The project is crucial to upgrading the country’s network, which will ultimately support Indonesia’s economic, industrial and infrastructure development.
The Siemens Energy Management Division - Transmission Solutions of PT Siemens Indonesia has successfully energized ten high voltage substations for the State electricity company (PLN) and industries. Substations are integral components of power grids. They connect grids of differing voltage levels. The ten substations are located all over the country in Jakarta, West Java, North Sumatra, South Kalimantan and South Sulawesi. For these projects, Siemens’ scope of services includes design, procurement and delivery of electrical, automation and mechanical equipment, and installation, testing and commissioning works for Air Insulated Switchgear (AIS), Gas Insulated Substation (GIS) and Gas Insulated Line (GIL) projects rated at 150kV and up to 500kV.
“Siemens has been recognized as the leader in the Electricity sector, proven by the success of our efforts in energizing ten substations to the State electricity company (PLN) and industries. We’re honored to be able to take part in the Government and PLN efforts in providing reliable power supply to meet the increasing national electricity demand,"" said Jitendra Pratap Singh, Head of Transmission Solutions ASEAN, PT Siemens Indonesia.
Demand for electricity in Indonesia, as the fourth-most-populous country in the world, is projected to grow continuously every year. To meet that demand, Indonesian government has launched the National Electricity Master Plan, to add 35,000 megawatts (MW) of new power generation capacity by 2020. In 5 year plan, the government together with state-owned electricity company PLN and private sector will build hundreds of electricity infrastructures all over Indonesia.
To develop these electricity infrastructures, PLN needs to team up for necessary capacity, resources, experience and expertise. Therefore, finding the right company is the best way for the government to execute the program. Siemens Indonesia as one of leading companies that have resources, experience, expertise in electrical power system’s planning and execution, as well as localization is the perfect complement for the development of Indonesia electricity infrastructures.
