Chandra Asri jetty reconstruction, Cilegon, Indonesia

The upgrade of a live petrochemical jetty

Posted on 29 April 2015


Throughout the execution stage of this petrochemical jetty in Cilegon, vessels were able to berth for loading and offloading Chandra Asri’s various petrochemical products. Works focused on nine dolphins, one of which was completely reconstructed. The other eight were upgraded. 


Throughout the project, weather conditions have been a major challenge, as the works progressed through the monsoon season. Another challenge lay in the soil conditions, which proved more complex and variable than anticipated on the basis of the original survey. A challenge that was foreseen was coping with changing shipping schedules the live jetty.

Technologies used

All works were carried out using a modular jack-up barge equipped with a 200-ton crawler crane, the first of its kind ever to be used in Indonesia.
