Get on the Bus

Transportation around the world is going electric, and that is also true at Kideco’s mine site in Paser, East Kalimantan. We are collaborating with PT Mobil Anak Bangsa (MAB), an Indonesian electric vehicle (EV) startup, to roll out a fleet of electric buses for employee transportation at our site.

This makes Kideco one of the first companies in Kalimantan to start using electric buses for operations, and is one of several ongoing efforts to decarbonize in line with our sustainability commitments and our wider goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.

The MAB type MD 12E NF buses can travel up to 250 kilometers on a single charge. Recharging time ranges from 20 minutes up to 3 hours for a full charge.
The buses, which will ply the route between the basecamp to the office and back, are expected to reduce emissions by 160 TonCO2eq per year.
