Italy’s Ansaldo Energia has been given notice to proceed on equipping a gas-fired power plant and a geothermal power plant in Indonesia.

The contracts, worth $87m (EUR80m) had been initially signed late in 2015.

The first covers the supply of two AE94.2 gas turbines and two air-cooled generators with the relative auxiliary systems for the 500MW Grati-Pasuran combined cycle gas-fired power plant in eastern Java.

The Customer is Lotte E&C, a member of the consortium that won the international call for tenders issued by PT PLN, the country’s state-owned electricity authority.

The second contract covers the total refurbishment of a 30 MW geothermal plant located in Kamojang in western Java. Ansaldo Energia is acting as EPC and supplying the geothermal steam turbine and relative air-cooled generator.

The customer is PT PLN company Indonesia Power. The two contracts increase the total geothermal output installed by Ansaldo Energia in the area to 270 MW.

To supervise these activities and to be in the best possible position to seize future opportunities in a market with promising prospects, Ansaldo Energia recently opened a branch office in Jakarta, with a ceremony attended by the Italian ambassador in Indonesia Vittorio Sandalli. The aim of Ansaldo Energia with the new office is to give the Group an even more solid base in Southeast Asia.
