Indonesia’s industry Association AP3I (Asosiasi Perusahaan Pracetak dan Prategang Indonesia) hosted a half-day function in their Beton Innovation Forum event series on 12 December 2023, dedicated to share insights, explore innovative approaches in Precast & Prestressed Manufacturing and to network and exchange among the participants.
The background for the event is clear: Infrastructure development is vital for every country, from the national to the local level. Concrete is a key construction material, with precast and prestressed concrete offering efficiency, durability, and environmental benefits in various projects. Indonesia is actively advancing its infrastructure, including the significant Nusantara capital city project with a budget of IDR 466 trillion (approx. USD 33 billion). The Ministry of Public Works and Housing has allocated budgets of IDR 125.2 trillion (approx. USD 8.3 billion) in 2023 and IDR 146.98 trillion (approx. USD 9.8 billion) in 2024 for priority infrastructure development.
Among the distinguished speakers of the event was also RATEC Asia Director Raymond Chan, who presented on „DfMA in Concrete Precast and Modular Production“.
As a leading supplier of formwork solutions for precast concrete production with customers all over the world, it is important for us to be in close contact with all those involved in the precast concrete industry - whether as manufacturers, construction companies or real estate developers. Therefore, we are always motivated to support industry associations and engage in meetings and events, where we can share insights and news from the perspective of a formwork supplier.
In Indonesia we have a history of supplying our magnetic formwork solutions to precasters, and we have installed an Upcrete® battery system for the production of façade elements for one of the country’s leading construction companies.
