In order to augment power requirements from the industrial estate and surroundings, Jababeka embarked on a 130MW Power Plant project in 2007, operated and managed by wholly owned subsidiary PT Bekasi Power. Jababeka has looked in the future and realized power demand will keep growing, which is why enough space for a second 130MW power plant is available.
The Power Plant consists of two state-of-the-art frame 6B gas turbines, manufactured by General Electric Energy with an installed capacity of 40 - 42 MW each by ISO rating. Furthermore, there are two heat recovery steam generators (HRSG) from Thermax Babcock and Wilcox Limited. The combined cycle is completed by a steam turbine from Shin Nippon with a capacity of 46 - 50 MW, which is driven by pressurized high temperature steam from both HRSGs that are fired by using the exhaust gasses from the gas turbines. The total installed capacity amounts to 130MW.
Gas is sourced from state-owned Perusahaan Gas Negara (PGN) and PT Bayu Buana Gemilang (BBG), subsidiary of state-owned PT Pertamina.
With international standard equipment and redundant gas supply, Bekasi Power ensures an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) at a competitive price that would help support Indonesia's national power grid and industrial growth for years to come.
