Two 220 MW geothermal plants to be built in Sumatra

Two 220 MW geothermal power plants are to be built on Sumatra Island in Indonesia by GDF Suez and International Power joint venture IPR-GDF.

The two companies, along with project partners PT Supreme Energy and Sumitomo Corporation, today signed 30-year power purchase agreements for the plants with PLN, the state-owned utility of Indonesia.

The Muara Laboh and Rajabasa plants are part of the Indonesian government’s second fast-track programme, of which around 4500 MW should come from geothermal sources.

IPR-GDF Suez Asia is one of the leading independent power producers in Indonesia with 1280 MW of operating assets and 815 MW under construction.
