(SeeNews) - Oct 9, 2013 - US-based SunEdison Inc (NYSE:SUNE), former MEMC Electronic Materials Inc, will equip with solar systems several airports run by Indonesian firm PT Angkasa Pura I, the Jakarta Post said today.

The semiconductor and solar technology provider will install solar panels at the airports of the government-controlled airport operator, including those in Bali, Balikpapan, Surabaya and Makassar. The contract, signed on Tuesday, is one of several business deals for the purchase and construction of renewable energy capacity in Southeast Asia that were struck on the sidelines of the Asia and Pacific Economic (APEC) forum’s meeting in Bali. Project details and capacities were not available.

Another deal that was signed at the event is for the delivery of environmentally friendly batteries to mobile network operator Indosat. The batteries will be supplied by PT Fluidic Indonesia, a unit of US firm Fluidic Energy.

Last but not least, US geothermal power firm Ormat Technologies Inc (NYSE:ORA) struck a deal to take a 90% stake in and develop an up to 60-MW greenfield geothermal project on Indonesia’s Sumbawa Island. The project is calling for an investment of USD 250 million (EUR 185m), according to Jakarta Post's report.
