The 75 MW Sidrap Wind Farm project is located in the Sidrap region, in South Sulawesi, Indonesia. The project is Indonesia’s first utility scale wind farm and began providing power to the Southern Sulawesi PLN grid in March 2018. The project uses 30 Gamesa 2.5 MW turbines.
The Sidrap Project is located on a group of windy ridges. The location has strong winds along with a supportive local community that welcomed the project. Numerous jobs in both project development and construction have been created with the majority being filled by the local citizens from the region.
Sidrap completed construction on the April 5th, 2018 and was inaugurated by the President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo on July 5th, 2018. Notably, Sidrap was completed on time and on budget. The operation profile continues to meet or exceed expectations.
The Sidrap project is owned in partnership with AC Energy Holding (an Ayala Corporation subsidiary) with bank finance by the U.S. Overseas Private Investment Corporation.
