JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Indonesia’s state-run construction firm PT Wijaya Karya (WIKA) is building a trestle to facilitate traffic flow between waterfront and shore at the international port of Kijing Terminal in Pontianak in Indonesia’s West Kalimantan province.

The terminal is to accommodate large vessels with loads up to 100,000 deadweight tons (dwt) with an average draft of 15 meters.

In building the 3.37-kilometer trestle WIKA has adjusted its required structure and depth.
WIKA’s Director of Operations I Hananto Aji said that the construction of the longest trestle the company has ever built has been agreed upon by the owner of Kijing Terminal.

“The agreement covers the length of the trestle that is not too close to the shore and water depth of 17 meters to pave the way for large vessels with loads up to 100,000 deadweight tons (dwt) to berth,” Hananto said on Friday, October 23.

He said that with all the works done by the team, the project was completed faster than most trestle projects. In the implementation of the work, WIKA was also supported by its subsidiaries — WIKA Beton, Indonesia’s concrete producer, and WIKA Engineering Construction.
