JAKARTA: PT Truba Jaya Engineering, the subsidiary firm of PT Truba Alam Manunggal Engineering Tbk, this year has gained US$114.9 million contracts exceeding the targeted US$100 million.

Corporate Secretary of Truba Alam Manunggal Gamala Virasa Katoppo said as from US$114.9 million of the contract total value, US$98.9 million comes from the contract with Chevron for oil and gas project in Riau.

"The remaining US$16 million is the mining construction contract in East Kalimantan. We have started to work on the last contract from May 2010 and finish by 2012," he said in Jakarta yesterday.

Truba is the subsidiary of Truba Alam Manunggal through its subsidiary, PT Manunggal Infrasolusi, with 96 percent shares ownership, PT Multi Energi Persada with 2.33 percent, and PT Kurnia Unggul Sejahtera 1.67 percent.

Gamala added Truba this year allocates IDR31 billion capital expenditure. The figure here is not much given that the massive capital expenditure has been done in 2007-2008 with US$80 million budgets.

Some IPP (indepen-dent power producer) contracts include the 250 megawatt power plant project in Bangka and 60 megawatt project in Pontianak. Both projects are on renegotiation with PLN.
