In 2017, the Indonesian government announced their 35 GW Initiative, an ambitious plan to make power more accessible and affordable throughout the country. With the commissioning of the Jawa 1 power plant, and the arrival of the project’s first gas turbine—a GE 9HA.02—Indonesia is one step closer to its goal.
The 9HA.02 was shipped globally from its factory in Belfort, France, during the COVID-19 pandemic, and puts the entire power plant project on track towards the start of commercial operations at the end of 2021.

We are encouraged and proud by the arrival of the first HA gas turbine for the Jawa-1 project and the construction progress made despite the challenges surrounding COVID-19. The achievement would not have happened without the strong synergies between Jawa Satu Power with consortium partners led by GE.
Acting Chief Executive Officer, PT Jawa Satu Power
Shipping something the size of a 9HA.02 gas turbine is daunting at the best of the times, but doing so during a global pandemic presented a whole new set of challenges. GE Gas Power, together with consortium partners, Samsung C&T and PT Meindo achieved this milestone despite the coronavirus pandemic. The Jawa-1 project adopted strict but flexible protocols and procedures aiming to ensure the safety of all site personnel, while ensuring strict adherence to government guidelines.
