MHPS begins construction work for Cirebon coal plant expansion

Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Ltd (MHPS) has started construction work for the Cirebon coal-fired power plant expansion project in Indonesia. Construction will be carried out, on a full-turnkey basis, on the 1 GW large-scale ultra-supercritical-pressure coal-fired power plant in West Java Province, in consortium with Toshiba Group and Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co. Ltd.

Under the EPC (engineering, procurement, construction) contract, MHPS will supply the plant's ultra-supercritical-pressure boiler and fluegas desulfurisation (FGD) system. The plant is scheduled to begin commercial operation in 2022.

The power plant is being built by PT Cirebon Energi Prasarana (CEPR), an entity collectively financed by Marubeni Corp., JERA Co. Inc., PT Indika Energy Tbk, Samtan Co. Ltd, and Korea Midland Power Co. Ltd. CEPR concluded an EPC contract with MHPS and its consortium partners in 2015. The project will expand the 660 MW coal-fired IPP (independent power producer) business currently operated at the site by Marubeni. Once on-stream, the expanded plant will supply power to PT PLN (Persero), Indonesia's state-owned electricity utility, through a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA). Together with the existing plant, the new facility at Cirebon will help meet Indonesia' increasing energy demand.

In addition to manufacturing, supplying and procuring equipment, MHPS will also take charge of trial operations. MHPS currently has the largest share of the global market for wet-type FGD systems, thereby contributing to the reduction of environmental burdens.
