German engineering company Siemens AG announced that a deal had been signed with Chinese firms to participate in infrastructure development programs in regions across Indonesia under China’s mega infrastructure project, the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
Siemens Indonesia signed agreements with three Chinese firms for the development of gas- and coal-fired power plants at the BRI International Summit that was held by Siemens in Beijing on Wednesday.
“The power [plant] programs will take place outside Java. We are talking about Kalimantan, Sulawesi, Papua and others,” said Siemens Indonesia’s head of power and gas division, Bernaud Stuckart, on Thursday.
The development programs would focus on medium- and small-sized power plants that were most-needed in small and rural regions because they were still in need of electrification and power, said Stuckart.
