Since 2016, the Adaro Group has been developing the Adaro Water pillar to expand investment in the water treatment and sanitation sector through PT Adaro Tirta Mandiri and its subsidiaries. This was to support the Indonesian government’s development programs by taking an active part in the efforts to increase the access to clean water, which is still a challenge for the Indonesian government.
Adaro Water strives to improve its performance through investments in water treatment and slurry management as well as non-revenue water (NRW) reduction. Until the end of 2021, Adaro Water had been operating 4 (four) Water Treatment Plants (WTPs) with a total capacity of 1,270 liters per second, located in Gresik Regency (East Java), Banjar Regency (South Kalimantan), Sampit (East Kotawaringin, Central Kalimantan) and Dumai (Riau). Currently, the WTP in Dumai is focusing on completing the construction of the advanced phase with a capacity of 200 liters per second (out of a total project of 450 liters per second) after the first phase of 50 liters per second was successfully operated in 2020. In 2021, Adaro Water acquired PT Grenex Tirta Mandiri which was awarded a project to build an IPA of 200 liters per second capacity in Bekasi Regency, the construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2022. Through its subsidiary PT Adaro Wamco Prima, Adaro Water has also been running a slurry and water management business to support the activities of the companies under the Adaro Mining pillar.
In 2021, Adaro Water through its subsidiary PT Adaro Tirta Sarana started to serve Adaro Mining for dewatering management to support mining activities. In addition, at the end of 2021, Adaro Water won the tender to complete the cooperation with Perumda Tirtawening of Bandung city for the investment in non-revenue water (NRW) reduction which will focus on serving the North Bandung City area with a total capacity of 219 liters per second.
Adaro Water strives to expand its business portfolio to reach a total capacity of 4,000 liters per second in the medium term through acquisitions, public private partnerships, business-to-business partnerships and continues to participate in selected tenders.
