The plant is expected to cost US$1.68b in construction.
South Korean engineering company Doosan Heavy Industries (DHI) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the domestic power company PT Indo Raya Tenaga (IRT) for the construction of the two 1,000 MW Jawa 9 & 10 ultra-supercritical (USC) coal-fired power plants in Cilegon (120 km from Jakarta, Banten province, Java, Indonesia). The total construction cost of the units is expected to amount KRW1,900bn (US$1.68bn), of which KRW1,500bn (US$1.33bn) for the contract with DHI.
The two units are currently scheduled to be built in 2023 and will be operated by IRT, a joint venture (JV) between PT Indonesia Power and PT Barito Pacific. USC coal-fired plants require less coal per MWh, have higher efficiency and lower fuel costs.
