The project, under the auspices of Indonesia's state-owned electricity provider PT. PLN (Persero) is located at the Tanjung Priok Power Plant on Java Island. Commercial operation of Jawa-2 began last year for Units 1 and 2 in simple cycle mode. As with the simple cycle mode, the construction of the exhaust heat recovery boilers and steam turbine was completed ahead of schedule and allowed for an early turnover.
Jawa-2, located in the port city Tanjung Priok is approximately 10 km northeast of central Jakarta. The full turnkey contract was received by Mitsubishi Corporation and local construction and engineering firm Wasa Mitra Engineering. MHPS provided two M701F gas turbines, two exhaust heat recovery boilers, one steam turbine, and auxiliary equipment. The generators were manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric Corporation.
Indonesia is currently pursuing a large-scale thermal power expansion program centred on the West Java region around Jakarta. The Jawa-2 projects is part of a government initiative to add 35GW in generating capacity that is necessary to address the rapidly growing demand for power accompanying the country's economic growth. MHPS' successful completion of this project ahead of schedule contributed to the realisation of the government's plan. Also the project has been given an annual award in the category of "Natural Gas-Fired Power Project of the Year" from Asian Power Awards 2019.
