PT Geo Dipa Energi is preparing work on its 250 MW geothermal development activities at Dieng, Banjarnegara and Patuha in Indonesia having informed KPK to ensure integrity and professionalism in the development.

PT Geo Dipa Energi prepares the construction of Geothermal Power Plants (PLTP) in Dieng, Banjarnegara and Patuha, Bandung. To prepare the Mega Project, Geo Dipa has informed the KPK in Indonesia. The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK)’s role is to secure conserving natural resources of the country, not only as law enforcement but also in building an effective prevention system.
