Indonesia is scattered amongst an archipelago of at least 17,508 islands and, because of the cost implication of building big power plants and stringing wires across the sea, supplying electricity to its 255 million people has become a huge challenge. With its industries growing at a rapid rate the Indonesian government had to look at cost effective and sustainable methods of supplying adequate electricity for future growth. Many industries, including the small business sector, have had to look at other ways of generating electricity in order to keep businesses afloat.
Karpowership’s floating powerships have become a credible solution to the country’s energy problems. There are currently four ships stationed at various islands and supplying 540 megawatts of electricity to the country’s national grid. As a result, businesses are once again able to thrive from an uninterrupted supply of electricity.
