Salak Field was located in two counties Sukabumi and Bogor, and also in the middle of Halimun Mountain National Park at elevation 1300-1400 m above sea level . The geothermal energy which is produced here is used to generate electricity that were interconnected to Java and Bali. Most of the electricity which is produced here, was distributed to Bogor and Sukabumi. This field is the largest producer of geothermal energy in Indonesia and sixth largest in the world, it’s generated up to 377 MW. Salak Field has 2 main facilities : “Resource Production Facility” to produce the steam and Power Generation Facility to generate the electricity. The first production of this field was at 1994 and has 95 wells in total. Hydrothermal system in this field is a liquid-dominated system. This liquid in the system was being pumped, but only the vapor from this hot liquid that will be used, the remaining liquid will be reinjected again to ground and after it heated again, the liquid would be pumped again. So it’s like cycle, that’s why people said geothermal energy is renewable energy. When participants trip around this field, they were shown the location of fumaroles, the wells where liquid was pumped and reinjected, and production facilities in this field.
