Securing Environmental Approval for Java Island’s 70MW Wind Farm

Share this post

ESC was commissioned by an independent renewable energy power producer to conduct Analisis Mengenai Dampak Lingkungan (AMDAL) and Environmental and Social Impact Assessments (ESIA) for the installation of a 70 MW Wind Farm in Java Island, Indonesia.

About the Project

The client intends to construct a Wind Power Plant (PLTB) in Tegal Regency’s Margasari District. This project will have a maximum total installed capacity of 70 MW and will be located in Tegal Regency’s industrial and agricultural sectors. Through this project, the client can contribute to supporting the Government of the Republic of Indonesia programme for the development of new and renewable energy, which aims to reach a 23% utilisation of new and renewable energy from total electricity generation by 2025.

Our Approach

ESC took a technical approach to facilitate the delivery of all key environmental permitting and provided the client with a single direct access point to the experts responsible for developing the AMDAL (Environmental Impact Assessments) and ESIA.

Impact assessments are required by AMDAL and ESIA for pre-construction, construction, operation, and maintenance. ESC conducted the impact assessments in accordance with the AMDAL guidelines in order to identify the significance of the impacts and the mitigation measures that must be implemented. The duration of the impact, whether short or long-term, the area of influence, and the number of people or environmental aspects to be impacted all have a role in its significance.

Outcome

Leveraging our established professional relationship with regulatory authorities, whilst drawing on our deep local and legislative insights, we were able to assist the client in attaining the necessary environmental permits and ESIA development covering Indonesia.

Client Testimonials

ESC thinks out of the box. They can come up with conventional solutions. But they are better in providing a solution fit for the company - one that feeds your organization. 

ESC is focused on helping us solve our problem. Even if it means sometimes going out of the scope of what was originally agreed upon. So as a client, I can focus all my efforts on solving the problem.

We had no experience at first in dealing with Safety Cases and dealing with authority. When we have an issue, we ask ESC. Just one look at it, ESC already knows what to do. They  advise us accordingly and professionally and tell us what to do what to follow and to know. Our partnership with them produced good results.
