Pertamina Trans Kontinental receives Indonesia’s first LNG DF vessel

22 Aug 2019

PT Pertamina Trans Kontinental (PTK), the maritime logistics services subsidiary of PT Pertamina (Persero), on Wednesday (21 August) received delivery of the liquefied natural gas harbour tug Transko Rajawali at a ceremony at the PT Dok Warisan Pertama (PaxOcean) shipyard.

“The ship is one of the PTK investments supported by Pertamina and is a matter of pride, especially for PTK, because it is the first dual-fuelled ship (HSD and LNG) in Indonesia and owned by PTK,” stated PTK.

The construction of the Rajawali Transco featuring an engine capable of using dual fuel mode is intended to support the Government's program towards reducing air pollution, it adds.

The newbuilding was made by the PaxOcean shipyard in Batam with a construction period of around 18 months; it is expected to immediately commence operations for Persero subsidiary PT Perta Arun Gas, a client of PTK.
