State-run construction firm Pembangunan Perumahan (PP) has its sights set on the construction of power plants in Sumatra and West Kalimantan to support the government’s massive power plant development objectives.
In its initial plan, the company will focus on power plant construction projects in Aceh, Riau and West Kalimantan valued at Rp 9 trillion.
Lukman Hidayat, the company’s director for business development, research and technology, said the power plants in the three provinces would have a capacity of 200 megawatts (MW) apiece.
PP also plans to carry out a joint venture with another state company for the construction of a 800 MW power plant, which Lukman said would be located somewhere in Sumatra.
He declined to disclose the name of the company’s partner, saying PP was still working on the tender for the Rp 12 trillion project.
