A senior Indonesian energy ministry official said Arus Indonesia Raya (AIR) and Naval Energies will collaborate to utilize the straits between two islands in 10 locations in Indonesia to generate considerable energy potential as an electric powerhouse.

Director General of New Renewable Energy at the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources of Indonesia, Rida Mulyana, said the government welcomes the plan of AIR and Naval Energies to develop the ocean streams energy industry in Indonesia.

"This technology is one of the ways in the development of ocean wave energy in Indonesia to meet the mixed targets of 23 percent renewable energy by 2025," Mulyana said on Tuesday.

Naval Energies has a simple turbine technology that has only one part that moves using seawater as a lubricant. Technology allows lower operational and maintenance costs compared to propeller technology.

The OpenHold Open-Center Turbine platform has a diameter of 16 meters and a water streams velocity of 2-5 meters per second to generate 2 megawatts (MW) of electricity. In development, turbines will be arranged in series to obtain optimal capacity.

Earlier, Indonesia's Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, Ignatius Jonan, also announced investors from the Netherlands will build a 20 MW marine wave power plant in the Larantuka Strait, East Nusa Tenggara Province, at a price of US$7.18 cents per kWh.
