JAKARTA ( – State electricity company PLN opens a tender for the development of road access to Upper Cisokan hydro-power plant (PLTA).

The project is estimated to cost Rp450 billion.

Project Update

The hydroelectric power station will be built in an upper tributary of the Cisokan River, some 126 kilometers southeast of Jakarta.  The 1,040-megawatt power plant will produce electricity from a dam that has two reservoirs: the upper one 75.5 meters high and the lower one 98m high.

It is expected to take 50 months to complete construction.

The project is now entering first development phase, namely development of access road, development of upper and lower dam, powerhouse and water, switch-yard and transmission with a capacity of 500 kV.

In October last year, PLN awarded the EPC (engineering, procurement, and construction) contract worth 269.3 billion won (USD231.9 million) to a consortium led by Daelim Industrial Co., South Korea’s fourth-largest builder.

Daelim Industrial joined hands with Italian construction firm Astaldi SpA. and Indonesian state-run construction firm PT Wijaya Karya Tbk (WIKA) to clinch the Upper Cisokan Pumped Storage (UCPS) Power Project in West Java, funded by the World Bank. The South Korean firm holds a 1,077 billion-won stake in the project. (*)
