Considering the fact that Indonesia has 40% of the global geothermal capacity, there is a huge room to grow as it currently utilizes only 5% of its geothermal power capacity. The Indonesian Government also supports new development of geothermal resources through its fast track program in order to achieve the target of 35,000MW additional power plants within next 5 years.
Hitay was awarded with Preliminary Surveys (PSP) by the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources in 2013, 2014 and 2015, covering remote sensing, geological, geophysical, and geochemistry works. Hitay is getting ready to start drilling in 2017 with a target of COD (Commercial Operation Date) within next 5 years.
With the dedication and hard work of its staff along with full support from the local and the central governments, Hitay is confident to successfully achieve its projects’ target.
