At the 2nd PJBConnect event that takes place on October 23-24, 2017 in Surabaya, “We are showcasing our solutions to support the digital transformation of the energy sector in Indonesia,” stated Ivan Sutanto, Head of Sales – Utility, Power and Gas Division, PT Siemens Indonesia. Siemens' strategic goal is to help the energy sector in Indonesia especially PLN and PJB to overcome challenges with technology and solutions along the entire energy conversion chain that increase efficiency and reduce costs – from the utilization of fossil resources for power generation and transportation to improvements in consumption as well as localization.
To help ensure an efficient and reliable power supply, the SGT-400 – a modularized gas turbine can generate 12 megawatt electricity with the opportunity to convert it into combined cycle. It is very easy to install and suitable for Indonesia’s industrialsector, oil & gas sector, as well as to be installed in remote areas. The SGT-400 Gas Turbine package can be locally manufactured with 75 percent local content without the core engines. In the field of power generation services, MyAdvisor can help optimize turbines and compressors by identifying potential improvements like power increase and emissions reduction to reduce operating cost through greater efficiency. Siemens also featured the latest innovation – the Polytransformer / Universal Transformer which had been installed in several locations in Indonesia.
Transformers are actually form the backbone of modern energy grids, and their reliable operation is crucial to ensuring a stable and resilient power supply. On the allocated two-day technical sessions, Siemens experts will present technology topics such as Polytransformer and Vacuum Technology in Generator Circuit Breaker, Siemens Mindsphere and Digital Services for Energy and Wind Power Technology from Siemens Gamesa. “This event is a good platform to showcase and share our expertise and provide solutions to PLN and PJB. We hope to be part of this event again next year,” stated Ivan.
Siemens have been present in Indonesia since more than 160 years ago. Our technologies help to support Indonesia’s infrastructure in energy, manufacturing, transportation, as well as healthcare. Over the past 20 years, Siemens invested more than EUR 200 million in Indonesia. More than 11% of the country’s power is generated with Siemens technologies. We invest significantly in high quality training and education to increase value-add of our facilities in Indonesia for the production of power plant components and medium-voltage switchgears, protection & control panels. Today, these factories have excellent quality standard to produce reliable products at a competitive price. Not only these factories are doing export worldwide, they also provide an excellent foundation to support local content of the government’s fast track projects.

Following written submission of inputs to the National Agency of Food and Drug Control (BPOM), EuroCham continues the ongoing discussion with BPOM on simplification of import-export licenses and other formalities that must be acquired from BPOM. One of the simplification proposals offered by EuroCham is to provide an exemption from the requirements to undergo BPOM import formalities if the goods are non-commercially used or if the goods are for company internal development, such as for the purpose of research and testing, and will not be transferred to third party. The meeting on 20 October 2017 was chaired by Ms. Chairun Nissa as the Head of Food Certificate Sub Directorate of BPOM, and attended by few representatives from EuroCham Transport and Logistics Working Group, Import-Export Procedures Working Group, as well as representative from ASPERINDO. As a follow up of the meeting, EuroCham will maintain close communication with BPOM and support BPOM efforts in simplifying these formalities.
