INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Japanese company, PT Sumitomo Heavy Industries Ltd (SHI), offers technology "Circulating Fluidized Bed (CFB) Boiler" to help Indonesia achieve its 35,000 MW power generation program target.

"We know that the Indonesian government has established a 35,000 MW national action plan and a 30 percent renewable energy mix target by 2025. This technology can be used to realize the plan," said President Director of PT SHI Indonesia Masaru Ishii at a seminar on CFB Boiler in Jakarta, Tuesday (5/12/2017).

CFB Boiler is a technology that can handle combustion of various types of coal, including low rank coal with high moisture content and low calorific value, efficiently and stable.

In recent years the technology has been used to process fuel from waste and used tires, to support the use of environmentally friendly renewable technologies.

Currently PT SHI has applied CFB Boiler technology at the ferro-nickel smelter owned by PT Antam Tbk in Southeast Sulawesi which generates 2x30 MW electricity and power plant project owned by PT Tanjung Power Indonesia in South Kalimantan which produces 2x115 MW of electricity from coal rank low.

Furthermore, the company will explore cooperation with PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) for electricity supply in Java Island.

"The power plant in Java Island will mostly use CFB Boiler for fuel consideration, while high calorie coal will be processed in Kalimantan and Sumatera," said Masaru.

The project, which will begin cultivating in 2018 or 2019, is believed to have high efficiency value with a far lower total operating cost as it uses low rank coal as fuel.

Globally, PT SHI has developed 491 units of CFB Boiler technology that can produce a total of 37,000 MW of electrical energy such as in South Korea, Vietnam, Philippines and some European countries. (Ant)
