    Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

    The project preparatory technical assistance (PPTA) is required to conduct due diligence and prepare the relevant project documents for two investment projects, which will provide a $360 million project loan(s) to the Government of Indonesia for the development of nearly 184 megawatts (MW) of hydroelectric power plants (HPP) in East Java, and West Papua. The two subprojects in East Java are - (i) expansion of existing Sutami HPP (Units IV and V - 2x50 MW) and (ii) Kesamben HPP (Units I and II - 2x18.5 MW). The subproject in West Papua is Warsamson HPP (Units I-III 3x15.5 MW).

    A due diligence on Warsamson will be conducted first to be followed by work for the East Java projects. The consultant will (i) update relevant studies, analyses , and data on project feasibility reports prepared by PLN and other agencies; (ii) review demand forecasts and preliminary project designs, and undertake a least cost analysis for additional generation capacity; and (iii) prepare project proposals (including technical, financial, economic, social and environmental analysis) for consideration by the government and ADB, including necessary documents under the Safeguard Policy Statement (SPS), in the format of a RRP and linked documents, in close coordination with the ADB project officer. The consultants will also organize and implement all necessary surveys required for data collection, and organize all workshops and information dissemination sessions including inception, interim and final workshops.
