Power Watch India - - DESPATCHES FINANCE -

Toshiba Cor­po­ra­tion an­nounced that it has won an or­der to sup­ply two 1,000 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 and 6 ex­pan­sion pro­ject in In­done­sia. Toshiba will start de­liv­ery of main equip­ment to the pro­ject site from 2019. The plant will com­mence com­mer­cial op­er­a­tion in 2021, and its out­put ca­pac­ity will num­ber it among In­done­sia’s largest plants. The pro­ject will add two 1,000 MW ul­tra-su­per­crit­i­cal power plants on a site ad­ja­cent to the ex­ist­ing Units 1 to 4. 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. The In­done­sian gov­ern­ment aims to re­duce CO2 emis­sions by 29 per cent in 2019 by re­quir­ing coal-fired power pro­duc­ers to use clean coal and low-emis­sions tech­nol­ogy.
