Indonesia: 86 MW Rantau Dedap Geothermal Project Due to Open Next Year

Harvesting Sumatra’s clean energy (Mott MacDonald)

The new Rantau Dedap geothermal power plant is delivering a lasting social dividend, as well as 90 MW of carbon-free electricity.

Indonesian power producer Supreme Energy’s search for a suitable location took it to Rantau Dedap in the Muara Enim regency and Pagar Alam city administrative area, a region of South Sumatra inhabited by fewer than 10,000 people.

Due to open in 2020, the geothermal power plant is expected to generate more than 90 MW of electricity, enough for up to 130,000 households across the region, and to reduce CO2 emissions by more than 400,000t each year.
