Turkey Eyes Geothermal Power Plants in Indonesia

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Rida Mulyana, director general of new, renewable energy and energy conservation at the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry, said Turkish company Hitay Energy Holding is conducting studies on potential geothermal power plants in Indonesia.

“They are conducting surveys in eight working areas,” said Ridha on Sunday.

All of the areas surveyed are in Sumatera and the result of the survey is estimated to finish in December this year.

Ridha continued that no Chinese investors have been interested in new and renewable energy power plants. China likely does not know the development of the environmentally energy industry. American investors, such as Chevron, however, are interested in new and renewable energy sector.

The government targets to auction 26 geothermal working areas by 2019. For this year, 10 working areas have been auctioned by the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry.

Ridha said geothermal power plants could produce energy seven years after the project execution. For exploration, geothermal power plants need three to five years. “That doesn’t include facilities, installation and commissioning.”
