Hendra Soetjipto Tan, Star Energy Geothermal Salak-Darajat (SEGS/SEGD) president director, talks to The Oil and Gas Year (TOGY) about the company’s ongoing developments and geothermal aspirations. Star Energy, operates in Indonesia’s energy sector as one of the largest geothermal companies in the world producing 875 MW of electricity.

“It is a very challenging target for us to grow to 1.2 GW in 10 years. From our three geothermal assets, we generate 227 MW from Wayang Windu, 377 MW from Salak and 271 from Darajat. That adds up to 875 MW and that is where we are today. To grow to 1.2 GW, we will expand the capacity of current geothermal assets and develop two new concessions: Hamiding in the Maluku Islands and South Sekincau in Sumatra. Both areas have very big resources and are among the best geothermal resources available in Indonesia.”
