Campaign Story

PLN (Indonesia State-Owned Electricity Company) ordered the installation of I-GSW HV or commonly known as Lightning protection for 49 of their electricity towers in Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara. The work order has been received by PT. Tesla Daya Elektrika (“Tesla”).

FX Risk

This campaign is denominated in Indonesia Rupiah (IDR), and therefore impacts non-Indonesian Investors who have to bear FX risk should there be a depreciation in the IDR.

Mitigation Measure: There will be no exchange rate guarantee given or currency hedging done for investors. Instead, a higher projected ROI has been negotiated with the project company to account for exchange rate risks. The given projected ROI is the final returns investors should take into their consideration.

Payment Risk

PLN will transfer the payment to Tesla’s bank account within 3 months after the handover report has been signed and the invoices are issued. There is a risk of delayed payment from PLN during the handover process.

Mitigation Measure: Tesla has worked with PLN several times before and PLN has proven to have a good track record with payments. It usually takes 3 months to complete such projects and the repayment is settled in 2-3 months after project completion. This project’s completion and repayment is expected in 6 months, however, Ethis has added a 3 months buffer to be safe, making the tenor of the campaign as 9 months.

Supply Risk

The lightning protection materials is not common material that is sold in the market.

Mitigation Measure: Tesla is the sole distributor of DEHN Arrester (Germany) products, which is the market leader in lightning protection products in the world.
