Indonesia: Opportunity to Develop 200 MW Graho Nyambu Geothermal Project

Island focus: Merangin eyes funds for geothermal plant (The Jakarta Post)

The local administration is set to hold a tender for investors to develop a geothermal power plant in Graho Nyambu, Merangin regency, Jambi. 

Regent H. Al Haris said on Thursday that the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry had opened up opportunities for investors to develop the area. He expected the tender to be held immediately.

According to Haris, geothermal energy in Graho Nyambu had the potential to generate approximately 200 MW of electricity, meaning the program could light up villages across the regency.

The Merangin administration is currently making efforts to achieve energy self-reliance through the power supply program.
