Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) has completed the construction of Unit 1 of a natural gas-fired power generation facility being established by PT PLN (Persero), Indonesia’s state-owned electricity provider, on the premises of the Tanjung Priok Power Plant on Java Island.
PLN intends to construct an 880MW plant comprising two gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) power generation systems under Jawa-2 Project.
Initially, Unit 1 has gone into operation as a simple gas turbine system, with output currently near 300MW.
PLN director WS Haryanto said: “We appreciate MHPS’ enormous efforts for this project. We are sure that the strong relationship between PLN and MHPS will continue in the future. As a result, the operation of Unit 2 as a simple gas turbine and combined cycle operation will also begin as contracted delivery schedule.”
The project is being constructed at Tanjung Priok, a port city 10km northeast of central Jakarta, the Indonesian capital.
MHPS, in partnership with Mitsubishi Corporation and PT Wasa Mitra Engineering, a local construction and engineering firm, received the full-turnkey order for the power plant.
MHPS will provide two M701F gas turbines as well as two exhaust heat recovery boilers, one steam turbine, and auxiliary equipment. Mitsubishi Electric has supplied the generators.
Operations as a GTCC system, generating power by gas turbine and by a steam turbine utilising recovered exhaust heat, is scheduled to begin in 2019.
The project is part of a 35,000MW power expansion programme taken up by the Indonesian government to meet the increasing demand for electricity.
The company has completed the construction of Unit 1 ahead of schedule.
MHPS supplies large-scale gas turbines in Indonesia and has been supporting the country’s power supplies nearly 50 years.
The company aims to increase its presence in the Indonesian power market. MHPS intends to continue making contributions to promoting effective use of resources and reducing environmental loads on global scale through the expanded adoption of high-efficiency power generation facilities.
