Jakarta (ANTARA) - State-run construction firm PT Hutama Karya (Persero) will accelerate the completion of two mega-projects, the Lambur Mini-hydro Power Plant (PLTM) and the Tambak Lorok Gas Steam Power Plant (PLTGU), to support the G20 Summit.

The company's Director of Operations II Ferry Febrianto remarked that the physical construction of Lambur PLTM with a capacity to produce 2 x 4 MW of electricity has currently reached 100 percent and is entering the maintenance phase.

"We apply the Automatic Operation System, wherein all processing units operate automatically using Water Level Management and also use a Capacitor Bank to stabilize and correct the voltage required for auxiliary equipment, which can extend the equipment's useful life," Febrianto said in a statement here, Friday.

The project, which is located in Pekalongan, Central Java, with a contract value of Rp197.2 billion, has 85.3 percent of Domestic Component Level (TKDN).

It has passed all trial stages and will soon enter the Commercial Operation Date (COD) stage to supply electricity to the Java-Bali system using a 20-kV network, he said.

State-run power generation firm PT Indonesia Power, a subsidiary of state electricity company PT PLN, has applauded PT Hutama Karya for the completion of the project.

President Director of Indonesia Power M. Ahsin Siqdi said construction of the Lambur PLTM had shown significant development and was targeted for completion in November 2022, with just minor and finishing work left pending.

"The completion of the Lambur PLTM is a gift from Indonesia for the G20, which will be announced as part of the New Renewable Energy (EBT) project in the PLN Group. The PLTM will be inaugurated along with other EBT plants throughout Indonesia," Siqdi stated.

Hutama Karya has also expedited the completion of the Tambak Lorok PLTGU in Central Java, as the work to build it is 96-percent complete.

Block 3 of the Tambak Lorok PLTGU, with an investment value of Rp4.8 trillion, will become the first power plant in the Asia-Pacific region that uses High-efficiency Air-cooled (HA) gas turbine technology and produces electricity with a capacity of 600-850 MW.

Wika to Introduce Less Expensive Electric Motorcycle​

SEPTEMBER 14, 2022

Jakarta. Wijaya Karya, a state-controlled construction company and electric motorcycle maker, plans to introduce a cheaper two-wheeler than what the company currently produces, cementing its leading position in the nascent industry.

The company, also known as Wika, today makes electric motorcycles under the Gesits brand, which it claims controls 26 percent of the total market share of all-electric motorcycles in Indonesia.

"We will produce motorbikes that are cheaper than the current ones so that they can be achieved by the general public," Wijaya Karya's president director, Agung Budi Waskito, said on Tuesday.

A Gesits motorcycle is sold at Rp 28.7 million ($1,924) on the road in Jakarta, which is about a tenth of the province's annual per capita income. At that price, Gesits is more expensive than Honda beat, Indonesia's best selling gasoline-fueled scooter.

He said the company produces Gesits electric motorcycles through its subsidiary, Wijaya Karya Industri dan Konstruksi (Wikon). Agung said the electric motorcycle business has a bright future, so the company was committed to continuing its marketing.

"Yes, indeed, Gesits has strength, and I believe that in the future Gesits will have a good future. We have supplied supplies for state-owned enterprise offices and several government offices. We also market or distribute retail throughout Indonesia by cooperating with distributor agents," he said.

Gesits came from a collaboration of a local automotive company Garansindo and the Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology (ITS). The two entities joined forces and set up a joint venture called Gesits Technologies Indo (GTI) for motorcycle development.

In 2018, GTI and Wikon formed a joint venture called Wika Industri Manufaktur (Wima) as the principal manufacturer of the electric motorcycle. The joint venture constructed an assembly plant in Bogor, West Java, and started production in 2018.

Last year, Wikon bought out GTI's 10.66 percent shares in Wima for Rp 36.5 billion, taking full control of the company.

Today, electric motorcycles contribute only a tiny part of Indonesia’s motorcycle market. Total electric motorcycle sales in 2021 were only about 12,000 units or just 0.24 percent of last year's motorcycle sales.

The government has set a target to reach one million electric motorcycle sales in 2026, or about one-sixth of the projected market size.

The domestic manufacture of electric motorcycles is currently limited to local companies. The multinationals Honda and Yamaha, which account for 97 percent of Indonesia's motorcycle market, have not yet stepped into the nascent space.

