PAL Indonesia has purchased the entire Tribon Shipbuilding system for design and production of ships at its shipyard in Surabaya. PAL Indonesia has chosen to implement the complete hull and outfitting applications of the Tribon system to increase the yard's automazation and efficiency.
PAL Indonesia has more than 20 years of experience in designing, engineering and building commercial and naval ships. Some examples are passenger ships, tankers, bulk carriers, container ships, corvettes and fast patrol boats. PAL Indonesia has the largest shipbuilding facilities in Southeast Asia. The shipyard is equipped with modern panel lines, plasma cutting machines, and with a fully automated pipe bending and welding machine.
PAL Indonesia has also signed up for Tribon.com - the neutral Internet service for the maritime industry linking together shipyards, maritime equipment suppliers and ship owners in a comprehensive global network.
Dr. Ir Adwin H. Suryohadiprojo, President Director PAL Indonesia, said "By implementing the Tribon system we will be part of the Tribon infrastructure giving us increased opportunities to co-operate with more shipyards, as many shipbuilders world-wide are Tribon users. It will be easier for us to buy and sell ship designs
made in Tribon. Our flexibility will increase as it will be easier for us to hire designers trained in Tribon, and furthermore we can easily outsource design tasks as many design engineering offices are using Tribon."
