PLN to build a 40 MW geothermal plant in Indonesia

PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PT PLN), a state-owned utility company, will construct a 40 MW geothermal power plant in Ulumbu, Indonesia.

Five production well locations will supply steam to the power plant, while the brine produced will be returned to the two reinjection wells. Pre-construction activities have already commenced for the facility. The Ulumbu geothermal area is one of six sites that will aid Flores Island to add 115 MW of new geothermal power generation capacity by 2028. Early in 2022, PT PLN invited bids from interested parties to undertake the development of Ulumbu and Mataloko power projects.
