Jakarta, 9 August 2016 – Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) through Directorate General for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (DG NREEC) implements several pilot project on green cooling technology in five industrial sector: hotel, food and beverage, commercial buildings, supermarket, and pharmaceutical. In cooperation with PT Phapros Tbk, MEMR has commitment to install hydrocarbon refrigerant in building facility owned by PT Phapros Tbk.
Under bilateral cooperation between Indonesia and Germany, Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) provides technical support in the green chiller installation at PT Phapros Tbk. The signing of memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed by Mrs. Farida Zed (Director of Energy Conservation, DG NREEC) and Mrs. Barokah Sri Utami (President Director PT Phapros Tbk).
Mrs Farida Zed said that hydrocarbon refrigerant chiller will reduce synthesis refrigerant import. Besides, hydrocarbon refrigerant is environment-friendly so that the users could reduce energy consumption of the chiller. “Involving private sector, especially the industry, to use hydrocarbon refrigerant chiller is expected to decrease energy consumption in the sector”, Mrs. Zed explains.
Benefits that the participating private sector the pilot project are energy saving up to twenty percent from hydrocarbon chiller system, and getting technical support and training for the installation, operation and maintenance of hydrocarbon chiller.
