Modern Energy Management (MEM) is to carry out marine warranty surveying (MWS) services at Indonesia’s first utility-scale wind project, Sidrap Wind Farm, on behalf of GCube Underwriting Ltd. (GCube). Under the terms of the agreement, MEM will provide risk management services related to the offloading of wind turbine generator components for the 75MW wind farm.

Indonesia is undertaking significant investment in its ports and harbours in order to better facilitate the import of capital equipment. Whilst this process takes place, however, wind energy developers require the confidence of a secure and comprehensive marine warranty service to ensure that large parts and components arrive at the project site undamaged and on time. The site’s remote and challenging landscape poses logistical challenges for the construction team, and will require components to be offloaded at a jetty specially-constructed for the project. MEM will oversee the components’ offloading, before they are transported to the project site itself. The Sidrap wind farm, located on a series of ridges in Northern South Sulawesi, will consist of 30 Siemens Gamesa turbines and is scheduled for completion in January 2018.
