    Royal HaskoningDHV, TIRASA Agreement

    An agreement signed recently by consultancy Royal HaskoningDHV and renewable energy developer PT Bhakti Putra Bangsa (TIRASA) will see the parties collaborate in developing a total of 100 MW of small hydropower in Indonesia within the next five years.

    The Head of Cooperation Agreement, signed in the presence of Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and Indonesian Chamber of Commerce chair Suryo Sulisto, could benefit as many as 350,000 people.

    A 2012 report said Indonesia's power generating capacities are insufficient, currently producing enough energy for 66% of the country's needs. The deficiency means more than 86 million Indonesians still lack basic access to electricity, Royal HaskoningDHV said, with daily blackouts common.

    World Bank data also emphasizes the need for electricity in Indonesia, with a 2011 report showing the country as ranking 161st out of 183 surveyed with regard to the ease of obtaining reliable power for business.

    "This is something which is much needed in Indonesia," TIRASA President Director Suryana Padma said.

    Other hydropower projects currently being developed in Indonesia including the 1,030-MW Upper Cisokan, an 88-MW project in Aceh province, 187-MW Jatluhur, and 90-MW Karebbe, among others.
