Jakarta – PT Pertamina Geothermal Energy (PGE) Tbk, a sub-holding of Pertamina, is targeting 1 Giga Watt (GW) of installed and self-managed generating capacity within the next two years. To achieve this target, PGE signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with multiple parties at the EBTKE ConEx, 12-14 July 2023.
President Director of Pertamina Geothermal Energy, Julfi Hadi, said that a memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed with PT Pembangunan Aceh (PEMA) for the development of the Geothermal Working Area (GWA) in Seulawah (Aceh Province).
