Key Takeaways

  • Greenfields of Indonesia has contracted Total Solar Distributed Generation to set up a solar power plant
  • It will have a capacity of 1.3 GW and generate 1,770 MWh of electricity on annual basis
  • Power generated will be supplied to Greenfields’ biggest milk processing plant in Palaan region and Cover around 20% of the plant’s electricity needs

The largest dairy company in Southeast Asia, as per Total Solar Distributed Generation (DG), will be using solar power for its operations in Indonesia from a 1.3 MW solar system. Power generated will be supplied to Greenfields’ biggest milk processing plant in Palaan in Indonesia’s East Java region.

The 1.3 MW solar system is expected to generate 1,770 MWh of electricity annually to cover around 20% of the needs of the factory that is large enough to process 70 million liters of milk annually. A power purchase agreement (PPA) was signed between the two.

Total Solar will deploy 3,750 solar modules and the system is likely to come online in Q3/2020. Greenfields is part of the AustAsia Food Group that exports its dairy products to major markets in Southeast Asia including Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Brunei and Myanmar.

“Greenfields is pleased to partner with Total Solar DG on this project, which will not only broaden our energy sources and improve our resource’s efficiency, but also reduce our environmental footprint and help build a more sustainable future,” said Edgar Collins, CEO of AustAsia Food.

In early March 2020, Indonesian coal mining company SESM Signed a 20-year power supply contract with palm oil planter PT Golden blossom for a 10.5 MW off grid solar power plant (see Indonesian Coal Miner To Build 10.5 MW Solar Plant).
