Shipyard Workers Repair Freight Vessels

JAKARTA, NNC - A number of workers are repairing a freight ship in a shipyard in Muara Angke, North Jakarta.

Like the usual days, the workers look for and repair the damaged parts of the ship's body and fix it. They are pretty nimble while moving down every part of the ship that has been damaged or worn out.

According to data from the Ministry of Industry, the national shipbuilding industry accomodates 250 shipyards, with production capacity of approximately 1 million deadweight tonnages (DWT) per year for new vessel construction and 12 million DWT per year for ship repairs and maintenance.
