After successfully completing 9 PSP and one Geothermal Working Area Tender, currently, Hitay is initially preparing to focus on exploring its projects to support the Indonesian Government in reaching the ± 7.200 MWe target in 2025 as part of its electric power plant acceleration programs. Hitay’s priority is to develop top or “low hanging fruit” prospects remaining in Great Sumatra Fault (GSF), as well as to start the development of major intermediate temperature resources. Hitay is currently focusing on exploration programs of its projects, with the target of drilling in early 2019 in its first project Gn. Talang – Bukit Kili, West Sumatra, and then the interconnection project to power grid in 2022.
Hitay will develop these projects using national expertise in development of all geothermal sectors, covering exploration, drilling, and operation using the latest technology and safety practices. Hitay will comply with all local laws, regulations and ethics principles and transfer the benefits of its geothermal operation to local people, by employing and developing local employees in this important field. We will implement state-of-the-art technology ultimately satisfying the electricity need in the country to contribute to Indonesia’s economic development via long term and sustainable green energy development in the country.
With the support of central and local governments, along with all stakeholders, Hitay aims to achieve the target in delivering geothermal electrical power on a timely basis, and become a major power in the geothermal industry.
