Jakarta. Toshiba has reaffirmed its stance and commitment to help the Indonesian government achieve its goal to ramp up electricity production and add 35 gigawatts to the national grid within the next five years, the company said at the "4th Indonesia Geothermal International Convention & Exhibition," in Jakarta on Wednesday (10/08).
“Toshiba has been supporting Indonesia for over 40 years and there are still so many ways to contribute, not only through energy solutions, but through the provision of infrastructure needed to support the rapid growth of Indonesia,” Toshiba Asia Pacific managing director, Tetsu Doko said.
Toshiba said that since 2011, it has been supplying and will continue to supply Indonesia with a combined capacity of up to 7,000 megawatts through 19 steam turbines units and 33 hydraulic turbine units.
Toshiba first acquired Envitech Perkasa, an engineering, procurement and construction company in 2011. To accelerate their goals, they established a local office in Indonesia in 2014.
Toshiba also revealed its plans to expand its network by acquiring more local companies to support Indonesia's geothermal power station projects.
