RFP Drone for Topography Mapping of Hydropower Project


Indonesia Clean Energy Development (ICED) II Project is a technical assistance program funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in the energy sector. ICED II is the second phase of ICED I program that ran from March 2011 through February 2015. ICED II was launched in May 2015 and will run through 2020. ICED support government, private sector and civil society in increasing the contribution of clean energy efficiency resources (renewable energy, energy efficiency and energy conservation) in Indonesia.

ICED II advises renewable energy project developers and energy efficiency hosts in assessing the feasibility of clean energy technology applications. ICED II also offers local banks and financial institutions assistance in evaluating project financing proposals. In support of this, ICED II will conduct topography mapping of mini hydro projects that are located within ICED II project sites. The topography mapping is expected to better understand and explore potentials of hydro power in the area.

ICED II will require drones, unmanned aircraft guided by onboard computers, to carry out the topography mapping activity. Drones are alternative tools to conventional topography mapping tools such as theodolite and total station.
