Power contract for world's largest rooftop solar system signed
TotalEnergies ENEOS and PT Gunung Raja Paksi Tbk (GRP), a member of Gunung Steel Group and one of the largest private steelmakers in Indonesia, recently announced the signing of power contracts to solarize the rooftops of a GRP production site in Cikarang, Jakarta. This will be one the largest solar projects in Indonesia and the largest solar rooftop in the world.
     "The installation of solar panels will be carried out throughout the factory area. This effort is a sustainable and long-term advantage which further strengthens GRP's commitment towards mitigating greenhouse gas emissions. We believe that this effort will allow us to increase our in-market competitiveness while tapping on green energy. Ultimately, this will lead us towards our goal of sustainable steel production. " said President Director of GGRP Abednedju Giovano Warani Sangkaeng (Argo).
     By installing this solar system, GRP will reduce annual scope 2 carbon dioxide emissions and significantly reduce annual power costs. The implementation of the solar installation project will be led by the TotalEnergies ENEOS technical team, who is also responsible for design and selection of a trusted EPC partner.
     TotalEnergies ENEOS will apply the highest safety and quality standards for all stages of the GRP project. The selection of equipment and installation will follow the technical standards of TotalEnergies ENEOS. Therefore, it's ensured that the advanced solar PV system will be able to work for more than 30 years.
     "As the largest solar rooftop globally, TotalEnergies ENEOS was a natural choice. We are honored to be trusted by GRP to deliver this project safely and on time, using our best-in-class construction capabilities. TotalEnergies ENEOS provides its customers peace of mind from a technical, financial and commercial perspective. We are committed to being a long-term energy partner for GRP and hope to collaborate further in the future." said Gavin Adda, Director of TotalEnergies ENEOS Renewables Distributed Generation Asia.
     During the long-term operation, this solar power plant will be equipped with sensors to monitor radiation, wind speed and ambient temperature.  The data will be integrated into a remote monitoring system to track carbon reduction and conduct preventive maintenance on a 24-hours basis.
