Karpowership, PAL to build power ships to light up Indonesia

Karpowership Indonesia, which operates floating power plants, has sealed a cooperation deal with state-owned ship builder PAL Indonesia to manufacture power ships with a total capacity of 5,000 megawatts (MW).

The subsidiary of a Turkey-based company will transfer the power ship technology to PAL ranging from installation, construction and design to procurement and maintenance.

“The aim is to cooperate with PAL for the transfer of technology, for the local-content increase, so power ships can become a solution for Indonesia,” Karpowership CEO Orhan Remzi Karadeniz told journalists in Jakarta on Friday.

Karpowership has supplied power ships to provide electricity in remote areas of the country such as Amarang, North Sulawesi. “We will continue delivering power ships to Ambon, Lombok, Kupang and Medan in the next couple of months,” he said.

PAL president director Muhammad Firmansyah Arifin said the collaboration could support the government’s ambitious program to generate an extra 35,000 MW of electricity for the nation within five years.

“Floating power plants are very suitable for Indonesia, which consists of many islands. We will first learn about the technical and management aspects from them and build the vessels soon,” he said, adding that it would take about a year for PAL to build a power ship.
