goodmorningpapua.com – The Ministry of Social Affairs (Kemensos) is producing fiber boats and electric motors. This is done to make it easier for people to transport goods in Papua.
A Social Minister Tri Rismaharini said that because the road in Papua is quite steep, the government has created an electric motor.
“To achieve access there it is still quite difficult, hindered by mountains, rivers. Currently we are producing an electric motor which we will modify with freight transportation, so that later we will be able to solve the transportation of goods at the top of the mountain,” she said at the Coordinating Ministry for Human Development and Culture, Wednesday. (29/12/2021).
Risma said the electric motor could make people save fuel. “The price of one liter of fuel at the top of the mountain can reach IDR 100 thousand, so this electric motorbike can be used to transport goods, because the road is relatively small, so you can pass on the trail with this motorbike,” she said.
In addition to electric motors, the government is also making fiber boats. “We are also making ready-made fiber boats. Because the problem in Papua is accessibility, that’s why we make accessibility for the community,” she said.
In total there are 6 fiber ships. Risma said that 2 ships had been completed on November 10 and 4 ships were completed on December 25.
