SMEC has operated in Indonesia since 1970. SMEC's first project in Indonesia was a pre-feasibility study for the Larona River Hydroelectric Project on the island of Sulawesi (Celebes). The hydroelectric plant was the original power source for a nearby smelter and featured: a 7km intake canal; two radial intake control gates; a head pond; and three 1.3km penstocks. SMEC opened a permanent office in Jakarta in 1979.
Since then, SMEC has been involved in a variety of projects including a dam operation and safety improvement project, development of a bridge management system, reformation and implementation of road traffic and transport policies, implementation of the earthquake and tsunami livelihood microfinance fund and an infrastructure reconstruction enabling project. SMEC has experience in the Transport, Water, Geotechnics and Tunnels, Hydropower and Energy and Social Development sectors in Indonesia.
Most recently, SMEC has been involved in the Eastern Indonesia National Road Improvement Project. The aim of the project is to improve national road links and to provide acceptable standards of service and accessibility to support local and regional economic development. The program includes 4,300km of roads and 14 steel truss bridges.
