Sumitomo Wins EPC Contract for Coal-fired Power Plant in Indonesia
 

Tokyo, Dec 18, 2012 (JCN) - Sumitomo Corporation has won a bid for a complete set of coal-fired power generation facilities, 30,000kW x 2 units, on an Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC) basis from Indonesian state-run mining and metals company PT Antam (Persero) Tbk.

Antam has been engaged in the refining business of nickel in Pomalaa on Sulawesi Island, Indonesia since the 1970s. According to the expansion plans of the plant, the company will newly construct a complete set of coal-fired power generation facilities utilizing circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boilers.

Sumitomo Corporation won the bid through an international bidding process and will undertake the construction of the power generation plant in December 2012. The value of construction orders received is approximately 12 billion yen, and construction is planned to be completed by June 2015.

CFB boilers can utilize low-grade coal, which accounts for a majority of coal reserves in Indonesia but has not yet been employed much to date, for fuel. Thus, it is expected that this will promote the development of low-grade coal in Indonesia, which will contribute to the efficient development of natural resources and new power sources.

The power generation equipment including the CFB boilers that will be employed in this project will be delivered by Sumitomo Heavy Industries, Ltd., a leading company in the field of power generation facilities.

Sumitomo Corporation now has over 10,000 megawatts of electric power generation capacity in Indonesia in which it has engaged in construction and delivery of equipment. This amounts to about 25% of the country's power supply capability.
