Shizen Energy, Alamport, and NiX to build 3MWp roof-mounted solar power plant for Eco Paper Indonesia
Shizen Energy Inc.(Shizen Energy), Alamport Inc.(Alamport), and NiX JAPAN Co., Ltd. (NiX) will install a 3 MWp rooftop solar power plant for PT Eco Paper Indonesia, a subsidiary of PT Alkindo Naratama Tbk (ALDO), and a manufacturer of industrial paper products with an environmentally-friendly concept that uses waste paper products as its raw materials. A pre-commencement ceremony was held on August 8.
Shizen Energy, Alamport, and NiX have jointly established PT ATW Alam Hijau (Alam Energy) with ATW Group, which provides solar power generation equipment sales and construction services. Alam Energy provides solar rental services to manufacturers and other industrial customers as well as commercial facilities in Indonesia.
In this project, Alam Energy will install an industrial roof-mounted solar power plant with a total area of approximately 14,000㎡ on the roof of Eco Paper’s factory in Subang, Jawa Barat, Indonesia.
“The installation of a solar power plant in Eco Paper is a reflection on ALDO’s focus on sustainability and ESG. We are already producing green products and financed with green financing from BCA and HSBC. The next step is to utilize the green process through green energy which will be supplied by the solar power plant” said Willy Soesanto, Director of PT Alkindo Naratama Tbk.
Eco Paper will be able to benefit from price-competitive clean renewable energy without having to undertake initial investments such as the cost of installing solar power generation equipment. In addition, since Indonesia’s current main power generation method is coal-fired thermal power generation, switching a portion of power consumption to renewable energy sources is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by a total of more than 50,000 tons during the 25 years contract period, which will contribute to achieving the Indonesian government’s goal of carbon neutrality by 2060.
In order to “take action for the blue planet,” Shizen Energy will flexibly respond to various needs such as decarbonization and strengthening energy resilience by combining digital technologies such as EMS and storage batteries with the development of renewable energy power sources that exist in harmony with local communities. Together with partners, Shizen Energy aims to realize a 100% renewable energy world as soon as possible.
