It was conferred the Gold award for Gas Engine Combined Cycle Power Project of the Year (regional award) and Gas Power Project of the Year - Indonesia (country award).
Operating with 60.7% efficiency and heat rate of 1,415 kCal/kWh, the 500 MW facility is the most efficient power generation facility in Indonesia, and is one of the most advanced in terms of its environmental performance and generation costs.
It plays a key role in meeting the rapidly rising demand for energy in West Java and supports the Indonesian government's plans to boost national power supply capability by an additional 35 GW between 2015 and 2019, and a further 45 GW by 2025.
Maryono, General Manager, Muara Karang Power Plant Unit, said: "The Muara Karang Power Plant plays an important role in supplying electricity to critical facilities in the metropolitan area and continues to be a role model in power plant development nationwide. PLN Nusantara Power is appreciative of Mitsubishi Power's unwavering support and strong partnership - from construction to maintenance and management of the facility - as we continue to empower the nation with secure and sustainable energy."
Osamu Ono, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Mitsubishi Power Asia Pacific, said: "This recognition of the Muara Karang project is a reflection of the world-class technologies and services that we offer to help Indonesia take decisive steps in addressing energy security and sustainability. Through close relationships with local power providers such as PLN and PLN Nusantara Power built over the last half-century, Mitsubishi Power continues to uphold our commitment towards advancing reliable and efficient power generation in the country."
In 2016, Mitsubishi Power received an order for the full turnkey engineering, procurement, and construction solution of the third block of the Muara Karang power plant to increase the facility's power generation capacity.
As part of the project, the company supplied an M701F gas turbine and a steam turbine, and provided maintenance support including installation of advanced control systems, remote monitoring and assignment of a full-time on-site service engineer.
Despite challenges due to the pandemic, Mitsubishi Power managed to complete the expansion a month ahead of schedule in October 2021.
