Indonesia: Government considering bigger coal barges to help prevent piracy
The government is considering providing bigger barges for coal exports to the Philippines in order to prevent further incidents of piracy in the regional waters.
Coordinating Political, Legal and Security Affairs Minister Luhut Pandjaitan said that the rather small size of Indonesian-flagged tugboats traveling across the border could be one reason why they often became victims of hijackings by militant groups.
"The vessels that we use to deliver coal are rather small and susceptible to being hijacked. If we used bigger barges it would be harder [for other groups to take them over]," Luhut told journalists.
He made the statement following a meeting with President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo in which they discussed options to secure the release of 10 Indonesian sailors who have been abducted on various occasions by what is suspected to be different factions of the Abu Sayyaf militant group.
The government is also investigating other reasons behind the Filipino militants' interest in kidnapping Indonesian sailors, Luhut said, without commenting further on the question of ransoms paid in hostage cases being a possible reason for the continued abductions.
Earlier, Indonesian Military (TNI) commander Gen. Gatot Nurmantyo said Indonesia might be too "persuasive" for the pirates, meaning that the militants knew the country's vessels were not guarded by military personnel and thus the lack of security was a reason for the hijackings.
To step up security measures, the TNI has prepared personnel to guard every barge and tugboat traveling in the regional waters, with at least five TNI personnel on each vessel, Gatot said.

Great Eastern Shipping to expand fleet to 34
India's largest private shipliner Great Eastern Shipping Company Ltd (GE Shipping) today said it will acquire a Japanese built vessel this quarter to take the total tally to 34.
The company at present owns a fleet of 33 vessels.
"The GE Shipping signed a contract to buy a medium range product tanker of about 48,539 DWT," the company said in BSE filing.
The 2005 built vessel is expected to join the company's fleet in Q2 FY17.
The company said its current fleet stands at 33 vessels, comprising 23 tankers (7 crude carriers, 14 product tankers, 2 LPG carrier) and 10 dry bulk carriers.
The vessels have an average age of 9.97 years aggregating 2.48 million DWT.
The company has recently said it has committed USD 120 million capex by 2018 and already invested USD 38 million.
GE Shipping is India's largest private sector shipping service provider enjoying a formidable presence in the international maritime industry.
The company said a sizeable part of the tankers enjoy approvals from oil giants like Shell, BP, Exxonmobil and Texaco, among others.
