Pöyry wins assignment for plant in Indonesia

Pöyry awarded owner’s engineer services assignment for coal-fired power plant project, Indonesia

PT Tanjung Power Indonesia (TPI) has awarded Pöyry with the Owner’s Engineer services assignment for Kalsel-1 2 x 100 MW Coal Fired Power Plant Project in South Kalimantan, Indonesia. The Shareholders of TPI are PT Adaro Power and Korea East-West Power Co.,Ltd.

Pöyry’s assignment includes project management services and design review services for the project. The overall schedule for the project is 33 months and the project is scheduled to be completed by July 2018. The power plant is being implemented under Indonesia’s Independent Power Producer (IPP) scheme, whereby the electricity is sold to the Indonesian government-owned electricity company PT PLN Persero (PLN).

This is a continuation of Pöyry’s earlier assignment in the same project. Pöyry has been involved in the project from the start of the development phase, assisting TPI in the preliminary design, IPP bidding, EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) tendering and contract negotiations.

“After successfully completing the project development phase, we are pleased to continue our good cooperation with Adaro Power and Korea East-West Power in executing this important project. This project illustrates the value added that Pöyry can provide for power projects from the early development phase through engineering, construction and commissioning phases. In Indonesia, Pöyry is currently helping our clients in several coal and gas-fired, hydro power and renewable energy projects, in plant capacities up to 2,000 MW”, says Dr Raffael Schubiger, Head of Thermal Power at Pöyry.

The value of the order is not disclosed. The order has been recognised within the Energy Business Group order stock in Q1 2015.
