PTPP Projects Third Quarter 2012 Net Profit to Jump 73%

Jakarta, Indonesia, Nov 12, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - PT PP (Persero) Tbk (IDX: PTPP), a leading Indonesian construction and investment company, projected its Net Profit through the third quarter of 2012 at Rp.105,4 billion, growing 73% as compared to Rp.60,9 billion for the same period last year. The growth resulted from an increase in revenues of 34% and with the support of innovation and efficiency programs continually implemented by the company.

A Certified Public Accountant is auditing the complete Financial Statements in relation to the company's plan to issue Bonds in the first quarter of next year.

The greatest contribution to the revenues of the company came from the construction sector followed by the EPC sector, while in terms of project ownership, business came from Government and State-Owned Enterprises(81%) and the private sector (19%).

New contracts through September 2012 amounting to Rp.15,2 trillion included Surabaya Educity Apartment, Pluit Landmark, Kualanamu Airport, Muara Labuh - Sumatra Geothermal Power Plant (PLTP) and 100 MW Gas-Turbine Power Plant EPC project in Duri Pekanbaru, Sumatra, Jalan Papua. The largest gain derived from PT Pelindo II for the "New Tanjung Priok" or Kalibaru port project, amounting to Rp.8,2 trillion.

In the EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) sector, the company executed several Power Plant and Mining projects including a 65 MW Gas-Fired Power Plant (PLTG) in Talang Duku Palembang, a 2x7 MW Steam Power Plant (PLTU) in Central Lampung, a 3X40 MW Combined Gas-Steam Power Plant (PLTGU) in KDL Cilegon, a 100 MW Gas-Turbine Power Plant (PLTMG) in Duri Riau and a 90 MW Gas-Turbine Power Plant (PLTMG) in Sei Gelam Jambi, the first micro-gas-turbine power plant project ever in Indonesia, to be completed in May 2014. The executed EPC in the Mining sector include Jetty, Barge Loader & Conveyor - Jembayan, Serakaman Sebuku, and Berau Coal Suaran, all of which are located in Kalimantan.

For the result of investment of the company in the 65 MW Gas-Fired Power Plant (PLTG) in Talang Duku Palembang, the company participated by contributing electricity during the Sea Games event sometime ago, and the recurring income from the project was realized this year.

The company's participation in infrastructure development is considerably high, including the construction of 6 Airports, i.e. Sepinggan Airport in Balikpapan, Ngurah Rai Airport in Bali, Juata Airport in Samarinda, Sultan Taha Airport in Jambi, Supadio Airport in Pontianak, and Kualanamu Airport in Medan for an Airport Railway Station package, and the construction of seaports, such as Bayur Bay in Western Sumatra, Lamong Bay in East Java, Kariangau Pier in Kalimantan, New Tanjung Priok in Jakarta and some highways.

"Our growth strategy focuses on the growing performance of four business pillars: Construction, Property, EPC and Investment with the support of innovation and efficiency program, development of Human Resources, sound financial condition, risk management and implementation of Good Corporate Governance", explained Bambang Triwibowo, the President Director of PT PP.

The buzz continues for cloud, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their collective impact across all industries. But a new conversation is emerging - how do companies use industry disruption and technology enablers to lead in markets undergoing change, uncertainty and ambiguity? Organizations of all sizes need to evolve and transform, often under massive pressure, as industry lines blur and merge and traditional business models are assaulted and turned upside down. In this new data-driven world, marketplaces reign supreme while interoperability, APIs and applications deliver un...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
Electric power utilities face relentless pressure on their financial performance, and reducing distribution grid losses is one of the last untapped opportunities to meet their business goals. Combining IoT-enabled sensors and cloud-based data analytics, utilities now are able to find, quantify and reduce losses faster – and with a smaller IT footprint. Solutions exist using Internet-enabled sensors deployed temporarily at strategic locations within the distribution grid to measure actual line loads.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, along with new ways to engage with users.
The IoT is upon us, but today’s databases, built on 30-year-old math, require multiple platforms to create a single solution. Data demands of the IoT require Big Data systems that can handle ingest, transactions and analytics concurrently adapting to varied situations as they occur, with speed at scale. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chad Jones, chief strategy officer at Deep Information Sciences, will look differently at IoT data so enterprises can fully leverage their IoT potential. He’ll share tips on how to speed up business initiatives, harness Big Data and remain one step ahead by apply...

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...
Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...
