GE to provide gas turbines for $2 billion Indonesian plant

Published on: 

A consortium made up of Indonesia's state energy firm PT Pertamina and Japan's Marubeni Corp has recently signed a deal with General Electric for the U.S. firm to provide gas turbines for a $2 billion power plant in Java.

The consortium intends to bid to construct and operate the 1,600 MW gas and steam power station in Indonesia, in a tender held by state utility firm PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara in May. The consortium has also asked South Korea's Samsung C&T Corp to provide engineering, procurement and construction for the power plant.


Indonesia has set a goal of building more than 35 GW of power stations by 2019, and most of them are expected to be coal-powered.
