Ship to Shore

Indonesian Government to Make Bali Port of Benoa the Largest Cruise Port in Indonesia


Bali News: Ship to Shore

(2/16/2013)

Plans are underway between Indonesia’s Transportation Ministry, the Ministry of Tourism and the Creative Economy and the State-owned Company managing major ports - PT Pelindo III to develop Bali’s southernmost port of Benoa into the largest cruise port in Indonesia.

As reported by Beritabali.com and Seputarbali.com, the CEO of PT Pelindo III at Benoa, Iwan Sabatini, has revealed that his Company is in the process of calculating the extent of dredging and port enlargement, and supporting shore infrastructure pursuant to accommodating ships well over 300 meters in length.

The current length of the passenger pier at Benoa is slightly more than 300 meters. Ships longer than 300 meters must drop anchor near Serangan island or near Nusa Dua and use ship’s tenders for passengers landing at the Benoa cruise terminal.

Iwan confirmed that the longest ship to berth to date at Benoa has measured 265 meters.

Benoa is targeting to handle at least 38 cruise ships in 2013. In the months of January and February of 2013, the total number of ships to visit Benoa was around 10, with an average of 2,000 passengers each.

In March 2013 two ships are scheduled to visit Benoa on the same date.

Bali is now becoming known as a “turn-around” port where passengers on international cruise ships can either end or begin an international cruise journey.

Iwan Sabatini reports that in 2012 a total of some 67,000 passengers traveling on 35 cruise ships visited Benoa. He said when compared to 2011, there is a trend for larger ships to visit Bali. In order to anticipate this development, Iwan says Bali must prepare supporting port facilities to handle larger ships.

Benoa is currently working to increase the water depth for ships berthing at Benoa to from its current 10 meters to 11 meters.

Other improvements being added at Benoa include mooring dolphins for ships unable to come alongside, a strengthening of the current passenger pier, and an enlargement of the waiting area in the existing passenger terminal.
