Indonesia and Denmark are cooperating through an Environmental Support Programme, with the current third programme phase (ESP3) running from 2013 to 2017 (pilot projects to 2018). The overall ESP3 development objective is to support the Government of Indonesia (GoI) in reconciling economic growth with sustainable development through improved environmental management and climate change mitigation and adaptation.
Our consortium has been awarded the contract under the ESP3 to perform a feasibility study and a preliminary engineering design for a Photovoltaic (PV) Power Plant that is capable of providing 24/7 operation of electricity to the three identified islands; Nyamuk, Parang and Genting in the Karimunjawa Archipelago in Central Java Province of Indonesia.
The assignment has been formulated based on the findings of a pre-feasibility study that investigated the opportunity to install some renewable energy systems on the 3 Islands in the archipelago. The pre-feasibility study concluded that a scenario of 100% photovoltaic for 24 hours load is the best scenario to meet the energy demands of the three islands which currently face a deficit leading to the electricity supply being limited to just 6 hours a day.
We embarked this project together with our partners IT Power Consulting (UK) and Contained Energy (Indonesia).
