Indonesian naval patrol vessels which are operated in the waters of the Riau Islands (East of Sumatra) must return to their home base at Surabaya for their periodical maintenance and repair. Establishment of a naval base in that area that can provide maintenance and repairs to the patrol vessels could save the time and cost lost in steaming the distance to Surabaya and return. Three prospective sites were considered for potential development as a naval base. From these three sites six alternative base systems were developed. A cost-effectiveness methodology was used for selecting the preferred alternative. The result of the analysis indicated that upgrading the existing facilities at Tanjungpinang to a naval station without maintenance and repair facilities and performing the maintenance and repair of the naval patrol vessels at Surabaya is the most cost-effective base system among the alternatives considered.
