PLN, General Electric to Power Up Eastern Indonesia

A subsidiary of state-owned utilities firm PLN is teaming up with US-based conglomerate General Electric to provide electricity to remote pockets of Indonesia.

“We are in the process of drawing up a memorandum of understanding [for the project],” PLN president director Sofyan Basir said in Jakarta on Tuesday.

The two companies are set to form a consortium to build gas turbine power plants with the capacity of 1,000 megawatts and featuring the latest technology from GE throughout Eastern Indonesia, where access to electricity remains scarce.
