Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction said on March 20 that it has signed a contract with Indonesia's IRT (PT. Indo Raya Tenaga) to build the Jawa 9 and 10 thermal power plants. It is a project won through a consortium with the local state-run builder HK, with a total construction cost of about 1.9 trillion won. Doosan Heavy's orders received worth 1.6 trillion won.
IRT, the owner of the order, is a special purpose company jointly funded by Indonesia Power, a subsidiary of Indonesia's PNL, and Barito Pacific Group, which specializes in power generation and petrochemicals.
The Jawa 9 and 10 power plants will be built in the Cilegon area in western Java Island, about 120 kilometers from Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia. Doosan Heavy will manufacture and supply two 1,000-MW plants in a method of USC in line with the global environmental standard. It is an EPC (Engineering, Procurement & Construction) method that carries out design, procurement, and construction in a package, and plans to be completed in 2024.
Ultra Super Critical (USC) thermal power generation means a plant with a steam pressure of 246 kg/cm2 or higher entering the turbine and a steam temperature of 593 degrees or higher.
According to the company, the higher the steam pressure and temperature go, the more efficient power generation becomes, reducing fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
"This time, our company has signed a contract to build a high-efficiency power plant that meets global environmental standards. We are planning to continue expanding opportunities for new thermal power generation projects," a Doosan official said.
