Pertamina NRE – Huawei Develops First PLTS Innovation Center in Indonesia


Pertamina New & Renewable Energy (Pertamina NRE) and Huawei kicked off the Joint Innovation Center (JIC) for the first PLTS in Indonesia on Monday (19/12).

During the event, the CEO of Pertamina NRE, Dannif Danusaputro, and the CEO of Huawei Indonesia, Liu Changseng, signed a memorandum of understanding. Previously, the two parties signed a memorandum of understanding on September 1, 2022. This step is part of Pertamina NRE’s commitment to participate in Indonesia’s new and renewable energy development.

“We face several challenges in developing PLTS, including being competitive in terms of price while still having an attractive economy. Another challenge is having to manage operations as efficiently as possible. In answering these challenges, one way is to carry out innovations,” said the Project & Operations Director of Pertamina NRE, Norman Ginting, who delivered his remarks at the event. He continued that Pertamina NRE welcomed the cooperation in developing the Joint Innovation Center with Huawei.

On the same occasion, Liu said, “Through the Joint Innovation Center Pertamina NRE and Huawei, it is hoped that it will be a forum for increasing knowledge and a means for promoting the future energy business as well as becoming concrete evidence for other parties regarding the Best Practice of PV SYSTEM itself.”

Pertamina NRE is actively developing renewable energy, one of which is PLTS. In terms of price, PLTS in Indonesia needs to be more competitive. The JIC program is expected to increase competitiveness, efficiency, and safety as well as security standards in the company. This non-binding and non-exclusive collaboration will have three focuses. First is capability development, where later there will be a capability-building program delivered by experts in their fields related to the Solar PV operational and maintenance aspects. The second is to develop innovation in the PLTS engineering & operational. Thus, it is expected to optimize PLTS operational performance and improve operational efficiency. The third is to develop and set technological standards to improve safety quality in PLTS operation and management.

Huawei, as a global technology solution company in the PLTS sector, is committed to producing high-tech products in the electricity sector that are environmentally friendly, especially PLTS. Huawei Indonesia continues to commit to encouraging the EBT in Indonesia. Huawei will integrate digital technology and renewable energy and provide products and solutions in friendly renewable energy, electricity-based transportation, greener information and communication technology infrastructure, and technology-based energy in an integrated manner through its subsidiary Huawei Digital Power.

To support the net zero emissions target in 2060, Pertamina NRE has several clean energy business portfolios. Besides PLTS, Pertamina NRE is also developing a geothermal managed by its subsidiary, Pertamina Geothermal Energy (PGE), biogas energy, nature-based solutions (NBS), batteries for EV and storage systems, as well as the carbon business. As a sub-holding of Pertamina, Pertamina NRE is the lead in building Pertamina’s green business. Pertamina NRE is also strongly committed to environmental, social, and governance aspects in managing its business.
