USTDA Promotes Geothermal Power Development In Indonesia (News Release)

Today, the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) awarded a $546,766 grant to PT Teknosatria Energi Geothermal (TEG) to partially fund a feasibility study for a 30 MWe geothermal power project at the Cibuni site in West Java, Indonesia. TEG is a private Indonesian company established to develop the geothermal project and is part of the PT Satria Gemareksa group.

The USTDA grant will allow TEG to refine its Cibuni geothermal resource model using specialized U.S. modeling tools to finalize production well plans, assess power plant siting conditions and technology options, and prepare preliminary engineering designs for the surface gathering system and power plant to facilitate engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) planning for the project. Once operating, the Cibuni geothermal power plant will produce about 236.5 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually, meeting the power needs of over 400,000 Indonesian citizens using clean, renewable energy.
