Aluminum producer PT Indonesia Asahan Aluminium (Inalum) has supplied 105 megawatts (MW) of electricity to help tackle power outages often occurring in areas across North Sumatra recently.
Inalum president director Sahala Sijabat said Inalum provided the electricity supply for free as the company cared about the power crisis affecting the province. The electricity had been channeled to areas in North Sumatra since Nov.28 last year until now.
“This is part of Inalum’s commitment to help as much as possible in resolving the electricity crisis in the province,” he told The Jakarta Poston Wednesday.
Besides North Sumatra, Sijabat said, Inalum had also provided 1.5 MWs of electricity to state electricity company PLN in Porsea, Humbang Hasundutan regency.
