Proven Logistic Strength

The problematic Barito River has been one of the reasons why Central Kalimantan's billioon tons coal deposit is locked away from mining development. Through years of intensive research, msCOAL has discovered a proven solution that further transforms such threat into opportunity.

Advance Depth Prediction System
Our proven logistic strength relies in our ability to invent an advance computerized system to predict the depth of Barito River within a certain period of time, normally within four to six days. This is completed with a specific course line for each depth category for our specifically designed 180-230 feet tug and barge units to follow through. The increasing number of partnerships with local tug and barge operators stand as testament of our success.

Three Strategically Located Ports
On the northern part of Barito River, approx. 268.5 miles from Barito River-mouth, we have set up Luwe Port and Pangku Port to support our barging activities, supported by 500MT per day loading capacity conveyor jetties with up to 100,000MT throughput stockpile capacity per day.

To focus on conquering the most difficult terrains of Barito River, we have strategically set up Timbau Port on the southern part of Barito River at some four days sailing from our barge feeder ports, at the safest depth that can accommodate 320 feet sized barge to start sail and at approximately 360m river width in all seasons. Located at approx. 119,39 miles from Barito River-mouth, Timbau currently deploys two manual jetties with 3,500MT transfer capacity per day and one conveyor jetty with 4,000MT per day. Timbau's stockpile throughput-capacity reaches 270,000MT per day.
