Floating solar farms to be developed by PLN and ACWA in Indonesia

The Singkarak and Saguling floating solar farms have a total capacity of 169 MWp.

Indonesia-owned power company PLN and Saudi Arabia-based ACWA Power have formed a strategic partnership to develop two floating offshore solar photovoltaic (PV) plants in the Southeast Asian country.

The plants involved are the 77-megawatt peak (MWp) solar plant on Lake Singkarak in West Sumatra, and the 92 MWp solar plant on Saguling Reservoir in West Java.

The Singkarak solar farm is projected to be distributed through a 150-kilovolt (kV) interconnection to provide clean electricity in Sumatra. On the other hand, the Saguling floating solar farm will be linked to the power systems of Java, Madura, and Bali via a 150 kV interconnection.

“This floating solar farm will be a revolution in the development of domestic renewable energy, and we hope that this project will contribute significantly to the development of the renewable energy business in Indonesia,” Darmawan Prasodjo, President of PLN, stated.
