PLTA Jatigede will Finish by 2014

JAKARTA. The construction of Hydro Power Plant (PLTA) Jatigede is targeted finish by 2014. To make it realize, PT State Electricity Enterprise (PLN Persero) together with Directorate General of Water Resource, Ministry of Public Works signed agreement of Jatigede reservoir construction and PLTA. Director General of Water Resource Moch. Amron and President Director of PLN Nur Pamudji signed the agreement and witnessed by Minister of Public Works Djoko Kirmanto. The signing was also attended by of Directorate General of Electricity and Directorate General of New, Renewable Energy and Energy Conservation (Ditjen EBTKE), represented by Director of Renewable Energy Variety, Hasrul L. Azahari. “We target the finishing of Jatigede Reservoir by the end of 2013, while for PLTA by the end of 2014,” says Hasrul L. Azahari.

The construction of Jatigede Reservoir is worked by Ministry of Public Works through Balai Besar Wilayah Sungai Cimanuk Cisanggarung and planned to finish by the end of 2013. The construction process includes the construction of power intake and power tunnel for 150 m for preparation of PLTA construction.

The construction of Jatigede Reservoir involves two institutions; Ministry of Public Work and PLN. So, a joint agreement is made for conception construction and joint commitment and also cooperation in construction and maintenance of PLTA JAtigede based on each authority and responsibility. The joint agreement is valid for three years and could be prolonged based on agreement.

Jatigede Reservoir Project is located in Sumedang, West Java with total cost of Rp 3 trillion. The location of Jatigede Reservoir is part of Sungai Cimanuk-Cisanggarung covering the watershed of Garut District, Sumedang, Majalengka, Cirebon, Indramayu, Kuningan and also Brebes Central Java. The location of the dam of Jatigede Reservoir Project is in Jatigede Kulon, Cijeungjing Village, Jatigede Sub-District, Sumedang District.

Meanwhile, as being quoted from website of Ministry of Public Work, Minister of PW Djoko Kirmanto stated that the signing of the agreement will be followed up by Cooperation Agreement for construction and maintenance of PLTA Jatigede. The joint agreement is valid for three years and could be prolonged based on agreement,” says Djoko.

Djoko also explained that recent crisis in the world is food, water and energy crisis. Land for cultivation and water capacity on earth is not proportional with population growth in the world, so it needs an environmentally friendly and update technology.

The technology will be implemented together with the construction of Jatigede Reservoir. PLN will build PLTA. The technology does not emit green house gas emission, coal combustion and even oil. So it supports climate change handling and global warming prevention. The technology using of PLTA in Jatigede Dam has been appropriate to fulfill energy needs in Java and Bali. The government budget increase but is incapable in fulfilling the needs. So coordination with the maintenance of resources is needed.

Both construction of reservoir and dam has to be based on mandate of Law Number 7 Year 2004 concerning Water Resources. Technology selection, design, and support government policy are needed to make it efficient and effective by a good coordination with other sides. The construction has to be strategic with right process and useful for broad people. (AK)
