriendly natural conditions at the port will require extra efforts, more money and much time to create a functional cruise facility.

Beritabali.com quotes source at the Ministry of Transportation who blame the open sea exposure of the port in the regency of Karangasem as making it “very difficult” to create the needed cruise pier.

A source at the Ministry, who wished to remain unnamed, said: “Natural condition which in this context means the large waves (are to blame). A floating pontoon installed in that location faces the potential of being smashed by strong waves and surf. The first floating pontoon installed there was destroyed by the sea conditions.”

The same source said that to realize a cruise piers at Tanah Ampo a breakwater would have to be installed.

In this connection, the head of Bali’s transportation department, Made Santha, said the problem of building cruise piers at Tanah Ampo in Karangasem is now being discussed with the Ministry of Transportation in Jakarta. “At the Ministry of Transportation a possible 70 meter extension of the current pier is being discussed in Jakarta. When the additional 70 meters is completed the Tanah Ampo pier will have a length of 225 meters. It would (however) be great is the pier can be increased 200% from its current length to allow ships of 200 meters to berth at the Tanah Ampo pier.”

Santha was unable to specify to the press when any extension of the current dock will commence.

A lengthening of the current pier will not in any way address the open sea conditions at the port that make berthing alongside by large cruise ships impossible when the waves became too large.
