GM Office PT Pertamina (Persero) RU III Plaju
The new General Manager’s office at the PT Pertamina (Persero) Refinery Unit III in Plaju sits on the banks of the Musi river. The leadership of Pertamina, Indonesia’s state-owned energy company, will utilize the river-front offices.
Aligned with its commitment to cut energy consumption in its operational and supporting activities, Pertamina designed the General Manager’s office to conserve natural resources. Energy-saving lighting, external shading devices and the installation of solar photovoltaics reduce the building’s energy use by half, while low-flow faucets and dual-flush water closets contribute to the reduction of the building’s water use.
As an oil, gas and renewable energy provider, Pertamina has brought energy solutions to Indonesia for more than 60 years. The company is committed to diversifying its energy offerings with the exploration, development, production and optimization of renewable energy.
The GM Office PT Pertamina (Persero) RU III Plaju has received EDGE Advanced certification from the Green Building Council Indonesia.
