Both PLN and Siemens have agreed on the development of 500 megawatts (MW) of distributed power generation capacities and on the development of the Indonesian transmission and distribution grid as well.
The Indonesian government currently has plans in place to expand its power generation capacities by 35 gigawatts (GW) by 2019. The country is also looking to expand its power transmission and distribution grid in order to secure the power supply of urban areas and improve electricity access for other regions at the same time.
“Siemens is ready to support Indonesia’s ambitious energy infrastructure program. With our broad portfolio and expertise we can help to develop a sustainable, affordable and modern power system,” said Roland Busch, Member of the Siemens Board. “Furthermore we can provide support with our expertise for project financing and we are ready to expand our manufacturing capabilities in the country,” Busch added.
