The Melaya installation will be developed on the ground by Akuo Energy Indonesia and will be built over 55 hectares of agricultural wasteland that was set aside by the government of Bali.

Construction on the installation is expected to start in the second half of 2018 — with installation expected to be completed by 2019.
