The State Power Corporation (PLN) admits that Guodian will provide a huge power supply system based on plans to build the world's largest ferronickel processing facility and smelter on Sulawesi.
Sumhuhuda, business manager of Sulawesi's operating area, announced in Jakarta on Saturday that Sulawesi is the world's largest nickel mine, but it has traditionally been used for mining and export. Now the government has enacted a new policy. Nickel ore is not directly exportable and Must be processed domestically. This treatment requires a large smelter and therefore requires a very large power supply.
He said: "At the same time, it will also increase the per capita electricity consumption of 1,000 kWh per person per year in China, so that China will also be closer to the per capita electricity consumption standards of developed countries."
