    ACWA Power set to enter Indonesia with two floating solar PV projects


    November 15, 2022 - Indian Manufacturing News

     

      November 15 -- ACWA Power Company, a Saudi developer, investor, and operator of power generation, water desalination and green hydrogen plants, announced that PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (Persero) or PLN, Indonesia’s sole state-owned electricity utility, has chosen the company to develop two floating solar PV projects.

      The projects will enable Indonesia to achieve its renewable energy target of 23% by 2025, under the country’s National General Energy Plan.

      This marks ACWA Power’s first foray into the Southeast Asian country and the company’s first floating solar PV projects in its portfolio. Named the Saguling Floating Solar PV project and Singkarak Floating Solar PV Project, the facilities will have a capacity of 60MWac and 50MWac, respectively and represent a combined investment value of US$105million. ACWA Power has a 49% equity stake in both projects, with the rest being held by Indonesia Power, a subsidiary of PLN.

      The offtake partner in these projects, PLN, controls, owns and operates approximately 69% generation capacity in Indonesia. It is also the sole buyer of electricity produced by independent power plants in the country, including electricity generated from renewable energy sources. As of the end of 2021, PLN controls over 64.5 GW of generation capacity in Indonesia. As a next step, PLN and ACWA Power will finalize the power purchase agreements for these projects.
