Second landing ship tank in build [INDODEF16-D3]

04 November 2016

Having delivered the landing ship tank (LST) KRI Teluk Bintuni to the Indonesian Navy (TNI-AL) last year, shipbuilder PT Daya Radar Utama (Hall A, Stand P020) is now working on additional orders for military logistics vessels.

The company confirmed to the Show Daily that it has recently received an order from the Ministry of Defence to build two 99m-long Landing Craft Utility vessels for the Indonesian Army (TNI-AD).

Delivery is planned from the end of 2018. In addition, PT Daya Radar Utama is working on the build of the second LST for the TNI-AL.

While derived from Teluk Bintuni, the absence of a hangar means the design is slightly smaller with regard to both length and beam. First steel was cut in June 2016, with handover planned for early 2018.
