North Kalimantan to build Pesawan Seaport in 2018

Nunukan, N Kalimantan (ANTARA News) – The provincial government of North Kalimantan will begin the construction of the Pesawan Seaport in Bulungan District in 2018.

The seaport will have a 450-meter-long dock capable of accommodating at least four ships at once, Governor of North Kalimantan Irianto Lambrie noted in a statement here, Tuesday.

To be located in an area measuring 60 hectares, the seaport will better facilitate the loading and unloading of goods, he remarked.

Supporting facilities, such as warehouses, passenger terminal, and custom and excise offices, will also be built surrounding the seaport area.

The construction of the Pesawan Seaport is part of a sea toll program serving the route connecting Tanjung Selor, the capital of North Kalimantan, with Surabaya, East Java Province.

Transportation Minister Budi Karya Sumadi is scheduled to visit North Kalimantan this week to inspect the construction site of the Pesawan seaport.
