INDONESIA | High Speed Rail

First Phase:
  • The 140-kilometre (87-mile) Jakarta to Bandung high-speed line is part of 730-kilometres (454 miles) of new rail planned for Indonesia.


China, Japan battle to build Indonesia's first bullet train

Quote:
Jakarta (AFP) - China and Japan are locked in an increasingly heated contest to build Indonesia's first high-speed railway, with the Asian giants sweetening deals and turning up the charm as time runs out to woo Jakarta.

The rivalry over this major project is just the latest to flare up as China challenges Japan's long-standing dominance in Southeast Asia as a key source of infrastructure funding.

Japan, a top-three investor in Indonesia with huge stakes in the automotive and mining sectors, seemed destined to build the high-speed railway until China muscled in with a counter offer earlier this year.

Latest:

China, Indonesia launch joint venture for Jakarta-Bandung railway project

Quote:
JAKARTA, Oct. 16 (Xinhua) -- Senior officials of Chinese and Indonesian consortiums signed an agreement here on Friday to launch a joint venture for a railway linking Jakarta with West Java provincial capital of Bandung.

The deal was signed by Chairman of PT Pillar Sinergi BUMN Indonesia Sahala Lumban Gaol and Yang Zhongmin, chairman of China Railway Co. Ltd. at a ceremony attended by Chinese Ambassador Xie Feng.

The 5.5-billion-U.S. dollar project will be conducted on business to business basis in which the Indonesian side controls 60 percent of the joint venture's stake, while the Chinese partner controls the remaining 40 percent share.

The 150-km medium-speed railway is expected to have a speed of between 200 to 250 km per hour.

The railway is the first transportation project in the country conducted solely on business basis and without any fund from government's budget.

Sahala also expected the Indonesia-China joint venture to expand its service to similar projects in Southeast Asia and Middle East in the future.

The Chinese partner was also willing to provide transfer of technology (TOT), which would build facilities to produce high-speed trains in Indonesia and supply them to new markets served by the joint venture, he added.

Construction of Jakarta-Bandung Railway to Start Nov. 9


Quote:
Jakarta. Construction of a new railway line between Jakarta and Bandung is set to begin early next month, an official said on Friday.

The $5.5 billion projectis a joint venture between China Railway International and a consortium of Indonesian state-owned companies, called Pilar Sinergi BUMN Indonesia (PSBI).

Sahala Lumban Gaol, the chairman of the joint venture and an adviser to the minister for state-owned enterprises, said work on the high-speed railway line would begin on Nov. 9, with the project expected to be finished by the end of 2018 and commuter services to commence in the first quarter of 2019.

The PSBI will hold a 60 percent stake in the joint venture, while China Railway International, which will hold the rest, will fund 75 percent of the project.

Sahala reiterated the government’s line that the project would not rely on any state funding, with financing already agreed on under a business-to-business scheme.

He said the project would boost the economy in the areas through which the railway line will cut.

“We will develop locations where stations will be placed for the Jakarta-Bandung corridor,” he said.

The government had earlier proposed building a high-speed line between the two cities, with bids from China and Japan being considered. However, the administration of President Joko Widodo pulled a last-minute switch on the eve of announcing the bid winner, saying it was no longer interested in a high-speed line – much to the chagrin of the Japanese, who had already spent millions of dollars on a feasibility study for the project.

While analysts have welcomed the scrapping of the high-speed project – the 150-kilometer distance between Jakarta and Bandung would mean the train would never reach anywhere near its top speed – they have also questioned the need for a medium speed line, given that there is already a train service between the cities, as well as a toll road.

China can make Jakarta railway model of win-win


Quote:
BEIJING, Oct. 16 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson on Friday congratulated Chinese and Indonesian consortia on a joint venture for a high-speed railway link between Jakarta and West Java provincial capital Bandung.

The deal was signed by Chairman of PT Pillar Sinergi BUMN Indonesia Sahala Lumban Gaol and Yang Zhongmin, chairman of China Railway Co. Ltd. on Friday.

The Indonesian side will control 60 percent of the joint venture.

"China has won the Jakarta high-speed railway contract with sincerity and strength," said Chinese Ambassador to Indonesia Xie Feng.

China and Indonesia are good neighbors, friends and partners, said spokesperson Hua Chunying at a routine press briefing. China is confident that working with Indonesia will make the project a success and a model of win-win cooperation.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Xie said the high-speed rail link would be China's largest overseas project in terms of investment and will be executed entirely with Chinese technology.

