Pertamina to develop mini hydro power plants

State oil and gas firm PT Pertamina and PT Tirta Gemah Ripah are working on a three-year project to develop mini-hydro power plants (PTLM) in West Java.

“Studies will be conducted in a number of locations in Cianjur and Tasikmalaya, both in West Java, each with a potential of producing 4-5 megawatts [MW],” Pertamina gas director Hari Karyuliarto said in a press statement over the weekend.

“The development of PLTM will be in line with the governments’ target to increase the portion of renewable energy production by 25.9 percent in 2025,” he said after signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on the project.

The MoU was signed by Hari and Johan Romadhon, president director of the West Java administration-owned company.
