Trikora Lloyd Buys Three Ships At Total Cost Of $45 Million
P.T. Trikora Lloyd, an Indonesian- flag line, marked the purchase of three vessels at a total cost of $45 million in a recent "changing of the flag" ceremony held at Pier 5, Port Authority in Brooklyn, N.Y.
With these vessels, P.T. Trikora Lloyd will own five ships on the United States/Southeast Asian route for a sailing f r e - quency from the United States every third week. Formerly sailing under the Dutch flag and chartered to P.T. Trikora Lloyd, the Amstelstroom, Amstelstraat and Amstelstrand have been renamed the Suhadiwarno Panjang, L. Jalabert Bontang, and Palembang, respectively.
"The size of our investment best expresses our commitment to the trade between the United States and Southeast Asia and our confidence in the tremendous growth potential," said owner's representative John Tumbelaka.
The 17,400-dwt m u l t i p u r p o se cargoliners, with a capacity of 396 TEUs, were built by Marine Industries, Ltd., Sorel, Quebec, Canada.
These vessels were designed to transport general cargo and bulk cargoes, as well as containers.
This versatility permits optimum adaptation to prevailing freight markets. The ships are powered by M.A.N, medium-speed diesel engines, and have a cruising speed of 17.25 knots and a cruising range of 12,000 nautical miles.
P.T. Trikora Lloyd, an independent carrier, serves the United States ports of New York, Baltimore, New Orleans, and Houston direct to Singapore, Jakarta, and Surabaya. In existence since 1964 with headquarters in J a k a r t a , P.T. Trikora Lloyd started serving the U.S. in April of 1979.
General agents f o r the line are Kerr Steamship Company, Inc., with offices in major cities in the United States and Canada.
