04 Mar 2018

In an effort to support the progress of the Indonesian automotive world, PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero) will synergize with PT Mobil Anak Bangsa (MAB) to present a service that is modern, efficient and environmentally friendly.

The cooperation agreement or Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) includes the testing of the operation of electric buses (low deck) in the airside area and on the landside of Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.

The signing of this cooperation was carried out by the Daily Executive (Ph.) Executive General Manager of Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, Agus Haryadi who represented PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero) with PT MAB's President Director General TNI (Ret) Leonard in Jakarta, Saturday 3 March 2018.

PT Angkasa Pura II (Persero) 's President Director Muhammad Awaluddin explained, "Through this collaboration, AP II officially became the first BUMN in Indonesia to use an innovative vehicle of the nation' s work which is in line with the spirit and commitment of the corporation to always support children's work. nation".

"In addition, this collaboration is clearly a form of positive synergy that not only can develop the business of each company, but also can make a positive contribution to the country", said Awaluddin.

The electric bus by PT MAB has a capacity of 60 people per unit and is capable of driving up to 300km / hour with electric charging intervals in just 3 hours. With the use of non-fossil fuel, this means that the transportation mode is environmentally friendly.

The environmental issue itself is one of the corporate concerns where the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in 2014 received the Airport Carbon Accreditation at the initial level, Mapping by the Airport Council International (ACI), where level Mapping is a carbon footprint to find out how much carbon emissions at an airport.

The accreditation of Soekarno-Hatta International Airport can be increased to the next level, namely Reduction, then to Level Optimization and the highest level, namely Neutrality.

Based on corporate data in 2014, it is known that the volume of carbon emissions at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport is 137,145 tons from electricity, fuel, gas & activities that cannot be controlled by the airport.

"The operation of the electric bus at Soekarno-Hatta is the right strategy and step in reducing carbon emissions, especially those from BBM and the application of the green airport concept and sustainable environment like other world-class airports," Awaluddin added.

"We also hope that by utilizing this environmentally friendly technology, Soekarno-Hatta International Airport can reach the Airport Carbon Accreditation from ACI at the next level to become Reduction", concluded Awaluddin.
