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.
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.
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.
