Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems together with Mitsubishi Corporation and PT Wasa Mitra Engineering, a local construction and engineering firm, has received a full-turnkey order for an 880 MW natural-gas-fired gas turbine combined cycle power plant from PT. PLN (Persero), Indonesia’s state-owned electricity company.
The project, named ‘Jawa-2 Combined Cycle Power Plant Project’ is to construct a new power plant on the site of the Tanjung Priok power plant, located approximately 10 km northeast of the centre of Jakarta, for which MHPS (then MHI) constructed a 750 MW CCGT in 2012 as Block No.3. Operation of the new power plant will be commenced in 2018. The Jawa-2 project is part of a 35 GW power expansion programme under way by the Indonesian government to meet the country’s rapidly increasing demand for electric power along with economic growth.
MHPS will supply two M701F4 gas turbines, two heat recovery steam generators (HRSG), one steam turbine and the balance of plant (BOP). Mitsubishi Electric Corporation will supply the generators. WASA will perform installation work, and another local company will undertake civil work.
MHPS has a strong track record delivering large gas turbine plants to Indonesia. This includes the delivery of two M701F GTs to PLN’s Cilegon plant in 2006, the country’s first introduction of the F-type gas turbine, then two M701F gas turbines to Muara Karang in 2011 and Tanjung Priok Block 3 in 2012.