Indonesia in the future will have every inch of it's land connected by HSR. There is enough for both Japan and China. Sadly, Indonesia isn't yet in a financial/economic position to split between the two countries, i.e. not enough money to splurge on multiple lines and split them like between Airbus and Boeing to keep both happy.

High speed train project to have effect on nearby cities


Quote:
The Indonesian state enterprise consortium and its Chinese counterpart have promised accelerated economic growth in the areas between Jakarta and Bandung, West Java, as both countries signed a joint venture agreement on the controversial Jakarta-Bandung high-speed rail project on Friday.

During the signing, state enterprises consortium PT Pilar Sinergi BUMN Indonesia, comprised of state construction firm PT Wijaya Karya, state railway operator PT Kereta Api Indonesia (KAI), toll-road operator PT Jasa Marga and state plantation firm PT Perkebunan Nusantara VIII, also formed a joint venture with China Railway International called PT Kereta Cepat Indonesia China.

“With the signing, we have started a new episode of railways and transportation in the country, along with the development of a corridor where business and economic growth centers will be developed,” said PT Pilar Sinergi BUMN Indonesia chairman Sahala Lumban Gaol.

The high-speed train, which will run at over 250 kilometers per hour on a 140-kilometer-long track, will pass eight stations, including Gambir, Manggarai and Halim Perdanakusuma in Jakarta and Karawang, Walini and Gedebage in West Java. However, Sahala said the train would service four stations in its first phase of operation.

It is expected to reduce congestion as well as ease movement between the two cities.

The railway project, with an estimated cost of US$5.5 billion, is slated to begin construction by 2016 and be finished by 2018, according to PT Wijaya Karya president director Bintang Perbowo.

Bintang added that the development of the high-speed railway could create new residences around the transit areas, with its transit-oriented development (TOD) planning that is integrated with the railway.

“With these new areas being opened, people will choose to live there. There will also be development of a new city, such as in Walini,” he said, adding that the places would be more attractive as they could be reached in a more time-efficient manner after the railway development.

Walini, a hillside area near Bandung, used to be a tea-producing area but has become unproductive. The area is expected to be utilized as a business center and residential area in the future. Some parts of Walini implicated in the project belong to PT Perkebunan Nusantara VIII.

The state enterprises also pinned their hopes on accelerated development in Karawang, which is already known as an industrial area. The Indonesian consortium will have 60 percent of the venture, while its Chinese counterpart will own 40 percent.

Meanwhile, three quarters of the funding will come from the China Development Bank(CDB), which is expected to sign the loan agreement by the end of November.

The high-speed train project sparked controversy following Indonesia’s decision to reject a proposal from Japan in favor of China, as the world’s second-largest economy agreed to a business-to-business (B2B) scheme instead of a government-to-government(G2G) scheme.

The Indonesian government insisted that the project would only run if it did not require any state funds, guarantee, or state capital injection (PMN), which could not be fulfilled by the competing country.

Infrastructure development has been one of the main focuses of President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo to boost economic growth, which hit a six-year low of 4.67 percent in the second quarter of the year.

Meanwhile, Chinese Ambassador to Indonesia Xie Feng said that going forward, the development would be a landmark project for the countries’ strategic partnership.

“This will be our single biggest project and the most important early harvest in the alignment of our development strategies,” he said. (fsu)

Sejak beberapa tahun lalu sebetulnya kawasan Walini ini sudah pernah saya dengar akan dikembangkan oleh salah satu developer kelas kakap. Tapi kalau nanti menjadi lokasi pemberhentian kereta cepat, lokasi ini kemungkinan besar bisa berkembang cepat karena memiliki akses yang sangat baik dengan kereta maupun jalan tol.

Investors to relocate factories after Indonesia-China train deal?

Quote:
The Indonesian government is feeling the heat after Japanese investors reportedly have threatened to relocate factories and reconsider investment plans after a 150-km fast-train project from Jakarta to Bandung was given to Chinese investors. The Japanese side thought they had won the deal.

Strangely, neither China nor Indonesia first announced the US$5 billion project. It was first announced by a Japanese official who told local media his country had lost out. On Friday, October 16, the two countries officially signed the deal.

“The policy suddenly changed — it’s hard to understand how the Chinese plan was adopted, and I can only describe it as extremely regrettable,” said Yoshihide Suga, the Japanese chief cabinet secretary said late last month in Tokyo.

Money talks

An official from Jakarta’s Ministry of State Enterprises said the decision “was based on the financial, not purely on the technical,” with China offering to take on the project without a loan guarantee from the Indonesian government.

