INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation (ESS) announced today that construction work on the expansion of Cirebon steam power plant in Indonesia has begun. Toshiba will provide and install a steam turbine and a 1,000 MW ultra supercritical generator for power generation

Toshiba Corporation together with Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. and Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co., Ltd. members of the EPC consortium are awarded an expansion contract by PT. Cirebon Energy Infrastructure (CEPR), owner and operator of this power plant.

After the expansion power plant commences its commercial operation in 2022, the expansion plant, together with the Cirebon steam power plant already in operation, will contribute to easing the burden of rising electricity demand, under a long-term power purchase agreement with a state-owned power company PT. PLN (Persero).

Economic progress and growing demand are increasingly burdening the current power supply capability in Indonesia. The Government of Indonesia continues its efforts to meet current and future demand, and sets out to build 35GW of additional power supplies.

"Toshiba has a track record in supplying ultra-supercritical steam power equipment worldwide," said Mr. Takao Konishi, Director, and Vice President of Systems & Services Division of Thermal & Hydro at ESS in his press conference here on Friday (17/11 / 2017).

 "I am very excited to be fully embarking on EPC work right now.We will work with consortium members to combine our expertise and technology and bring great success to the Cirebon expansion project." He concluded.

The project is positioned as one of Indonesia's major expansion and power projects. Toshiba continues to provide diverse energy solutions and cutting-edge technology that can reliably contribute to the stability and energy security in Indonesia and around the world.
