  • Sokoira Geothermal Project, Flores Island, Indonesia, 2016

As the client acquired the project, it became clear that the Transmission Power Charges (TPC) were on the critical path and were putting the Power Purchase Agreement at risk. SL Engineers developed scope, concept and managed the development of a 3D model of the transmission line using the PLS-CAD software, to be used for pricing and negotiation with PLN.
