Energy management project in Indonesia

PT. Krakatau Daya Listrik (KDL), an energy supplier for the government-controlled PTKS group in Indonesia, chose Honeywell Process Solutions to implement energy management and monitoring solutions to help with the company's long-term savings.

Honeywell announced that PT. Krakatau Daya Listrik (KDL), a subsidiary of PT. Krakatau Steel Group (PTKS Group), has selected Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) to implement energy management and monitoring solutions which will help it get long-term cost savings through greater energy efficiency. KDL will implement the selected HPS solutions at PTKS Group’s facilities.

KDL is the primary supplier of electrical power for the government-owned PTKS Group, which is the largest steel maker in Indonesia with a combined maximum steel capacity of 2.45 million tons per year and is Southeast Asia’s largest integrated steel producer.

PTKS consumes a significant amount of energy (including electrical power, natural gas and industrial gases) due to its large production capacity. Implementing HPS’ Energy Management Service allows KDL to effectively monitor, manage and control its energy consumption without affecting the levels of productivity at PTKS’ facilities. This meticulous monitoring helps KDL achieve the best possible energy use, so lowering its overall operational expenses.

“Providing energy for such a large-scale production is not an easy task, as we often run into high costs. By implementing HPS’ proven solutions, we will be able to control and monitor energy usage, which ultimately helps us reduce those costs significantly in the long run,” said Wisnu Kuncoro, President Director, KDL. “We chose Honeywell Process Solutions because of their previous experience in handling energy management projects and their in-depth knowledge of the steel manufacturing industry.”

“Often, energy expenses are considered a fixed cost due to their substantial share of operating expenditures,” said Tony Cosgrove, vice president sales, Asia Pacific, Honeywell Process Solutions. “With our Energy Management Service, KDL will now be able to gain a competitive edge as they are able to fully control their energy supply chain and achieve energy savings. We look forward to strengthening our relationship with the Krakatau Steel Group and work on even greater projects in the future.”
