Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems has won a full-turnkey order for an 800 MW gas-fired power plant in Indonesia.
MHPS will built the combined-cycle plant with Mitsubishi Corporation and Indonesian construction and engineering firm PT. Wasa Mitra Engineering (WASA).
The Jawa-2 plant is expected to be operational in 2018 and will be operated by state-owned electricity company PT. PLN and will be built on the site of the existing Tanjung Priok power station, just northeast of Jakarta.
The new plant is part of a 35,000 MW power expansion programme launched by the Indonesian government to meet the country’s rapidly increasing demand for power, which is being driven by economic growth.
MHPS will supply two M701F4 gas turbines, two heat recovery steam generators, and one steam turbine, as well as the balance of plant.
Mitsubishi Electric Corporation will supply the generators while WASA will perform installation work.
MHPS delivered the first F-type gas turbines into Indonesia in 2006 when it supplied two of them to PLN’s Cilegon plant. Since then, MHPS has supplied M701F turbines to Muara Karang plant in 2011 and Tanjung Priok plant in 2012.
