Strategic investment by JR New Horizons to support the energy transition in Asia!

May 2024
Small Scale LNG Plant in Indonesia

We are announcing a strategic alliance with Tokyo Gas and Super Energy, both publicly listed companies, marking a significant step towards our aim to realize energy infrastructure projects in Asia. This investment, which happened already at the end of last year, is a testament to our strengths and a landmark achievement in our mission of shaping the industrial sphere with meaningful strategic investments.

Focusing on Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) processing, this joint venture will boost our regional presence and play a pivotal role in the energy sector, particularly in supporting Indonesia's transition to greener energy solutions!

We are happy to have our sister-company Rieckermann deliver the Liquefaction as a turn-key provider, including state-of-the-art technology, engineering packages and technical services.

About the Project:

The project is one of the first small-scale LNG infrastructures set to supply gas to remote areas in Indonesia. It stands as evidence of Rieckermann’s commitment to the growth and development of Indonesia’s energy market under the country’s National Gas Policy Map 2016 – 2030.
The Rieckermann Group secured the project through decades of experience in the Indonesian market and industry expertise, coupled with a well-established organizational structure in the country and willingness to make investments locally.
The plant boasts a capacity of 7.5 MMSCFD (equivalent to 150 tons per day) and is scheduled to begin production in 2025. The facility will incorporate several key processes, including:
    - Pretreatment Unit
    - Cooling System
    - LNG Separation Unit
    - LPG Separation Unit
    - LNG & LPG storage facility
    - Loading & unloading facilities

As a full-service provider for the complete value chain of a virtual pipeline, Rieckermann helps relevant stakeholders (gas well owners, investors, transportation companies, gas traders, and gas end users) achieve their desired results.
Using LNG instead of coal or diesel brings along the advantages of a simpler and more reliable transportation to remote locations. Additionally, reduced volumes result in lower transportation costs and a smaller environmental footprint.

Strategic investment into Makula for industrial software solutions

• Strategic alliance enables further investments for Makula in product and technology
• With Makula, SME machine suppliers and dealers digitize their customer service quickly and effectively

We are excited to share that we have pursued a strategic investment into the company Makula. Makula is a developer for Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions that enable component and machinery manufacturers (OEMs) and distributors to digitalize their after-sales services, while also establishing digital touch points with their customers.

Makula is using the strategic alliance to further invest in product and technology, optimizing the features of its customer service platform and attracting more customers. Having the Rieckermann Group on board, a distributor for dozens of machine builders across 11 different industries in Asia, not only gives the startup high credibility in the market, but also opens the doors for sustainable growth faster.

"Today, the after-sales business generates a large portion of the profits for component and machinery manufacturers (OEMs) and dealers. In times of digitalization, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in particular must also constantly adapt to current developments. However, they often miss this opportunity due to lacking internal know-how, or capital expenditure," explains Flynn Seidel, responsible for Strategic Business Development at the Rieckermann Group. "Digital processes and touch points in after-sales service are becoming more important to stay relevant in the market. This is where Makula comes into play."

Increase revenue and reduce downtime with Makula platform

"The future looks more than promising as we have gained an investor and partner in the Rieckermann Group that is deeply rooted in our industry. At the same time, we share the vision of bringing Makula to the top in a sustainable way," Emkay Khan, CEO and founder of Makula, is pleased to say. "With Rieckermann's far-reaching network, we want to increase our reach and understand our customers, as well as theirs, even better."
