Indonesia starts constructing first wind power plant

The construction of a 10MW wind power plant in Indonesia started with Aceh Governor Irwandi Yusuf laying the foundation stone.  It is located in Suak Bakong village, Kluet subdistrict, South Aceh regency.

"PLTB Kluet is the first of its kind in Indonesia, and it is hoped the environmentally friendly power plant will help overcome the power crisis in the area," Irwandi Yusuf said, according to the Andara News.

Irwandi said the coastal area of Kandang, west of Sumatra island, has a wind speed of 2 to 4 meters per second, which had attracted the interest of South Korean investors and Indonesian businessmen in building the 10 MW PLTB.

South Korean investors Kim Jong Tae, Go Young Min, Song Jae Sung, and Baek Gwang Hyun, and Indonesian businessman Marlis Pohan will build 200 wind turbine towers in 75 hectares of land.

The construction of the wind turbines needs a wind speed of only 1.6 to 3 meters per second.
