Administrative Issues Stunt Cirata Solar Plant's Progress


The Cirata floating solar power plant (PLTS) still has not been operational due to some unresolved problems, such as administrative issues. The project between PT Pembangkitan Jawa-Bali (PJB) and Masdar United Arab Emirates (UAE) should have been completed by the end of 2022. First deputy to Presidential Chief of Staff (KSP) Febry Calvin Tetelepta assured the government would push for the completion of the project located in the Cirata Dam, Purwakarta, West Java. "Currently, the construction process is 45 percent complete," he said on Sunday without going into the details.

The Indonesian government expects the renewable energy portion in the country's energy mix to reach 23 percent by 2025, hence the eagerness to support the Cirata floating solar power plant (PLTS) project. For the record, PJB and Masdar signed the project's memorandum of understanding (MoU) on July 16, 2017.
