INDUSTRY.co.id - Kupang, PT Garam Indonesia is currently preparing a salt field in Bipolo village, Kupang regency, East Nusa Tenggara. Later the field will produce industrial salt so as to reduce the import of salt.

"Salt in Bipolo is highly developed for industrial salt, and we are setting to meet the salt industry in this country," said Director of PT Garam Indonesia Budi Sasongko quoted by Antara in Kupang on Monday (26/3/2018).

He added that the salt field developed in Bipolo is a perfect salt farm, because it was first processed by PT Garam Indonesia.

Unlike the salt fields in Madura first developed during the Dutch era so that the sedimentation of the land needs to be revitalized and redesigned.

"But because here (Bipolo, red) is a new model then our design, we perfected in accordance with the correct operating standards in the hope that the salt fields we are developing are all for the industry," he added.

Budi added at the end of 2017 that salt produced Bipolo has been sent to the island of Java to be processed into industrial salt because there is no processing plant in NTT.

The amount sent to Java reaches 4,000 tons. But according to him the amount is too small considering the current land area reached 318 hectares.

"The number of harvests that are still small is due to weather anomalies by the end of 2017," he said.

Budi added for the year 2018 is assuming a normal season then it targets can produce approximately 30,000 to 40,000 tons to be shipped to Java and processed into industrial salt.

"If the season is in accordance with the normal season here ie from May to January next year then this target will be achieved," said Budi.
