The Mahakam Training Center SPS site was built in 2000. Pertamina Hulu Mahakam, Indonesia’s state-owned energy company, uses the facility for training purposes.
Aligned with its commitment to conserve natural resources in its operational and supporting activities, Pertamina Hulu Mahakam built resource-efficient technologies into the office building. A variable refrigerant volume cooling system and energy-saving lighting were installed to reduce energy use, while dual-flush water closets and low-flow faucets were installed to reduce water use. These resulting energy and water savings also help reduce the building’s operating costs.
The Mahakam Training Center SPS has received Final EDGE Certification by the Green Building Council of Indonesia.
