Peusangan Hydroelectric Power Plant Construction Project

Period (Date of Loan Agreement):
    March 29, 2007

Place :
    Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam

Amount Provided:

Executing Agency:
    State Electricity Company (PT PLN)

Key Points:
Improving the power situation in North Sumatra by exploiting hydro power

The objective of the project is to mitigate the tight power supply situation and improve the stability of power supply in the Aceh-North Sumatra power system by constructing a hydroelectric power plant (capacity: 86.4 MW) and related transmission lines near Lake Tawar in the upstream of the Peusangan River, Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam Province. This will lead to an improved investment climate and thereby contribute to economic development in the northern region of Sumatra Island. In addition, harnessing renewable energy will help reduce adverse impact on the global environment. The project is due to be completed in 2014.
