Samsung C&T to build new power plant in Indonesia

Samsung C&T has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to build a 1,760 MW combined cycle power plant in Indonesia. The US$1 billion project, located in Cilamaya, will be developed by PT Jawa Satu Power, a consortium of PT Pertamina (Persero), Marubeni Corporation and Sojitz Corporation. Samsung C&T will form a joint venture agreement with General Electric (GE) Power and PT Meindo Elang Indah (Meindo).

The new Jawa 1 power plant is part of the government’s 35,000 MW electrification programme, and is expected to be the biggest combined cycle power plant in Southeast Asia. Upon its completion, the plant will supply electricity to approximately 11 million homes.

“We are very pleased to take part in the Jawa 1 power plant project, which will contribute to energy development in Indonesia. Based on Samsung C&T’s core values of quality and safety, we look forward to delivering a successful project together with our partners” said Sechul Oh, head of Samsung C&T’s Plant Business Unit.

Samsung C&T has successfully completed various power plant projects around the world, including Muara Tawar power plant in Indonesia, Dongducheon CCPP and Kumho CHP-S1 projects in Korea, EMAL Phase 2 CCPP and Shuweihat 2 CCPP in the UAE.
