ANDRITZ Hydro in Indonesia
ANDRITZ has been an active contributor to Indonesia’s hydropower development for more than 100 years. The first hydropower plant built by ANDRITZ in Indonesia was Bangoen Purba back in 1910. Malabar and Mendalan followed in 1930.
To date, ANDRITZ has contributed to the development of about 128 units with a combined capacity of 3,099 MW. This represents a market share of more than 60%. Responding to the positive hydro-market outlook and in readiness to provide client support, ANDRITZ established a local entity, PT ANDRITZ Hydro, back in 1996.
Large hydropower plants owned by Indonesia’s state-owned utility PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) Persero that are currently under construction, such as Peusangan 1 & 2 and Asahan 3, illustrate ANDRITZ’s success in Indonesia. Its strong national presence is also revealed by the comprehensive assessment, rehabilitation, implementation and upgrade projects at several running and significant hydropower installations, such as Cirata, Besai, and Renun.
With more than 10 decades of experience in the execution of hydropower projects in Indonesia, ANDRITZ is continuously capturing opportunities for further improvement. PT ANDRITZ Hydro has successfully established a dedicated engineering team for the design and supervision of the installation and commissioning of automation products, electrical power systems, penstocks and gates. ANDRITZ’s Indonesian team also provides services for projects both locally and in more than 35 other countries.
