A leading Indonesian power company PT Pembangkitan Jawa Bali (PJB) is seeking opportunities to expand its operations in Oman and the Middle East markets.
The Indonesian embassy in Muscat on Monday hosted a virtual meeting with PJB to present investment potential in Oman’s energy sector, especially in electricity. This meeting was a follow-up to the Indonesia-Oman Business Forum webinar organised by the Indonesian embassy on June 17, according to a press statement issued by the embassy. In his remarks during the webinar, Oman’s Minister of Energy and Minerals H E Mohammed bin Hamad al Rumhi invited Indonesian companies to invest in the sultanate’s energy sector.
‘As part of its global vision, PJB is seeking the opportunity to expand its business overseas, including in the Middle East. PJB is keen to share its expertise, especially in operation and maintenance of the power generation plants,’ the Indonesian embassy’s statement said.
Indonesia’s ambassador to Oman Mohamad Irzan Djohan convinced PJB’s president Gong Matua Hasibuan about the support and readiness of the Indonesian embassy in Muscat to help the company to achieve its vision in Oman. With the sultanate’s growing economy and rising power demand, Oman’s power transmission and distribution infrastructure is expected to witness significant growth.
