The ITB International Geothermal Workshop is featuring a field trip to the nearby 55 MW Patuha geothermal power plant on April 1, 2016.

The ITB International Geothermal Workshop in Bandung, Indonesia is featuring a field trip to the Patuha geothermal plant near Bandung on April 1, 2016.

The Patuha geothermal system is a vapor-dominated reservoir located about 40 kilometers southwest of Bandung on western Java, Indonesia. The geothermal system consists of a cap rock, an underlying steam cap and a deep liquid-dominated reservoir. The reservoir is provided with heat by a main heat source below Kawah Putih and the Patuha volcano. The flow of fluid takes place through fault zones and in the low permeability reservoir rock. . The first Unit (55 MW) at Patuha was completed in 2014 and since 2015 it has been producing at full capacity (with an availability rate of over 98%).

Purpose

This one full day field trip to Patuha Geothermal Plant provides an introduction to geothermal resources and their utilization. The trip may include visits to Patuha Power Plant, Steam Field, Surface Facilities and observations to the surface features/manifestations of the Patuha thermal areas.
