If all goes well, the name of winner of tender of airport railway development project would be announced by next July, having run the tender for the third time. In this third tender, among the participating companies in the tender, three of them had submitted their documents on July 22, 2009, namely: Rallink, Mitsui, and China Harbour Indonesia.
Nugroho Indriyo, Secretary General of Railway stated that PT China Habour Indonesia which was a newcomer in the tender, had submitted the application form on time for the third auction on June 22 2009. This company from China would, with PT Rallink and an investor from Japan. Mitsui, fight for the opportunity to build the Soekarno Hatta airport railway project and to run the operation as well a project which was worth Rp 2.2 trillion.
However, it was still doubtful if the three companies would pas the examination of documents evaluation. Assuming that the winners were just two persistent companies, the Government would directly appoint the winner obviously in accordance with the applicable regulations.
The appointment of winning company would be based on the criteria of best company. So it was a matter of their Investment, whether they could come up with the best infra structures. The Department of Transportation it self had not received any input in regard to be auction of this railway project hence the Government was not in the positions decide whether the project would be executed or not, considering that the winner consisted of only 2 companies.
The tender of Soekarno-Hatta airport railway project had been repeated for the third time, because the inventors who were registered did not continue their participation, so that the minimum required number of tender participants could not be fulfilled. The first tender was participated by a number of investors, but only one participant submitted the application form, i.e PT Rallink; the second tender was participated by 2 companies, again this had to be repeated since there were only 2 companies who participated, which nade it difficult to make any announcement.
