Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation has won a contract to supply a set of steam turbine and generator for a 10-MW geothermal power plant in Indonesia.
Engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company PT Inti Karya Persada Tehnik (IKPT) has ordered the equipment for a small-scale project developed by state-owned geothermal company PT Geo Dipa Energi, also known as Persero, in the Dieng plateau in Central Java.
The project will use Toshiba ESS’s Geoportable power generation system. The company has already started the design and engineering work and expects that the whole plant will be up and running in March 2021.
According to the business plan of local power distributor PT PLN for 2019-2028, the country should have some 4,600 MW of new geothermal power plants by the end of the period. Indonesia’s estimated geothermal energy resource amounts to 29,500 MW.
