Suprabakti were given another opportunity to work with PT. Jakarta Tank Terminal. This time for fender replacement and installation. 

PT. Jakarta Tank Terminal is a joint venture between PT. AKR Corporindo and Royal Vopak. Located strategically in Tj. Priok, PT. Jakarta Tank Terminal was designed to handle petroleum products. With current capacity 250,000 cbm, PT. Jakarta Tank Terminal will increase its capacity to 350,000 cbm.

February 2020.

Continuing our In-House Training program with ShibataFenderTeam, this time we have the opportunity to talk to 3 engineering consultants with various port design experience. We visited Royal Haskoning DHV, PT. Wiratman Cipta Manggala, and Aurecon Indonesia.

After presentation on fender design, interesting Q&A sessions were generated. Questions were asked on how to utilize shear and tension chain. Another question was on rubber lifetime, how to make sure that the spare fender have the same quality with the installed fender. 

Our main focuses on this year is fender specification. Consultants as the specification maker should thoroughly understands on what makes a high quality fender and what details they should put to specify it.

We wish all three consultants the best luck for their ongoing and upcoming projects. 


January 2020.

PT. Vopak Terminal Merak (VTM) is one of the petrochemical facility located in Merak – the main shipping route for bulk liquid chemicals. Their berth uses SFT fenders since 2012.  VTM operates every day, 365 days in one year. 

With their extremely busy operational schedule, there are some damages found on one of their fender. VTM would like to replace it with the spare fender they have bought in the past. We perform and supervise the whole fender removal and installation process.

Although high quality fenders are typically have long lifetime (approx. 10 years), we still strongly suggest and encourage every port/jetty to have 1 extra set fender system for any urgencies.  

We wish all the best for the company, and we are looking forward to work again with PT. Vopak Terminal Merak in the future.
