PT Ceria Nugraha Indotama (Ceria) is a mining company, established on March 18th, 1992 based on the Notary Certificate No. 29 issued by Mestariany Habie, SH in Ujung Pandang, Indonesia.
Ceria operates a large laterite nickel mine on a 6785 hectare mining lease known as Lapaopao Block in Wolo sub-district of Kolaka in the Southeast Sulawesi province, Indonesia.
The world’s demand for cobalt is expected to grow steadily following the aggressive development of electric vehicles which uses cobalt as their rechargeable batteries.
Ceria will build its own 350-megawatt coal-fired power plant and will purchase a 350-megawatt power from an environmentally clean gas-fired power plant owned and operated by the state electricity company – PLN.

I have joined PT Ceria Nugraha Indotama since November 27, 2017 as Transhipment Admin, with the responsibility of presenting loading activity report data to the realization of nickel ore sales. The existence of Ceria certainly brings many changes to the local community, both from the social aspect and the community’s economic development aspect. Hopefully, Ceria will complete the construction of the Smelter plant soon and become a world-class and sustainable nickel mining company.
It has been 3 years since I joined PT Ceria Nugraha Indotama as a Mine Operation Supervisor. During my work at Ceria I find it manageable to coordinate my work and to have mutual understanding with the team, which is the key to success in achieving production targets while prioritizing work safety. I feel grateful and proud to be part of the history of PT Ceria Nugraha Indotama.
