The traffic congestion conditions in Jakarta prompted the need for the city to rapidly ramp up its public transportation system. As a result, the government had decided to push for the Light Rail Transit (LRT) project, with reference to the President Regulation No. 98 Year 2015 about The Acceleration of Implementation of Public Railway in Jakarta. PT Adhi Karya (Persero) Tbk. was appointed to build and operate the LRT as the Project Developer while a third-party Project Management Consultant (PMC) was needed to ensure smooth and effective implementation of the LRT project. TÜV Rheinland, as a proven and trusted certification body, was appointed as the official PMC to deliver inspecting and consulting during project development and implementation stage.


Our experts and specialists will consult on various aspects and considerations of the development and implementation work, and apply our technical capabilities and experience with past rail projects to support the Project Developer. Mr. Vincent Tan will lead this project as Project Director, assisted by Mr. Ruddy Herlawanto as Project Coordinator, and supported by experienced expert engineers from TÜV Rheinland Greater China team. All our experts have minimum 10-15 years of relevant experience and have worked on many major rail construction projects in Asia. The team also acclimatized to local working cultures and expectations.

We are no strangers to the Indonesian transportation market. In the past years, TÜV Rheinland had undertaken many similar projects. We were selected by PT Jakarta Monorail and SMKTD (Land Transportation Safety Management System) project for PT Elnusa. On top of which, we had also been appointed by the Ministry of Transportation to conduct several expert training and to support public projects.
