Indonesia: Banten and South Sulawesi Wind Power Development

Nonsovereign (Private) Project | 50052-001 Status: Closed

The PPTA will support grid integration and environmental/social studies across three sites in Banten and South Sulawesi. The grid integration studies will investigate the robustness of the grid structure and make specific recommendations for grid upgrade in order to absorb the instability of electrical output for each site. Working with local PLN counterparts and modeling local grid conditions is essential for the next generation of wind projects because PLN currently does not have the capacity or proper tools to manage standard integration of intermittent power. The environmental and social assessments will include reviews of environmental constraints analyses, as well as biodiversity and socio-economic baseline studies required by the Indonesian government, international best practice and ADB safeguards for wind farm developments.

Description The PPTA will support grid integration and environmental/social studies across three sites in Banten and South Sulawesi. The grid integration studies will investigate the robustness of the grid structure and make specific recommendations for grid upgrade in order to absorb the instability of electrical output for each site. Working with local PLN counterparts and modeling local grid conditions is essential for the next generation of wind projects because PLN currently does not have the capacity or proper tools to manage standard integration of intermittent power. The environmental and social assessments will include reviews of environmental constraints analyses, as well as biodiversity and socio-economic baseline studies required by the Indonesian government, international best practice and ADB safeguards for wind farm developments.
Objectives and Scope The PPTA will support grid integration and environmental/social studies across three sites in Banten and South Sulawesi. The grid integration studies will investigate the robustness of the grid structure and make specific recommendations for grid upgrade in order to absorb the instability of electrical output for each site. Working with local PLN counterparts and modeling local grid conditions is essential for the next generation of wind projects because PLN currently does not have the capacity or proper tools to manage standard integration of intermittent power. The environmental and social assessments will include reviews of environmental constraints analyses, as well as biodiversity and socio-economic baseline studies required by the Indonesian government, international best practice and ADB safeguards for wind farm developments.Under the PPTA, consultants will prepare grid integration studies, environmental and social baseline and red-flag assessments for three sites, all specific to the proposed project sites, and completed by July 2017. Based on the study assessments and recommendations, the PPTA can help support the development of at least one utility scale wind farm.
Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

ADB assistance for the Project is aligned with ADB's Strategy 2020 which supports environmentally sustainable, private sector assisted development in meeting the growing energy demand in the region. The assistance is also aligned with the CPS for Indonesia 2010-2014, interim COBP 2015-2017 and the new draft CPS, specifically the strategy's second pillar of environmental sustainability through climate change mitigation.

The Project will ultimately increase the renewable energy capacity in Indonesia, helping meet the country's rapidly growing demand for power in a more sustainable manner. In addition, ADB recognizes that the Project is aligned with Indonesia's broader initiatives to achieve the national targets of (1) increasing the use of renewable energy to 23% by 2025 and (2) reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 29% by 2030. The assistance maintains ADB's broad support for the first generation of credible wind developers in Indonesia and complements private sector development (PSD) elements of public sector wind policy assistance. The Project will also demonstrate the viability and sustainability of private sector wind developments in provinces across various grids with different size and demand profiles.

Business Opportunities
Procurement The PPTA will involve the recruitment of two consulting firms, one with technical expertise and the other with environmental/social safeguards expertise. The consultants will be engaged by ADB in accordance with the Guidelines on the Use of the Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time). Output-based contracts will be required for all studies. The firm for grid integration study will be selected according to Consultants' Qualifications Selection (CQS), given the few specialized contractors and short-term nature of the assignment. The firm for environmental/social assessment will be selected according to the quality cost based selection (QCBS) method with simplified technical proposal, given the more standard nature of work and longer-term contract. Disbursements and payment of services will be conditional on the quality of the output and ADB's acceptance of the product, in accordance with the ADB's Technical Assistance Disbursement Handbook (May 2010, as amended from time to time).
