The wind facility, to be located in South Kalimantan, will be equipped with a 10 MWh battery energy storage system (BESS). It will use the latest wind turbine technology  with a capacity of over 6 MW per unit. The construction of the project is scheduled to commence in 2024, with the commissioning planned for 2025. Once operational, the wind farm will offset around 220,000 tonnes of carbon emission per year. The project is expected to strengthen the electricity supply in Kalimantan interconnection system and add to the renewable energy mix in Indonesia.
