KS Orka will be commissioning the first stage plant of its 240 MW Sorik Marapi geothermal power project in Indonesia in April 2018.

Project developer KS Orka continues its development efforts across Indonesia, Hungary, Serbia and Turkey. The company has now announced that the first plant for the 240 MW Sorik Marapi geothermal projects is to be commmissioned in April 2018.

This will mean that the plant will start operation only 18 months after spudding the first well drilled. This – so the company – is a great achievement for the project team and all involved. It will be the company’s second plant after its plant in Hungary went online last year.

Sorik Merapi 240 MW is one of the largest greenfield projects in Indonesia. KS ORKA is the 95% owner and developer of the project. Drilling works are progressing with two drilling rigs at the site.
