UAE port operator DP World and Indonesian conglomerate Maspion Group have inked two agreements, on the sidelines of a state visit by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of UAE Armed Forces visit to the Asian country – following a three-day China visit  to build the $1.2bn (AED4.4bn) Maspion International Container Port logistics park in Gresik, East Java. 

The Emirati-Indonesian joint venture (JV) is the first public-private partnership (PPP) for Indonesia’s transportation sector, and will entail cooperation with Indonesia’s government-owned maritime services operator Pelindo 3. 

The Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo, were joined by Indonesia's Minister of Transportation, Budi Karya Sumadi, and Minister of State-Owned Enterprises, Rini Soewarno, for the agreements' siging ceremony.

Ground-breaking work for the 3.6km2 facility is imminent, with commercial operations planned to begin in H1 2022.

Maspion International Container Port will have a capacity of three million twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU), with the port to use electric power to cut carbon emissions.

Commenting on the project, chairman and chief executive officer of DP World and chairman of Ports, Customs, and Free Zone Corporation, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, said: “This partnership will be a major addition to our [DP World] global portfolio.”
