Black & Veatch will oversee the scheduling, design, quality control of equipment supplied, and construction activity for the 1,000 megawatt (MW) Cirebon 2 Project just east of the City of Cirebon in West Java, Indonesia.
Black & Veatch has been appointed as the Owner’s Engineer by P.T. Cirebon Energi Prasarana, the project company, to help deliver an operationally efficient coal power plant.
The expansion of the existing facility with a 1,000 MW coal-fired ultra-supercritical (USC) unit will serve as a key base-load generation asset for Indonesia’s power grid as part of the government’s 35,000 MW expansion plan.
The Owner’s consortium consists of Marubeni Corporation, PT. Indika Energy Tbk, Samtan Co., Ltd., Korea Midland Power Co., Ltd., and JERA Co., Inc.
Tariq Aziz, Director, South Asia, Power Generation Services, Black & Veatch, said:
“We are playing a critical role in helping the Owner prepare the project for construction and are focusing on overseeing the contractors’ performance as well as the quality of equipment supplied. Our role includes review of the engineering design documents, carrying out shop inspections in person and monitoring the delivery of key components throughout the supply chain.”
In May we informed that Marubeni Coporation entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Korea Midland Power (KOMIPO), Samtan, and PT. Indika Energi Internasional to jointly develop the 1,000 MW Cirebon 3 Coal Fired Power Plant in the area adjacent to the Cirebon 1 & 2 Coal Fired Power Plants in West Java Province, Indonesia.
