The consortium formed by AREVA’s Transmission and Distribution division and PT Multifabrindo Gemilang, Indonesian electrical equipments contractor, has been awarded a €120 million contract by PT PLN (Persero), the Indonesian public electric utility.
Through this contract, AREVA will modernize the Indonesian network in line with the “10 GW Generation program1” launched in 2006. This turnkey contract includes delivery of several high voltage substations as well as underground electrical cables, in order to distribute power to the main Java cities (Jakarta, Bandung and Surabaya).
This project supports the government’s ambitious program to increase access to electricity for Indonesians within reliability and continuity of power supply.
“In a highly competitive market environment, we are delighted to contribute to this major project which represents a great step towards the modernization of the Indonesian electrical network”, says Michel Augonnet, Executive Vice President for the Systems business unit of AREVA T&D.
