Wayang Windu Geothermal Power Station

The Wayang Windu Geothermal Power Station is the largest geothermal power station in Indonesia. The facility utilizes two units, one with 110 MW and the other with 117 MW, with a total installed capacity of 227 MW. The power station is located near the town of Pangalengan, 40 km south of Bandung,[1] West Java. An estimated cost of US$200 million was incurred in construction and development.[2] A third unit of 127 MW is being planned and expected to be onstream by mid-2013.[1]
