PacificLight Power Pte Ltd. working with a consortium comprising Medco Power Indonesia and Gallant Venture Ltd. has been granted in-principle approval by the Energy Market Authority for a 100MW pilot solar import project from Indonesia to Singapore.

The Project is in line with the Singapore Green Plan 2030 to increase renewable generation.
 

A Joint Development Agreement was signed between the consortium during the Singapore International Energy Week on 25 October 2021 and witnessed by the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources of the Republic of Indonesia and Second Minister for Trade and Industry of Singapore.

PLP, Medco Power Indonesia and Gallant Venture are in advanced stages of developing a solar PV project that will supply renewable electricity exclusively to Singapore through the installation of solar panels at Bulan Island, 2.5 km south-west of Batam Island, Indonesia.

The project is expected to have an installed generation capacity of 670MWp in the initial phase, which will provide 100MW equivalent of non-intermittent electricity.

The renewable electricity generated will be supplied via a dedicated plant-to-grid 230 kV HVAC subsea connection to Singapore.

"PLP is committed to providing our customers with long term efficient energy solutions that are cost competitive and sustainable," said Mr. Yu Tat Ming, Chief Executive Officer, PacificLight. 

Mr. Eka Satria, CEO of Medco Power, said, "As one of Indonesia's leading independent power producers that is committed to clean and renewable energy development, we have proven experience in successfully developing green and renewable power projects, including the Sarulla geothermal project and Sumbawa solar facility.
