Abstract

To provide electricity for the Maluku, Papua, and Nusa Tenggara regions, the government plans to utilize 232 MW of solar energy in 2021-2030. An alternative solar power plant using floating photovoltaic (FPV) can be used especially around East Nusa Tenggara (NTT). This research presents a feasibility study of FPV development around the coast of NTT which aims to identify effective location for FPV structure for generating solar energy using analysis methods benefit-cost ratio (BCR). Eleven variations of energy requirements were evaluated between 20-70 MW with 5 MW interval for 2x2 FPV layout design. The current result shows that the effective location for FPV is at -10.237679 south latitude and 123.483909 east longitude which is around coastal area of Kupang City. The location was chosen due to its optimal 30 MW energy requirement value with 17,266.60 m^2 areas, investment cost of $4,719,000, and economically feasible BCR of 1,116 (BCR > 1).
