Shipbuilder PT Lundin is on track to deliver a replacement vessel for the Indonesian Navy’s KRI Klewang that was completely destroyed in a fire four years ago, the company’s CEO has confirmed.

John Lundin told Shephard that his company was still on schedule to deliver a new 63m trimaran-hull vessel ‘late next year’, with build progress now over 30% complete at its facility in Banyuwangi, East Java.