Wikon's competitors include Smoot Motor and Viar Motor Indonesia, both backed by Southeast Asia ride-hailing giant Grab, and Ilectra Motor Group, backed by coal miner Indika Energy and venture capitals Alpha JWC Ventures, Horizon Ventures.

The heads of agreement (HoA) between VKTR and INKA and Barata was signed by INKA finance, HR and risk management director Andy Budiman, VKTR president director Gilarsi W. Setijono and PT Barata marketing director Sulistyo Handoko on Thursday.

VKTR’s Gilarsi W. Setijono emphasized that the purpose of the strategic partnership was to create an electricity-based transportation ecosystem by combining the competencies and resources of each company.

“Later on, our joint work will be focused on four things, namely research and development, co-manufacturing, repowering or conversion of conventional vehicles into electricity and sustainable ecosystem development," he said, as quoted in a release on Thursday.

For research and development, he added, the parties were open to collaborating with companies or universities.

The parties will cooperate in manufacturing – from the design process to the production of mechanical and electronic components – as well as in the conversion of conventional vehicles to electric ones, repowering.

"In terms of sustainable ecosystem development, the cooperation will [take] the form of providing electricity-based transportation that is more environmentally friendly for a number of tourist destinations. Our main targets include the areas of Sarangan, Bromo, Borobudur and Dieng," explained Gilarsi.

Meanwhile, INKA’s Andy Budiman said the scope of the cooperation also included performance and durability testing of components as well as their installation in EVs.

"For the first phase, the collaboration applies to electric bus transportation by INKA," said Andy.

He noted that INKA supported Presidential Decree No. 55/2019 on the acceleration of battery-based electric vehicles and was currently producing 53 electric buses, 30 of which would be used for transportation at the Group of 20 Summit and later by state-owned Perum DAMRI in Bandung and Surabaya.

"[The local content share] in our first-generation electric buses has reached […] 60 percent and is being improved further through collaboration with universities and local industries," said Andy.

Barata Indonesia’s Sulistyo Handoko said the collaboration was aimed at replacing imported products in the domestic EV industry.

“We continue to innovate in developing the competence of casting products to produce various types of industrial components that are competitive and can substitute for imported components. We welcome this collaboration not only to bring benefits to businesses, but also to contribute to the progress of the national manufacturing industry," said Sulistyo.

Sulistyo added that later Barata Indonesia would produce castings for the electric bus components, from the disc brake casing and front wheel hub to the steering link and front connector pad.

Barata Indonesia manufactures industrial components and engages in construction projects in the fields of agriculture, energy, irrigation and other supporting industries. It is currently developing railway components.

The local percentage of M-CVT transmission products from Indonesia itself is currently 69 percent.​


Suara.com - PT Honda Precision Parts Manufacturing (HPPM) managed to record a total production of Middle Continuously Variable Transmission (M-CVT) of 5 million units in just nine years.

This achievement is calculated since the first time HPPM produced the M-CVT transmission in November 2013 with the first shipment to Mexico.

"In the last nine years, we have reached 5 million units and shipped to 14 countries including the ASEAN region and Europe. Currently, the production capacity of M-CVT transmission is 740,000 units per year," said Manabu Shiraki as President Director of PT HPPM on Monday (12/9/2022).

He explained that the M-CVT transmission is a product that requires precision technology with a high degree of difficulty. Meanwhile, a large amount of investment is also needed, and expert human resources.

"Thanks to the cooperation of suppliers, support from all Honda Group parties, especially the hard efforts of all Indonesian associates who are of good quality, HPPM is able to continuously produce M-CVT with high quality that is proud of throughout the world," he said.

More than 90 percent of MCVT transmission products are exported to 14 countries in the world. This includes Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Turkey, Taiwan, India, Pakistan, China, and the United Kingdom. Thus, PT HPPM has made a major contribution to the Indonesian economy.

Indonesia became the second country after Japan to produce M-CVT worldwide. Honda's experience in working with local employee experts and suppliers who excel in producing two-wheeled transmission gears in Indonesia makes the country an MCVT transmission production area in the Asian region.

PT Honda Precision Parts Manufacturing itself is a manufacturing company that produces transmissions, established in June 2002 with an initial investment amount of 150 million United States (US) dollars. As of August 2022, the total employees of PT HPPM are 2,755 people.
