Overview

Currently the largest single-shaft block combined-cycle plant in the region, the Jawa 1 power plant is kicking off with the installation of the 9HA.02 gas turbine.

The challenge

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 solution

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.

Outcomes

Making Jawa 1 a reality

11 million

equivalent homes powered by Jawa 1 upon completion

hydrogen burning capability for the 9HA.02

1760 MW

of electricity to the grid

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.

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.
