Korea East-West Power (EWP) said on Dec. 23 that it has signed a business agreement with the University of ULM (Universitas Lambung Mangkurat) in Banjarmasin, a city in the southern Indonesian province of Kalimantan.
Attending the signing ceremony of the agreement were Kim Jin-tae, head of the Indonesian corporation of EWP, and ULM University President Sutarto Hadi and faculty members.
The ULM university consists of 11 departments, including engineering department, with a total of 29,000 students attending, and is the top university in the Kalimantan region, which has topped the Kalimantan universities’ evaluation list for the past five years.
Under the agreement, EWP plans to support training in the field of practical equipment and power generation technology to strengthen ULM engineering students' employment capabilities, and expects to contribute to fostering technical talent in areas near the power plant in the southern Kalimantan run by EWP.
"I am confident that the support and cooperation of EWP will greatly help the ULM University develop its talent," an ULM university official said. "This will be another platform for the growth of ULM university."
Meanwhile, EWP completed the construction of the Kalsel-1 power plants (total capacity of 200MW) in the Tanjung area of Kalimantan on Dec. 14, responsible for 20 percent of the regional power system, and is making great contributions to stabilizing the power supply, as well as making efforts to grow and coexist with the surrounding areas through cooperation with the local university.
