Global Innovation Ecosystem:

  • In a country with 250 million people and more than 17,000 islands, electricity, transportation, and healthcare are crucial to the economic growth. GE’s innovation in Gas and Steam turbines, and Gas engines have powered more than 20% of the total power plants in the country
  • More than 650 of our highly efficient jet engines are installed on Garuda Indonesia’s and Lion Air’s fleets, two of the biggest airlines in the country, connecting the islands and contributing to trade and tourism in Indonesia.
  • This fleet of aircraft translates into this factoid - every 68 seconds, a GE powered airplane takes off from Indonesia.
  • We have been supporting Indonesia’s railway since 1953. Now more than 350 GE locomotives transport 220 million people annually.
  • In the Indonesian archipelago, bringing healthcare to remote areas can be a challenge. GE introduced a portable ultrasound device (Vscan Access), adapted locally with a user interface in Bahasa Indonesia for use by medical general practitioners in remote areas of the country. This ultra sound equipment enables medical practitioners in remote areas to quickly detect abnormalities and refer patients to nearest hospitals in case of emergency, which can help in reducing maternal and infant mortality rates in the country. A pilot program study that was conducted in 2011 showed that the clinics that are equipped with V Scan have twice as many deliveries at the clinics and 40% reduction in high risk home births. Note: These results have not been released, pending MOH approval.

Supplier Ecosystem and SME development:

  • GE and Barata Indonesia signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to collaborate on manufacturing parts and provide services for GE’s aero derivatives, heavy duty gas turbines, boilers for coal-fired power plants, and renewable energy solutions.
  • Our Batam manufacturing facility produces subsea wellheads, surface wellheads, vertical christmas trees, tubular products and connectors that are used in oil and gas exploration and production. 92% of the equipment manufactured are exported to customers in the Middle East, Russia, China, Europe, Australia, Japan, and ASEAN.
  • The Turbine Services facility in Bandung is recognized globally as a COE Global Repair shop for
  • stationary parts of B/E class gas turbines. 80% of the components that are repaired in the facility are from customers outside of Indonesia (from Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia and Australia) and 80% of consumable parts used for repairing the turbines are sourced from more than 100 local suppliers.
  • As all technicians and engineers working in Batam, Surabaya and Bandung plants are Indonesians, this means that more than 1,300 Indonesians are employed, either directly by GE or by its vendors, as part of the international supply chain.

We invest in people:

GE Indonesia has received several awards for its contribution for the local community. Among these are: “MURI” Indonesia record for the highest number of women examined in a one-day pregnancy and maternal health drive in Palembang; the “Millennium Development Award, Indonesia” awarded twice (first in 2008 for the financial literacy program aiding disadvantaged women and second in 2012 for clean-water piping project for Yogyakarta villages post-Merapi volcanic eruption).

GE also partners with customers in various citizenship activities. In 2012, GE partnered with Garuda Indonesia to renovate an early education facility in Lombok Island in eastern Indonesia. This project won the GE Volunteers Impact Award in 2013.

  • Employee Training:Globally, GE invests $1 billion each year on training and education, making us the world’s best company for leaders in 2015.
