Japan's MHPS Completes Indonesia CCGT
Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) has completed the installation and commissioning of the natural gas-fired combined cycle gas turbine facilities for the Jawa-2 project in Indonesia, it said October 10.
The project, under the auspices of Indonesia's state-owned electricity provider PLN, is at the Tanjung Priok Power Plant on Java Island. Commercial operation of Jawa-2 began last year for Units 1 and 2 in simple cycle mode. The full turnkey contract was received by Mitsubishi Corporation and local construction and engineering firm Wasa Mitra Engineering. MHPS provided two M701F gas turbines, two exhaust heat recovery boilers, one steam turbine, and auxiliary equipment. The generators were manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric Corporation.
The Jawa-2 project is part of a government initiative to add 35 GW in generating capacity that is necessary to address the rapidly growing demand for power accompanying the country's economic growth, MHPS said.