“The development will not use any part of the state budget, directly or indirectly. The government will not provide any viability gap fund. The cooperation will be under a business-to-business scheme,” President Joko Widodo was quoted as saying.

The project is also seen as part of China’s sweeping global push to build infrastructure as part of its New Silk Road initiative. Indonesia is a strategic place for both countries as they compete for influence.

The news came as a blow for Japanese investors, considering that the Indonesian government has sent mixed messages on the project. An Indonesian government spokesman, however, said that the government understands Japan’s disappointment and urged Tokyo not to relocate their investments elsewhere as there are many more infrastructure projects needed to modernize Indonesia’s creaking public services.

China and Japan are largely seen as the chief competitors for Indonesia’s plans to spend tens of billions of dollars on infrastructure over the next few years, largely because the two countries offer very competitive government-backed financing packages. Japan is already building Jakarta’s first modern mass transit rail system

Abe defeated

The contract award is a setback to the geopolitical aspirations of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who has made it a major foreign policy goal to check rising Chinese influence in the region by using loans and grants to fund important infrastructure projects.

Japan also seeks to use the Asian Development Bank, which it effectively controls by traditionally appointing the bank’s president. Abe himself has pledged ¥750 billion (US$6.1 billion) in regional aid as part of a plan to increase infrastructure funding by 25 percent.

Indeed, according to Bloomberg, the ADB has increased its lending in the region by 17% to keep up with the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank proposed by China President Xi Jinping and launched with considerable fanfare last October, although no lending plans have been announced.

The AIIB, as it is called, is supported by 37 regional and 20 non-regional members. Some 53 prospective founding members have signed the Articles of Agreement that form the legal basis for the proposed bank.

Although the Japanese thought they had won the project, some observers anticipated that Jokowi would give it to the Chinese, as his government has engaged in billions of dollars in infrastructure projects with Beijing. Last year, Jokowi also demanded a bigger role in the AIIB, by proposing that the bank open its headquarters in Jakarta.

Wrong signal for investors

However, critics say the confusion over dealing with Japan and China has sent the wrong signals to investors.

First, Jokowi said the government would scratch the whole plan for technical reasons, saying that the railway wouldn’t reach its maximum speed, then he mulled a new plan to develop a medium-speed train instead, telling both China and Japan to submit new bidding schemes.

The Japanese and Chinese envoys to Indonesia didn’t hide their displeasure regarding the government’s decision to cancel the original plan after the two had competed for months to secure the contract. The new train will be “fast” but not “high-speed.” – Rappler.com

HSR Jakarta-Bandung stations

Being told in the 'INDONESIA | Railways' topic that high speed rail discussions belong here, I post my comment on the four stations for the Jakarta-Bandung HSR here once again.

It seems that the choice for four stations is more or less in line with my earlier thought of two 'city stations' and two 'suburban P+R stations'. Halim as the city station in Jakarta, with connection to the airport-to-airport train as well as the LRT lines. Karawang as the suburban station with park-and-ride facility, near the toll road, just a bit more to the east than Bekasi. Walini (I assume by this they mean the new development in Cikalong Wetan, Bandung Barat) is also along the toll road, a bit north of Padalarang. The most confusing to me is Gedebage as this is almost 20 kilometres east of Bandung's city centre. To take the HSR to Bandung would thus mean either getting off at Walini and travelling 40 km further, or getting off at Gedebage and backtracking 20 km.

I do understand that Bandung's government wants to develop the Gedebage area, but a station a bit closer to the city centre would perhaps make sense? As I assume the HSR will between Walini and Gedebage follow the route of the toll road, a station around Pasir Koja or Kopo seems sensible to me. I would also like to hear others' opinions .

Bandung to Build Monorail Proof of Concept to Lure Investors

Quote:
Jakarta. The Bandung city administration plans to build a 1.5-kilometer monorail track next year as a proof of concept to attract investment in its public transportation sector.

Municipal authorities have struggled to raise the estimated Rp 18 trillion ($1.3 billion) needed to build a planned five-line monorail system aimed at easing the progressively worsening traffic in the West Java capital.

Mayor Ridwan Kamil also wants the monorail network – Indonesia’s first, once completed – to serve as an engineering showcase as he tries to rebrand Bandung into a technology hub.

He said the city-funded proof-of-concept line, to run from Bandung’s main train station to the city’s main park, both in the city center, would hopefully convince the central government to either simplify Indonesia’s investment procedures or help the city finance the entire project.

