Bali’s Long-awaited New Cruise Terminal Nears Completion
Originally scheduled for completion in December 2018, the highly anticipated new cruise terminal at the Port of Benoa in Bali, Indonesia, recently completed the dredging of a new water channel – to be used as both a berthing and turning basin – and estimates construction is at 90%.
Together with a new development plan in place, there are two bollards weighing 150 tons each to be added on to accommodate larger vessels, as well as a tidal measuring buoy to measure the precise strength of the current along the water channel when ships are entering the port. These bollards and tidal measuring buoy are expected to be installed later this year.
Expected to transform into a world-class port, the new facilities will be able to accommodate ships carrying up to 5,000 passengers at a berth of 11 metres in depth and handle 2,500 visitors at a time. The project also includes the development of a marina for super yachts.
