Drydocks World has announced  that Chairman Khamis Juma Buamim had highly productive discussions with the Indonesian Defense Minister HE Prof. Dr. Purnomo Yusgiantoro on wide ranging issues of mutual co-operation within the maritime industry with a primary focus on potential partnership on projects for the coast guard and navy. Mr. Buamim was in a business trip tour to Indonesia and attended the Investment Summit in Jakarta, which saw large scale interest from industry and business leaders and high-ranking government officials.


“We have tremendous experience in servicing the maritime industry with leading edge solutions and are confident that we can offer great value and support the Indonesian government on naval projects. This is in the light we have been catering to navies on a global scale at various points of time and have high standards of project management and delivery that are essential for minimizing risks to naval programme budgets and timescales. Additionally, we are interested in knowledge and technology transfer to enable the design and construction of increasingly sophisticated high-end customized vessels,” Mr. Buamim observed.


Subsequently, a MoU was signed by Drydocks World and PAL Indonesia, which has 26 years of experience in ship repairs general engineering and design, building commercial and naval ships and high speed vessels. The MoU was signed by Khamis Juma Buamim and Muhammad Firmansyah Arifin, Chairman of PAL Indonesia and was aimed at mutual co-operation in shipbuilding, general engineering and other relevant areas. The scope of the MoU also stretches to maintenance of oil and gas equipment and offshore structures, an area which is of sustained interest to Drydocks World and its Southeast Asia joint venture and global operations.
