An Indonesian company will construct two more PH landing docks.

Philippines’ Department of National Defense (DND) placed an order for two landing platform docks with state-owned shipbuilder PT PAL Indonesia (LPDs).

On June 24 in Manila, the firm and the Philippine government inked a sale and purchase agreement.

The Philippines had placed a second order for warships with PT PAL Indonesia, according to Willgo Zainar, the company’s chief marketing officer.

“We are honored to be able to aid in Asean nations’ defense. We also applaud the Philippines’ confidence in selecting PT PAL for a second time to supply marine defense gear, the official added.

According to him, the company was persuaded to construct two warships since the Philippine government had expressed satisfaction with the performance of the two Strategic Sealift Vessel (SSV) landing docks that PT PAL had provided several years prior.

One of the Philippine delegates that visited PT PAL Indonesia before stated that they were pleased with the after-sales services we provide in addition to the high quality of the goods.

The second order from the Philippine government, according to Zainar, showed that the corporation’s capacity and capability in acquiring defense equipment had grown in the eyes of the worldwide market.

It is inextricably linked to the part played by the Indonesian government, which has supported and trusted us. In addition, PT PAL is making an effort to position itself among the top 50 global defense industries as part of (the state-run defense industry holding) Defend ID, he added.

The Zero-Defect predicate received for the development of the joint portion of the Indonesian navy’s submarine KRI Alugoro-405 also serves as evidence of the company’s superior welding expertise.

The landing docks that the Philippine government has currently ordered will be constructed in Surabaya.

The ships are expected to be 7,200 tons in weight, 123 meters long, and 21 meters tall, with a 30-day cruise range.
