Indonesia and Iran sign energy MoU

Indonesia is exploring the possibility of collaborating with Iranian energy company MAPNA.

The move follows a visit to MAPNA’s power factories in Tehran by Indonesia’s Energy Minister Ignasius Jonan.

Jonan toured MAPNA’s companies Turbine Engineering and Manufacturing, Generator Engineering and Manufacturing, and Turbine Blade Compnay, where he viewed the manufacture of gas, steam, and wind turbines, mobile power plants, generators, and turbine blades and vanes.

He was accompanied by Sofyan Basir, president director of Indonesian state-owned electricity company PLN.

Earlier MAPNA chief executive Abbas Aliabadi and Mr Basir signed a memorandum of understanding in Tehran.

“The MoU lays the groundwork for MAPNA’s presence in Indonesia and the larger Southeast Asia region” said Khalil Behbahani, chief executive of MAPNA Investment Division.

MAPNA has carried out O&M services in Indonesia, particularly at Belawan power plant in northern Sumatra.

The company is currently building the 3000 MW gas-fired Rumaila power plant in Najaf, southern Iraq.
