Jakarta, September 29, 2022 – Elbike which is one of the Business Development and Marketing development projects at PT Elnusa Tbk (Elnusa) supports PT Pertamina (Persero) in the Inauguration of the Pertamina Lestari Program. Pertamina through the Pertamina Foundation in collaboration with Gadjah Mada University (UGM) inaugurated the Pertamina-UGM Forest at the Getas Field Campus, Blora, Central Java, Sunday (18/09). On this agenda, one of Elbike's products, namely the ECR3000 Bima Cross Electric Motorcycle, became one of the candidates as an operational vehicle during the forest conservation project.

The inauguration was carried out by the Secretary General of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry Bambang Hendroyono, the Chancellor of the Gadjah Mada University Prof. Ova Emilia, and Human Resources Director of PT Pertamina (Persero) Erry Sugiharto. Also witnessing, Head of the Peat and Mangrove Restoration Agency Hartono Prawiraatmadja, Blora Regent H. Arief Rohman, Ngawi Regent H. Ony Anwar Harsono, PT Pertamina (Persero) VP CSR & SMEPP Management Fajriyah Usman, Perhutani President Director Wahyu Kuncoro, and the Dean of the Faculty of Forestry UGM Sigit Sunarta.

This event was also held in commemoration of International Ozone Day. Reforestation can reduce ozone-depleting CO2 and potentially cut greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to 170,544 tons of CO2 over 10 years. Within these 10 years, operations are planned to be supported by the use of electric vehicles for control, supervision and security needs.

One of the main electric motorcycle models used is the ECR3000 Bima Cross, a dirt bike model developed by a startup assisted by Elnusa through the Agni program, named @elbikegarage. The ECR3000 Bima Cross itself is an electric motorcycle prototype developed from the previous electric bicycle ECR3000 Bima Enduro which underwent a face lift to trail mode.

This designated electric dirt bike has specifications that are classified as gahar, the kitchen is driven by an electric motor type mud drive Motor 72 Volt 3000 watts. Powered by a 72 Volts 40 Ah lithium ion BMS System battery, with a net weight of only 120 kg, this motorbike can practically go fast at a speed of 100 km / h. By setting the gear, this motor can create 38 Nm of torque which can explore the Blora forest area on various terrains, both in extreme incline conditions, muddy, areas with wild plants and sandy.

Quoted from the website www.pertamina.com, Director of Human Resources of PT Pertamina (Persero) Erry Sugiharto stated that the Pertamina-UGM forest is one of Pertamina's forest programs, which currently have a total of 267 programs with the planting of more than four million trees. This can reduce carbon emissions by 120 thousand tons of Co2eq/year, as well as empower more than 4.7 thousand people in the surrounding community. "We hope that this program can continue to be sustainable, to protect the earth and support the goal of net zero emission," explained Erry.

Elnusa Corporate Secretary Asmal Salam, said the Elnusa Elnusa Team's motorcycle is very innovative and adaptive in facing changing times for energy security and this is a form of energy conservation in the transportation sector for the realization of clean energy, clean and environmentally friendly air quality, as well as Indonesia's commitment to reduce emissions. "Strengthening the electric motorcycle industry needs to be done in response to the acceleration of the domestic battery-based electric vehicle industry." Asmal said.

Of course, in the midst of dynamic changes, Elnusa continues to be adaptive in responding to the challenges of energy transition. Creating innovation is a step in an effort to protect the earth from the impact of emissions and to maintain the company's sustainability in the future. For this reason, the presence of the Elbike as an electric vehicle and prototype electric motor is expected to be able to uphold the company's commitment to continue to develop the capability and capacity of energy services.
