State Electricity Company (PLN) said it is ready to provide any support in a power plant project prepared by Papua provincial administration in cooperation with regional company PT Papua Power Indonesia and state company PT Indra Karya.
Chief Director Dahlan Iskan last week the state firm is ready to help the consortium to build the 300 megawatt hydro power plant in Urumuka, Timika and said option to cooperate with Indra Karya in the project is the right one considering its experience in civil engineering projects.
But he suggested the Papua provincial authorities to make another cooperation with another company which has experience in electrical engineering jobs. “The consortium if possible should not build only a power plant but also its transmission. So that electricity could be distributed to consumers in Timika.”
