Mitsubishi Power begins operation of 500 MW natural gas-fired GTCC power generation system in Indonesia

Mitsubishi Power provided the full turnkey EPC solution with local state-owned civil construction firm WIKA.

Mitsubishi Power has completed the installation and commissioning of a 500 MW natural gas-fired gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) power generation system for the Muara Karang Power Plant, which has begun commercial operation. This new facility was built on the northwestern coast of Java by Indonesia's state-owned electricity provider PT. PLN (Persero). The installation of the GTCC system is part of the government's project to boost power supply capability to 35 GW. Mitsubishi Power is also supporting maintenance and management of the GTCC system via remote monitoring and stationing of a full-time engineer at the site, following the startup of operations.

Mitsubishi Power received the order for the full turnkey engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) solution for the GTCC power generation system, together with local state-owned civil construction firm PT. Wijaya Karya (Persero) Tbk. (WIKA). Mitsubishi Power supplied the M701F gas turbine, while Mitsubishi Electric Corporation supplied the electric generator systems.
