Magdeburg, Germany, 2016/06/30 - With a technically convincing proposal as well as with the support from our parent company, Tractebel, Lahmeyer International has won a major project in Indonesia - Lahmeyer.de.
The main task in this project is awarding 7 EPC contracts for the national electricity company PT PLN (Persero). The project covers 17 sites throughout Indonesia. It will produce a total generating capacity of 935 MW.
The project scope includes the preparation of a market analysis, detailed cost estimates for the plants, the review of tender documents, prequalification of suppliers, and the award processes for the EPC lots. Each EPC contract will contain between 1 and 6 individual sites. Gas engine and gas turbine power plants, a combined cycle power plant as well as a coal-fired power plant will produce electrical outputs ranging from 20 to 200 MW at the various locations. The short project duration of only six months will put great demands on the whole team.
The project is part of the Indonesian infrastructure programme envisaging to provide an additional 35 GW of installed capacity by 2019. This measure will considerably improve energy supply for the populous archipelago state, and will create good preconditions to attract new industries. Up to now, the majority of the country’s added value is based on the sale of raw materials. The programme was initiated in 2015.
