Moermahadi explained that this project was never included in the corporate long standing plan (RJPP), nor in the corporate budgeting plan (RKAP).

"In the technical aspects, the construction of NPCT did not use sand material but mood, causing high risk to secendary drop and potentially affect the  construction solidity, including to the one  of NPCT1 that has been in operation," said," Moermahadi.

BPK that is helped by some construction  experts and geologists concluded that even the NPCT1 operational period is only 20 years due to such poor construction, far from 100 years claimed by PT Pelindo II/IPC.
