SGI-Mitabu is drawing up plans for a 50MW ground-mounted PV system in Indonesia which will represent the first phase of a proposed 250MW worth of projects in the country. The project will be developed under the company’s One Solar Watt Per Person programme.
Still in the early planning stages, the company has not yet revealed a specific location but it is understood that the project will cover 60-80 hectares of land in addition to extra land for a “tourist facility” which will house an educational centre. According to the company, the project will feature a first-of-a-kind design which will become an iconic installation in the country attracting tourists.
In October SGI-Mitabu secured approximately US$120 million to fund the 50MW project which, the company reveals, will most likely be equipped with Kyocera Solar’s 320W c-Si poly solar panels. These panels are specifically designed for utility-scale PV projects. Installation is estimated to take around a year to complete.
