Korean Heavy Industries manufacturing Doosan Viet Nam (Doosan Vina) has delivered the first shipment of main structural equipment under the Jawa 9 and 10 to the Jawa Thermal Power Plant in Indonesia after more than two months of production.

The company said the Jawa 9 and 10 project was signed in 2020 for the fabrication and supply of more than 36,000 tonnes of non-pressure equipment including the boiler structure, pipe, support column, coal storage system, desulphurisation system, and other equipment to install at the Jawa Thermal power plant located in Banten, Indonesia.

The Quang Ngai Province-made equipment will support the boiler system, coal transporters, and coal dust processing at the Jawa thermal power plant.

The project has two units with 1,000MW each and is constructed by PT HutamaKarya and Doosan Heavy Industries and Construction under an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract.

The project has a total investment of up to US$3.2 billion and is built in the Cilegon industrial city located on the west coast of Java Island.

"This is the first time Doosan Vina has manufactured for such a large capacity thermal power plant. These are two environmentally friendly coal-fired plants, using ultra-supercritical technology with a steam pressure of 246 kg/cm2 above and a steam temperature of more than 593 degrees Celsius,” said Seo Deog-won, director of the firm's material handling systems department.

“The power generation efficiency will be higher, the fuel consumption will be lower, the greenhouse gas emissions will be less and that means the operating efficiency of the plant will be higher with the installation of the equipment,” he said.

He added that the Jawa 9 plant will be put into operation in 2023 and the Jawa 10 will come into operation the following year.

Earlier this year, Doosan Vina exported a batch of waste to energy components to a power plant at Fushimi, Kyoto, Japan and petrochemical equipment to Thailand. — VNS
