Hydro Test Bed System

Picture1Hydro power is an old - well established technology that harnesses the natural energy as a clean - renewable - sustainable power generation that could power an entire city or an isolated tea plantation, yet there are not so many universities and technical schools in Indonesia to integrate hydro power (or renewable energy) know-how into their curriculum.

In order to introduce the hydro power sector to the educational institutes, pt. entec Indonesia has prepared a miniature Hydro Test Bed Educational System. Although it is only producing 40Watt, it is a complete working simulation of Micro Hydro Power Generation scheme that could help a novice or students to understand the basic working principle of electro-mechanical component used in Micro Hydro Power.

One of this Hydro Test Bed System has been delivered to one of private University in Jakarta on March 3, 2017, which will be used to support an upgraded curriculum in the university to answer the growing demands in the renewable energy sector.

CTI-PFAN AFCEF-7 Business Plan Competition

170210 ArN 092 CTI PFAN 01 resize

The Banea mini hydropower project located in West Sulawesi is progressing satisfactorily. We are currently upgrading the Pre-Feasibility study to full Feasibility Study status. Activities currently on-going include implementation of more detailed topographical study, grid inter-connection study and preparation of a Detailed Engineering Design (DED).

In parallel we are now exploring financing options for the project and hope to mobilize financial support through collaboration with an investor interested to participate in the Indonesian small-scale renewable energy sector.
As part of our efforts to identify possible investors we participated in the CTI-PFAN Asia Forum for Clean Energy Financing (AFCEF-7) Business Plan Competition. This program aims at identifying commercially attractive clean energy projects in the Asian region and linking them up with potential investors. The program comprises a number of stages whereby the project developers are assisted in preparing their respective business plans. After an intensive process of selection, 12 finalists were invited to present their projects at the investor forum in Singapore on the 10 Feb 2017.

PT. Entec Indonesia is proud to announce that we were awarded the runner-up position for the Banea Mini Hydropower project presented at the event. The forum showcased 12 projects spanning technologies such as solar, biogas, bio-fuels, hydroelectric, waste to energy, energy efficiency, thermal power and distributed & off-grid generation developed by entrepreneurs and companies from Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Nepal, Philippines and Vietnam.

MHP Banea

120718 19 Topographical Survey Banea 063 resizeRencana lokasi Pembangkit Listrik Tenaga Mini Hidro (PLTM) Banea terletak di wilayah desa Banea, kecamatan Sumarorong, kabupaten Mamasa, provinsi Sulawesi Barat. Secara topografis wilayah di Kabupaten Mamasa hampir seluruhnya mencirikan kawasan daratan tinggi atau penggunungan dengan kontur yang berbukit-bukit dengan ketinggian 100 m sampai dengan 3000 m diatas permukaan laut, bagian wilayah 1000-2000 m diatas permukaan laut dapat ditemukan di sebagian besar semua wilayah Kabupaten kecuali Kecamatan Messawa, Balla, Mambi dan Rantebulahan Timur. Semantara wilayah Kecamatan Sumarorong sendiri berada pada rata-rata ketinggian 1000 m diatas permukaan laut.

Dari hasil pengukuran didapat bahwa tinggi kotor (gross-head) antara elevasi

muka air di rencana bak penenang dan rencana as turbin adalah sekitar 65.38 m. Sedangkan debiit air ideal untuk perencanaan PLTM Banea adalah debit air pada prosentase kejadian 30%, sehingga dapat dipakai debit rencana sebesar 4.65 m3/detik.maka diperkirakan akan dihasilkan daya keluaran sebesar 2.55 MW.

Saat ini pt. entec sedang menyusun pembuatan Feasibility study berikut dengan Detailed Engineering Design, yang secara paralel dilakukan bersamaan dengan pengurusan lahan dan perijinan, serta mencari calon investor.

MHP Dewata

 040202 JAV029 014The Mini Hydro Power project, the 600 hectares Dewata estate which produces 1 200 tons of made tea per year, relied exclusively on diesel generators to supply power for running the factory and supplying estates workers’ houses with lighting. The project idea started to take shape toward the end of the 90’s when diesel fuel was still highly subsidized. Therefore, the trigger to build the MHP was a combination of the desire to help preserve the forest and an awareness that sooner or later fuel prices would have to increase with the removal of subsidies. Through the implementation of this project, PT. Chakra sees a window of opportunity to encourage other estates follow their example for both economical and environmental reasons. By owning and operating an MHP project, it becomes imperative for the owner to conduct catchment area preservation activities to ensure a sustainable continuous flow of water.
Dewata’s dependence on diesel fuel for energy generation is representative of the estate sector in Indonesia. The Dewata example is fully financially viable and could therefore be replicated in many tea estates in Indonesia. It is hoped that through the exposure of the Dewata example, policy makers, financing institutions and potential project stakeholders will be encouraged to pursue similar initiatives in the future contributing to the mitigation of global warming providing positive impact on the environment.
The total investment cost of the scheme including the local engineering costs was approximately US$ 350 000. This translates into a cost per kilowatt installed capacity of approximately US$1 400. From this total 50% represented a loan component and 50% equity from PT.Chakra. A portion of the engineering costs was provided as a contribution from the MHPP project and consisted primarily of the technical assistance provided in the local design and manufacture of the electro-mechanical equipment and the preparation of the feasibility study and detailed design.
