The United States will take part in the Indonesian government’s 35,000 megawatt (MW) power plant construction program. American companies will focus on developing environmentally friendly power generation facilities.
The US intention to participate in the project was illustrated by the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Sudirman Said and US Ambassador to Indonesia Robert O. Blake Jr. on Wednesday.
“The government will give US companies the opportunity to support the 35,000 MW program, and we will particularly encourage US companies to develop new and renewable energy power generation. This is a government-to-government deal and it will be followed by a business-to-business deal with PLN,” Sudirman said, referring to the state-owned electricity company, PLN.
