JAKARTA - List of infrastructure projects that become the priority of Indonesian government acceleration until 2019 has increased. There are 12 additional new projects, so now the total priority infrastructure project has reached 37 projects.

37 priority infrastructure projects are included in the 245 National Strategic Projects (PSN) plus two programs covering electricity projects and aircraft development industries. This information was delivered directly by Wahyu Utomo as Chairman of the Implementation Committee of the Priority Infrastructure Provision Acceleration Committee (KPPIP).

"We add 12 new projects, so there are a total of 37 priority projects," said Wahyu as reported from industry.co.id (22/6/2017)

12 additional projects which included in the priority infrastructure are Probolinggo-Banyuwangi Toll Road, Yogyakarta-Bawen Toll Road, Jakarta Public Railways and Mulut Tambang Power Plants (Sumsel, Jambi, Riau, Kaltim, Kaltara).

In addition, Gas and Steam Power Plant (PLTGU) in 16 Provinces, Abadi WK Masela Field in Maluku, Field Unit of Gas Jambaran-Tiung Biru in East Java, Indonesian Deepwater Development (IDD) in East Kalimantan and Development of Tangguh Train 3 in Papua. Not only that, there is also SPAM project in Jatiluhur, Bandar Lampung SPAM project and waste energy project in eight cities, namely Jakarta, Tangerang, Bandung, Semarang, Solo, Surabaya, Denpasar and Makassar.

KPPIP was previously mandated to oversee 30 priority infrastructure projects expected to be completed by 2019, but based on evaluation and selection through eight key criteria, five projects must be dropped. The projects include "High Voltage Direct Current" (HVDC), South Sumatra Mine Power Plant 9 and 10, Hydroelectric power plant (PLTA) Karangkates IV (250 MW), PLTA Kesamben (37 MW) and PLTA Lodoyo (10 MW).

"These five projects are out because they cannot reach the construction process before 2018," said Wahyu.
