PT Chandra Asri Pacific (Chandra Asri Group) is participating in Indonesia’s renewable energy drive by providing essential infrastructure materials for Geothermal Power Plant (PLTP) projects in the country.

The company’s contribution comes in the form of Asrene®SP4808, a specialized material that can be transformed into High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) pipes, specifically designed for geothermal field facilities.

Asrene®SP4808 stands out as a local resin with certification from the Indonesian National Standard (SNI) and boasts the highest Domestic Component Level (TKDN) in the country.

Supriyanto, the General Manager of Technical Service and Product Development at Chandra Asri Group, emphasized that Asrene®SP4808 is a SNI-certified resin recognized as PE 100, renowned for its superior long-term strength and holding the highest TKDN in its category.

“Our provision of high-quality raw materials underscores the company’s commitment as a Growth Partner for Indonesia, offering infrastructure solutions to foster the development of more environmentally friendly renewable energy sources in the country,” Supriyanto said in a press release on February 6, 2024.

Highlighting successful applications, Supriyanto noted that HDPE pipes with a specific formulation have been deployed in the Hamiding Geothermal Field in North Maluku, supporting drilling water supply facilities.

Additionally, HDPE pipes in the Wayang Windu Geothermal Field in Pangalengan, West Java, have been effectively utilized in distributing 55°C condensate water to injection wells. Notably, the HDPE pipes with this special formulation can replace conventional steel pipes.

This innovative approach to HDPE pipes brings notable advantages, providing a cost-effective solution with relatively lower material, installation, and maintenance expenses compared to steel pipes.

The use of HDPE pipes with Asrene®SP4808 as the raw material offers inherent resistance to corrosion and abrasion. Moreover, the material’s flexibility and elasticity enable it to adapt seamlessly to the contours of the geothermal field area, making it a reliable and low-maintenance choice for geothermal facilities.

Geothermal energy, recognized for its environmentally friendly and sustainable attributes, represents a key player in Indonesia’s pursuit of renewable energy. The heat harnessed from the Earth’s depths serves as a potent source for electricity generation.

Geothermal power plant projects, such as those supported by Chandra Asri, play a pivotal role in achieving the outlined renewable energy mix targets of 23 percent by 2025 and 31 percent by 2050, as per the National General Energy Plan (RUEN).

Despite Indonesia’s immense geothermal potential of 23.06 GW, the utilization remains at about 10.19 percent, signifying substantial room for growth and development in the renewable energy sector.
