Indonesia holds offset talks with Abeking & Rasmussen for new hydrographic ship​

by Ridzwan Rahmat

Indonesia's Ministry of Defense (MoD) held a virtual meeting with German shipbuilder Abeking & Rasmussen to discuss the possible procurement of an ocean-going hydrographic vessel.

According to meeting documents provided to Janes by a government source, the event was held virtually on 3 September.

The meeting was headed by Director General of Defense Potential, Brigadier General Aribowo Teguh Santoso, while Abeking & Rasmussen officials were accompanied by representatives from the company's local agent PT Agrapana Nugraha Katara.

Also present during the meeting were representatives from Indonesian shipbuilders, PT Palindo Marine, PT Batamec, and PT Bandar Abadi, state-owned electronics company PT Len, and the deans of the machining and electro-informatics faculties at the Bandung Institute of Technology.

The source that provided Janes with the documents described the meeting as one that centred around how Abeking & Rasmussen can work with local companies should a contract for the hydrographic ship materialise.

Officials from the Indonesian MoD were also keen to understand if the vessel could be built in-country with assistance from German engineers, the source added.

Indonesia's Ministry of National Development Planning and MoD have approved a plan for the country to obtain up to USD150 million in foreign loans for the procurement of an ocean-going hydrographic ship.

It is one of 31 armed forces procurements, upgrades, and maintenance programmes for which permissions to source foreign loans have been approved by the ministries in 2021.

  • PT Len Industri and Thales have signed a strategic partnership agreement for further collaboration on a wide array of defence-related topics including radars, military satellites, electronic warfare, UAVs and combat management systems.
  • The agreement was signed between both organisations on 20th April 2022 in Surabaya on the launch occasion of Indonesia’s defence modernisation plan, in the presence of Indonesian President Joko Widodo and Minister of Defence, Prabowo Subianto.
  • The joint collaboration on these topics aligns with Indonesia’s drive to modernise and restructure its defence capabilities in an increasingly complex threat environment.
Indonesia has outlined an ambitious military modernisation plan through to the mid 2040s. The challenges of defending a vast archipelago amidst global threats support the country’s needs to focus more resources on strengthening its overall defence capabilities.

In support of Indonesia’s strong military ambitions, PT Len Industri and Thales have signed a strategic agreement for deeper collaboration in multiple defence topics. The agreement was signed in Surabaya on 20th April 2022, by Mr. Bobby Rasyidin, President Director for PT Len Industri and Mr. Guy Bonassi, Senior Vice-President, Asia, Eurasia and Latin America for Thales, with the event graced by President of Indonesia, Mr. Joko Widodo; Minister of Defence, Prabowo Subianto and other dignitaries.

In the frame of this agreement, PT Len and Thales will jointly explore and further develop solutions on topics including radars, Command & Control systems, military satellites, C5ISR, electronic warfare, UAVs and Combat Management Systems. For radars, the collaboration will include the planned transfer of technology for military and civilian radars, including local MRO activities, and the co-development of a national Command & Control (C2) radar.

Thales has been the leading partner of the Indonesian Navy for the last forty years, supplying combat systems for all warships in service. The strategic agreement will explore the co-development of a national Combat Management System (CMS) based on Thales’ TACTICOS CMS, currently deployed on the KRI Usman-Harun Multi-Role Light Frigate (MRLF).

With its strong credentials in radar technology and naval modernisation programmes, this agreement strengthens Thales’ industrial footprint in Indonesia, as a strategic partner to help the country reinforce its armed forces and defences across increasingly complex air and maritime domains. The agreement also affirms Thales’ commitment to building local expertise and growing its industrial footprint in Indonesia.
