Highlights & Case Studies

The world's highest solar power plant

Our innovative products for energy storage systems were installed in the world’s highest solar power plant in Papua, Indonesia. They were to support the increasing demand for highly efficient energy storage, renewable power integration and grid stabilization solutions.

Substation Automation System based on IEC61850

We helped provide more reliable power supply and improve the efficiency of electricity grid in Central Java, by undertaking the uprating switchyard 150 kV and migration the existing conventional protection and control systems to our substation automation system based on IEC 61850. We were also responsible for developing main telecommunication using fiber optic and put the existing PLC as back up.

Increased productivity in pulp and paper manufacturer

ABB has supplied electrical solutions for several tissue machines for one of the leading pulp and paper companies in Indonesia. Our products and systems have enabled the paper mill to increase productivity while reducing energy consumption and optimizing energy usage. In this project, we supplied a distribution transformer, 33 kV GIS Switchgear, 3.3 kV capacitor banks, protective relay, 3.3 kV NGR, 110 VDC system, erection, supervision and commissioning.

Control systems in oil and gas industry

Our team has successfully completed the oil and gas project at two different areas in Sumatera, on PCS, ESS, FGS, and SCADA system using 800xA system, certified for SIL 2 application. We supplied the redundant control system, complete with SCADA and Remote Operator station, which can monitor the production result from Jakarta.

Alumunium smelter

We executed the total electrics of a booster rectifier system for Indonesia's only aluminum smelting company. This system has helped the stability of DC current supply to the pot lines allowing the expansion of production in North Sumatera. In this turnkey project, we supplied, installed and commissioned an Outdoor 33 kV MV Switchgear, 45 MVA Regulating and Rectifier Transformer, Rectifier System including Busbars, MCC, Power and Control Cable. We also provided on-site training for customer's operation and maintenance engineers.

Plate mill project

ABB successfully supplied a solution for the plate mill project in West Java, for one of Indonesia's leading manufacturers. We supplied transformers, MV Switchgear, process control system based upon its award winning System 800xA technology, multi-drive for two 5600 KW synchronous motors, IBA system and drive monitor for the remote access. The scope also included design, engineering, project management, installation supervision and commissioning. Our multi-drive system incorporated the common DC rail bus technology that offered improved performance.

History of Hitachi Energy in Indonesia

Since 1980s, Hitachi Energy in Indonesia has a long-standing presence, expanding footprint and proven track record in Indonesia. With approximately 300 employees, we have contributed further to the development of the country’s power infrastructure to serve its growing economy and vibrant population. 

In 2016, Hitachi Energy in Indonesia established a global software development center in Bali which is aligned with the government plan to build local competencies in Indonesia and meet government's requirements in having more local content. The center provides a number of enterprise-class software applications to keep businesses running reliably and efficiently. Our global software development center in Bali plays an important role in our global enterprise software development team.

As part of the company's strong commitment in nurturing future Indonesian talent, we have established a partnership with the Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) in 2017 to develop advanced technologies and undertake joint studies and research, in areas like integration of renewables and the digitalization of power grid.

In 2018, we inaugurated its new manufacturing unit in Tangerang which spreads over 3,400 square meters and has been designed on the principles of Lean production to manufacture air-insulated switchgear (AIS) and gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) up to 170 kV. Modern process techniques such as lean manufacturing, lean administration, just-in-time, one-piece flow, kaizen and theory of constraints are applied. The use of these new techniques helps to achieve top industry standards such as: shortest delivery times, reliable on-time delivery, highest quality level, rapid response to customer requirements, highest cost-efficiency, and best performance. Our commitment to state-of-the-art quality and environmental standards have been recognized by the ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2004 certifications for our operations, and with OHSAS 18001:2007 for the health and safety systems we have in place to protect the people we employ in Indonesia, as well as our contractors and customers affected by our activities. 

This footprint expansion underlines our ongoing commitment to Indonesia, supporting the country’s efforts to strengthen its power transmission infrastructure, enhance grid reliability and helping meet the country’s growing demand for electricity while having the commitment to be closer to serve our customers.
