- Promoting low-carbon electricity production for reducing emission while meeting the growing energy needs in Indonesia
- As a benchmark for upcoming photovoltaic power plant projects in Indonesia
Indonesia with ample resources of wind, solar, biomass, hydro and geothermal has an aggressive goal to increase the share of renewable energy in the country's energy mix to 23 percent by 2025, and 31 percent by 2050. The goal is part of Indonesia's plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in line with the Paris Agreement on Climate Change which was signed in 2016.
Recognizing the opportunity that Indonesia's energy market presents, Siemens Indonesia offers technology and expertise to grow the Indonesian market for clean energy solutions from Siemens and at the same time support the Indonesian government's efforts to meet national emissions targets.
The efforts to cutting carbon emissions while meeting the growing energy needs of an expanding national population require innovative, pioneering solutions. The Energy Management Division – Digital Grid of PT Siemens Indonesia introduces SICAM Microgrid Control and SICAM Microgrid PV Control System. The solar photovoltaic system monitors and controls the power supply in independent distribution grids and thus provides cost-efficient and reliable energy management. It offers flexible communication, seamless continuity, maximum security, and unlimited migration, thus securing the optimal use of the generation systems.
Siemens has been a reliable partner in providing a modern and innovative solutions and technology. Today, we're supporting Vietnam's energy transformation by supplying a monitoring and control system and service to the country's largest solar farm.Gerald Quaas, Head of Digital Grid of Energy Management Division, PT Siemens Indonesia
Gerald Quaas, Head of Digital Grid of Energy Management Division, PT Siemens Indonesia stated "Siemens has been a reliable partner in providing a modern and innovative solutions and technology. Today, we're supporting Vietnam's energy transformation by supplying a monitoring and control system and service to the country's largest solar farm. This represents a strong commitment and capability of Siemens Indonesia to deliver quality products and solutions across the region and also something the local employees can really be proud of."
The solution has been tried and proven in the important tasks of grid monitoring and control, like in Vietnam's largest solar farm located in the southern Vietnamese province of Ninh Thuan. The project will take shape by mid-2019 and deliver up to 425 Gigawatt hours (GWh) per year, which is enough to supply approximately 200,000 households with electricity and saves around 250,000 tons of CO2. The farm is the first solar project for Siemens in Southeast Asia, where the company will supply inverters, power and distribution transformers, gas-insulated medium-voltage switchgear, circuit-breakers, and a monitoring and control system.
As part of the order, Siemens Indonesia will supply a monitoring and control system for this project, which consist of SICAM Micro Grid PV Control System and SCADA. The equipments for this project will be sourced from Siemens manufacturing facility in Pulomas, Jakarta and will be shipped to the project site in the first quarter of 2019 with the installation and commissioning to be completed mid of 2019.
