Mini Hydro Alliance Signed 

Released: 19th September 2017

Tamar Hydro Pty Ltd of Tasmania Australia, and Genco Energy Group Ltd of New Zealand announce they have entered into a Hydro Alliance for mini hydro Projects. 

Through Genco Energy's subsidiary PT. Genco Energi Indonesia of Jakarta, Tamar Hydro Pty Ltd are embarking on a formal Alliance that takes the Tasmanian designer and manufacturing company into the large mini hydro market of Indonesia and beyond.

This programme is driven by strong PLN PPA’s and an insatiable demand for energy by the PLN, as Indonesia proceeds with its huge electrification programme.

With 55MW’s of construction ready mini hydro projects in the programme, David Carre and Phil McCafferty of Tamar Hydro Pty Ltd are in Indonesia, across Sumatra and Java inspecting and validating the projects with the Genco Energy team. This will bring AUD$45 Million over 3 years in Hydro Manufacturing works back to Tasmania under the Alliance.

PT. Genco Energi Indonesia has been operating in Indonesia for the past 5 years and Saiful Bahri, Commerical Director (2nd R) and Agam Marzuki, Technical Director (2nd L) are driving the Indonesian renewable thrust for Genco Energy Group Ltd.

Mr Jon Ford (far L), Head of Design and Engineering for Genco Energy Group, is leading the Alliance Indonesian delegation from the 14th Sept 2017 across many mini hydro sites.

Tamar Hydro Pty Ltd has a range of turbines from its IP and designs that are well suited to Indonesia.

“The Alliance Delegation also notes that Wind and Solar are on the agenda”
