A fire raged through the Indonesian Navy's 'Klewang-625' at the naval port in Banyuwangi, East Java last week. No casualties have been reported but the Rp114 billion (USD11.91 million) ship was severely damaged.
Indonesian Eastern Fleet (Armatim) spokesman Lt. Col. Marine Yayan Sugiana told The Jakarta Post that the vessel was undergoing maintenance by its builder, PT Lundin Industry.
“The vessel had yet to be officially handed over to the Navy. It was still undergoing maintenance checks by PT Lundin Industry,” he said.
The navy, however, said it would investigate the blaze, which lasted for two hours before fire fighters managed to extinguish it.
“We will deploy a team to investigate the cause of the fire. We will use the report to evaluate the case,” he said.
PT Lundin Industry's director, Lisa Lundin, said the company would deliver an official statement relating to the incident on Monday.
Building of the carbon-fibre composite vessel was initiated in 2007, when PT Lundin Industry undertook extensive research into building a fast, modern ship capable of evading radar. In 2009, PT Lundin commenced construction of the 63 metre vessel.
Around 30 Armatim members were trained to operate the vessel in September this year.
