Indonesia’s State-owned power utility, PT PLN (Persero) (PLN) has (again) invited renewable developers to submit applications to be included on the List of Selected Providers (commonly referred to by its Bahasa Indonesia acronym as DPT) for solar PV, hybrid energy, wind, biomass, biogas, biofuel, tidal, and new energy.
PLN first opened the DPT prequalification process for similar types of renewable projects in October 2017 and the results were announced more than a year later, in November 2018. Pending the result of the DPT prequalification process, the procurement process for renewable projects was effectively put on hold, with PLN not issuing any bid packages for renewable projects for more than 12
months whilst this DPT process was being undertaken.
PLN also opened a DPT prequalification process for large hydro developers in April 2018, and the result is yet to be announced. In the meantime, various PLN Regional offices have also been opening DPT prequalification processes for IPP developers who are looking into small scale renewable projects (up to 10MW).
This new DPT prequalification process opened by Central PLN (PLN Pusat) allows developers who either missed the window to participate in, or were not successful in, PLN's 2017 DPT process to apply (or re-apply) to be included in the DPT.
