PT Bukit Asam Tbk (PTBA), a member of the Mining BUMN holding MIND ID, through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) provided training in optimizing pumping based on Solar Power Plants (PLTS) to 16 PLTS operators, Monday-Tuesday, 13-14 June 2022 at the Training and Education Center PTBA Tanjung Enim Center.

However, there are obstacles that arise how to maintain PLTS equipment that has been built and installed so that it can last for a long period of time. For this reason, regular maintenance is necessary.

As is known, this program is very, very in line with the vision and mission of the company, Indonesia and the world, namely to realize green energy.
