Banda Aceh, (24/01/2017). One potential renewable energy, environmentally friendly wind / wind becomes a significant choice for the development of electricity in Aceh. Egeres Enerji, a large Turkish company engaged in renewable energy shows interest in this wind potential and visits Aceh in order to explore the potential of the bayu power and has made initial communication with PLN Aceh, Aceh Besar Government and Banda Aceh City Government as a first step .

In order to obtain more detailed information, the Agency for Investment and Promotion of Aceh (BIP) welcomed the Egeres delegation, Mr. Gunkut Kurtaran, one of the founders of Egeres accompanied by local consultants, Mr. Duta and Mr. Bimo from PT. Indopower International on Wednesday morning (24/01/2016). The meeting was led by the Head of BIP represented by the Head of Promotion Division and also attended the Head of Licensing Division, Head of Development and the staff of Promotion Sector.

The initial communication result between Egeres and Aceh Besar Regency and Pemko Banda Aceh, found that Peukan Bada Sub-district, Aceh Besar Regency is one of the areas in Sumatera with the best prospect of wind power plant with wind speed reaching 5.2-6.6 m / S which is sufficient to drive a 3-4 m / s turbine speed. In the Banda Aceh region, the most ideal location is on the coast especially around Ulee Lheu beach.

From the Egeres dialog with PLN Aceh, Aceh has a pretty good wind potential in the northern part of Aceh Besar, Kreueng Raya area. As a preliminary initiation, Egeres will make a MoU with PLN and the next step will be carried out a more in-depth potential study. In order to know the wind power in Aceh Besar, Egeres planned to install a wind gauge for one year and from the results of the data it can be decided whether the Krueng Raya area has great potential for built-in power. If feasible, the power plant construction process is expected to take a total of 4 (four) years from licensing to turbine construction.

The Government of Aceh is very grateful to the investment plan in this energy energy and expect to get positive results from the initial survey of Egeres Energy. More detailed review will be conducted by PT. Indopower International. (Rk / El)
