Sembcorp has been Indonesia’s partner since 1990 when we began importing piped natural gas from West Natuna as Singapore’s largest gas supplier and provided clean potable water to Batam. We also developed over 2,200 hectares of land in three industrial parks that brought in foreign investments worth US$3.5 billion and near 100,000 jobs.
As Indonesia scales up its commitment to tackling climate change, Sembcorp is looking to offer its renewable and distributed energy products across Indonesia.
Our Sembcorp Energy Indonesia team has begun operations at its Jakarta office at SCBD and was recently at the opening ceremony of Fablab Correctio, PT Jababeka Tbk’s integrated creative hub for startups and incubators. Jababeka hopes to build an ecosystem similar to Silicon Valley for start-ups, academia, businesses and the government in Cikarang, and Sembcorp is privileged to be among the first MNCs involved in this initiative.
Jen Tan, Sembcorp’s Head of Integrated Solutions and Renewables (Indonesia), was invited to join the panel discussion at the opening ceremony, to share how renewable energy plays an important role in Society 5.0, and how Sembcorp can support the nation’s pursuit of sustainable development with our suite of solutions. Mr Ridwan Kamil, the Governor of West Java, said “In 2045 Indonesia will become a country with a superpower economy. West Java with extraordinary potential is represented by Jababeka in particular, ready with infrastructure, human resources, and economy to build innovative and world-class development”.
Correctio also houses a permanent Sembcorp showcase featuring life-sized rooftop solar photovoltaic and balance-of-system components on site. Visitors are also able to view our suite of sustainable solutions on our corporate videos and see some of them in detail through our miniature scale models.
