Design and implementation of stand-alone energy systems for the three small and remote islands of Parang, Nyamuk and Genting off the north coast of Java. Solar power will cover 95-100% of the consumption of the villagers. Works include establishment of foundations for and installation of solar panels, inverters and batteries.
The 2,000 islanders will also benefit from integrated diesel generators, and refurbishment of distribution cables for 24/7 provision of power to the population – something which has not been common in the past.
The project is part of COWI’s role to assist the Danish Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia, with the implementation of environmentally friendly and sustainable energy pilot projects in Central Java.
