Jakarta (ANTARA News) - German company Siemens Energy Sector is studying the possibility of taking part in the governments program in the electricity sector.

The government has a program to build power plants with a total capacity of 35,000 megawatts until 2019.

Member of the board of management of Siemens Lisa Davis met Vice President M. Jusuf Kalla on Tuesday discussing Siemens interest in taking part in carrying out the program.

Lisa said Siemens has long been venturing in Indonesia taking part in the government development program especially in development of power plants.

She also expressed interest in cooperating with the state power utility company PLN in building power plants.

"We discussed a lot of things in the energy sector such as in power generating plant, power transmission facility and distribution of power," she said.

She said involvement of Siemens in the 35,000 MW electric program would open many jobs in the country.

Siemens has produced electrical components and Indonesia is a potential market for the products.

"We see Indonesia a potential market for our manufactured products. That is the reason for our interest in cooperation with the Indonesian government," she added.

German Ambassador Georg Witschel, who accompanied Lisa at the meeting with the vice president, said Germany will also be ready to offer help for Indonesia in the implementation of its programs including in its electricity program.
