“The cooperation that has been established between PLN and CCCC is expected to accelerate the construction of EBT generators. Thus, Indonesia will further accelerate the energy transition process,” said Darmawan.


In addition to the cooperation mentioned earlier, with the wealth of experience that CCCC has, Darmawan added, PLN can absorb knowledge from the company and discuss and collaborate in the construction of EBT infrastructure, Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) and gasification terminals.


CCCC itself is a company that has been involved in many large projects in China and abroad. Some of his biggest projects include the construction of the Hangzhou Bay bridge, the world’s largest port located in Shanghai, and the construction of the Three Gorges Dam in China.

“This cooperation agreement can increase investor confidence. Through solid cooperation between PLN and CCCC it is also hoped that we can strengthen economic relations between China and Indonesia,” Darmawan concluded.
