Indonesia is Karpowership’s first project in South East Asia. Karpowership has been awarded a tender by the state utility PT PLN (Persero) to supply electricity in 5 different islands of the Indonesian Archipelago for 5 years. The first Powership of 120 MW started operations in January 2016, only 54 days after its contract signing.
We have currently 960 MW deployed for Indonesia, with built-in reserve capacity to serve the excess generation needs of fluctuating island grids. The built-in reserve capacity, enable us to provide base load and peak power from within the same Powership, this also allows PT PLN to serve suppressed demand and increased demand to boost economic development. Our largest Powership in Medan with 470 MW capacity is scheduled to convert to run on the indigenous natural gas by the end of 2018.
