Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation announced that Toshiba Hydro Power Co., Ltd. (THPC) and PT. Toshiba Asia Pacific Indonesia (TAPI)  have won a major order from a hydropower plant project company affiliated under Bukaka for conducting energy and infrastructure business in Indonesia to manufacture four 105 MW hydro turbines for the Kerinci Merangin Hydro Electric Power Plant, which is located at the center of Sumatra Island, Indonesia. Delivery of the equipment will begin from September 2023.

Because the head at the Kerinci Hydropower Plant is higher than 400 meters, technologies to meet the high head and rotating speed are required for delivering hydro turbines. 

Toshiba ESS and THPC won the order because they were evaluated for their strong technical capabilities, the high reliability of their equipment, and their experience in delivering hydropower equipment to clients all over the world. 

Furthermore, TAPI also contributed to sales activities and has earned customer trust as a partner, even though opportunities for overseas business trips have been limited because of COVID-19.

Shinya Fujitsuka, Director and Senior Vice President of the Power Systems Division at Toshiba ESS, said, "I'm pleased that we received orders for hydro turbines and associated equipment for the Kerinci Hydropower Plant in Indonesia. Toshiba ESS will continue to contribute to supplying highly reliable equipment for hydropower plants all over the world in cooperation with local, reliable hubs in order to realize carbon-neutral electricity generation."

THPC has received orders for hydropower plant equipment from the Bukaka Group continuously since 2016 for Indonesia's four plants, including the Malea 1 Hydropower Plant, which started commercial operation in July 2021. Moreover, THPC received an order for hydropower generator units in March of last year, and as a result, the orders THPC received became an entire set of hydropower equipment for the Kerinci Hydropower Plant.
 
This time, THPC will work for the design and manufacturing of the hydro turbines at THPC's operations in China, and TAPI will handle the dispatch of instructors for installation work on site, and offer online technical guidance so that the project can be carried out as planned without delay even to COVID-19.
