A plant for constructing submarines is being built at PT PAL’s premises in Surabaya, where work on the complex is scheduled to complete by September 2016, the company’s executives told IHS Jane’s on 8 March during a tour of the shipyard.

“Construction of the third Chang Bogo-class submarine is scheduled to begin from October 2016 at this facility,” said Tjahjono Yudo, PT PAL’s general manager of corporate strategic planning.

The plant’s set-up has been designed to mimic Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering’s (DSME’s) facility in South Korea, he said. He added that PT PAL personnel are currently in Okpo to understudy the construction of the first two boats.
