  • Voith wins contract for two Indonesian small hydro plants

    Indonesia Map

    Voith Hydro has been awarded contracts to supply electromechanical equipment for two small hydropower projects in Indonesia’s West Java province.

    Included are orders for the 8.8-MW Pusaka 1 and 3-MW Pusaka 3, both of which were awarded by PT Pembangkitan Pusaka Parahiangan, a subsidiary of Indonesian energy producer PT Medco Power.

    Per the contract, Voith will supply four turbines and generators, automation systems, as well as other balance-of-plant equipment. The company said the turbines will be manufactured in its small hydro facility in Vadodara, Gujarat, India.

    Voith said Indonesia’s demand for electricity is increasing by about 10% each year and is projected to triple by 2030. Currently, only about two-thirds of the country’s population has constant access to the grid.

    Indonesia has emphasized hydroelectric power as a means of increasing the country’s energy supply, with as much as 75,000 MW of cumulative potential still untapped. Overall, the country has said it hopes to generate as much as 25% of its total energy supply with renewable sources by 2025.