Construction of the proof of concept will begin early next year, with city engineers still working out the cost.

The only export achievement of Japanese HSR is the Taiwan metro line that was built for over 20 years. And now Taiwan's metro line face the bankruptcy problem at any time because of the heavy debt caused by Japanese expensive maintenance service charge.

Don't forget mainland China too, Japanese HSR technologies greatly helped China to jump start her own HSR industry.

This is a good demonstration of China's inclusive development model. China has learned a lot from Japan and other developed economies of Northeast Asia and it is now time for China to offer its contribution.

Update on Jakarta - Bandung high-speed rail line



Fast Train to Apply Driverless Technology

Quote:
Jakarta - The Jakarta-Bandung high-speed train will apply a driver-less technology and level IV Safety Index Level from China, according to president director Hanggoro of the state enterprises consortium PT Pilar Sinergi BUMN Indonesia.

“It’s driverless, but there will be drivers who are responsible to open and close doors, monitor passengers and situations,” Hanggoro said Thursday, November 26, 2015. Hanggoro explained that the Level IV Safety Index Level would not allow accidents caused by human errors.

“The safety index level is the highest standard in the world, and China has been the only country using it. One of the advantages is that all factors are calculated allowing no room for human errors,” he said.

Quote:
The Jakarta-Bandung bullet train project is set to begin construction at the beginning of the second quarter in 2016, according to president director Hanggoro of the state enterprises consortium PT Pilar Sinergi BUMN Indonesia.

"We are currently waiting for the issuance of the Environmental Impact Analysis permit; the process is still underway at the Environment and Forestry Ministry," said Hanggoro in Bandung on Tuesday as quoted by Antara news agency.

Other project requirements that were still in process, he added, included project implementation recommendations from the West Java governor and Jakarta governor.

Paperwork ongoing for Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway

Quote:
The government continues to review paper work for the development of a high-speed rail project connecting Jakarta and Bandung, West Java. The project faces permit and funding issues ahead of its mid-December soft launch.

Transportation Ministry director general for railways Hermanto Dwiatmoko said the ministry was looking into permits and regulations related to the project and drafting technical standards for the high-speed train.

“We will base some [standards] on the UIC [International Union of Railways],” he said, referring to global organization for railway cooperation. The technical standards would be used to evaluate the competence and efficiency of PT Kereta Cepat Indonesia China (KCIC) in constructing the high-speed train.

KCIC is a joint venture between Indonesian state firms PT Wijaya Karya, PT Kereta Api Indonesia, PT Jasa Marga and PT Perkebunan Nasional VIII with the China Railway International Co. Ltd. KCIC has been chosen to build Indonesia’s first ever high-speed train at an estimated cost of US$5.5 billion. Three quarters of the funding will come from the China Development Bank.

The high-speed train, which will run at over 250 kilometers per hour on a 140-kilometer-long track, will begin construction in 2016 and will be finished by 2018. It will pass four stations in its first phase, including Halim in Jakarta and Karawang and Tegalluar in West Java.

Hermanto also said that the ministry was reviewing proposals for railway track routes. The proposals for particular track routes were submitted by KCIC last week.

“But before we give permits for the planned track routes, we need to also get a land-use permit from the regional administrations of Jakarta and West Java,” he said.

The regional administrations of both areas are expected to offer recommendations for track routes by developing provincial spatial planning policies.

The ministry previously planned to evaluate track route proposals by conducting field examinations in the areas passed by the railway project.

The estimated time needed to issue the permit for the track routes is around 30 days from the time of document submission. Other documents required for submission include an environmental impact analysis document and a design document.

The ministry’s spokesperson, Julius Andravida Barata, said that KCIC would not automatically agree to the recommendations put forward by the Jakarta and West Java administrations. “I think they’ll go through the process in a parallel way,” he said.

The absence of a regional government recommendation has also put the brakes on the soft launch, originally scheduled for the middle of this month. Another issue faced by KCIC is acquiring from the ministry the necessary capital to get a permit to operate the facilities for the public inter-city train.

Government Regulation No. 45/2015 on required capital for firms in the transportation sector stipulates that the minimum capital needed by a firm to operate a public intercity train is Rp 1 trillion ($71.8 million). The regulation is designed to secure the sustainability of these kinds of projects.

KCIC president director Hanggoro Budi Wiryawan said that the firm was still looking for the funds from shareholders.

“I can’t say much, this depends on the shareholders from Indonesia and China,” he said over the phone. He said that the time of the groundbreaking would also depend on the completion of all the required documents. (fsu)
