Energy Management Division of PT Siemens Indonesia and PT Krakatau Daya Listrik, the subsidiary of PT Krakatau Steel (Persero) Tbk., have since September 2016 forged a strategic partnership in testing and repair of transformers in Indonesia. Following the partnership agreement, Energy Management Division of PT Siemens Indonesia and PT Krakatau Daya Steel hold technical workshop on January 24-25, 2017, aimed at building the capacity of human resources of both companies and also strengthening the partnership strategy to penetrate the market.

“During the training we will introduce several Siemens’ services/after sales services portfolio for transformers in relation to the testing and repairs business in Indonesia. We consider the training as important for both sides to develop business for testing and repair transformers. Siemens Indonesia is highly committed to being pioneer in supporting the domestic manufacturing industry,” said Josef Winter, President Director and CEO of Siemens Indonesia.

The partnership further asserts Siemens' commitment to ensuring the know-how and technology transfer towards fully independent and localized operation in Indonesia. In light of President Joko Widodo's visit to Germany in April 2016, this commitment is well-aligned with Indonesia's aspiration to strengthen its competency and to increase the national capacity building.

To complement the technical workshop, there will be a site visit to Siemens’ Medium Voltage & Systems Factory in Pulomas, East Jakarta. Siemens will showcase many facilities which support Siemens’ business in Indonesia particularly in manufacturing air-insulated medium and low voltage systems that cater to the needs of domestic and global market.

“We hope the workshop will open business opportunity for both sides in winning the project and improving workshop utilization. In accordance with this, Siemens’ commitment to transfer of knowledge and technology will support the capacity building of our human resources, open new access to market opportunities and support the sustainability of optimum cooperation between the two parties,” said Alugoro Mulyowahyudi, President Director of Krakatau Daya listrik.

The agreement between Siemens and Krakatau Daya Listrik was signed on September 28, 2016, in Jakarta Convention Center.
