Toshiba Corp. has won an order to supply two 1000 MW ultra-supercritical steam turbines and generators (STG), main transformers and related equipment, and a 500 kV gas insulated switchgear (GIS) for Tanjung Jati B Coal-fired Power Plant Unit 5 & 6 Expansion Project in the Republic of Indonesia.
Toshiba will deliver the main equipment to the project site in 2019, with commercial operations scheduled for 2021. The project will add two 1000 MW ultra-supercritical power plants on a site adjacent to the existing Units 1 to 4.
Commenting on the order, Mr. Takao Konishi, Vice President of Toshiba’s Energy Systems & Solutions Co., said: “We have already supplied the plant with four 660MW STG for units 1 to 4, and I believe their excellent performance and the advanced technology of our equipment are major factors in winning this new order. The Indonesian government proposes to build an additional 35GW of power supply, and this Tanjung Jati B project is positioned as one of the main expansion projects and power sources. Tanjung Jati B will contribute to ease the increasing pressure for electricity demand. We are proud to be part of the project.”
Indonesia is the fourth-largest global coal producer and coal remains a major source to provide electricity to a large percentage of the country’s population.
