GE today announced a series of deals that will redefine power generation, efficiency and digital energy in Indonesia, including its record-setting 9HA gas turbine technology to be used in the upcoming Tambak Lorok Combined-Cycle Power Plant Block 3 (Tambak Lorok), operated by PLN wholly-owned subsidiary Indonesia Power, a 15-year multi-year agreement for services for the plant, and cooperation with PLN to secure debt financing for the project.

In addition, PJB, another wholly-owned subsidiary of PLN, will deploy GE’s Predix-based Asset Performance Management (APM), Operations Optimization (OO), Advanced Control Solutions and Baseline Security Center (BSC) software applications across 21 sites with 10.7 GW capacity. GE also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Ministry of Villages, Disadvantaged Region Development and Transmigration of Indonesia (KEMENDES) for strategic collaboration on the development and implementation of power generation technology solutions for rural electrification.

With the help of GE’s 9HA.02 technology, as well as GE’s D650 steam turbine, heat recovery steam generator and balance of plant equipment, Tambak Lorok will be delivered in a turnkey combined-cycle configuration using GE’s extended scope technology. The plant is expected to add 780 MW to the Indonesian grid, providing enough electricity to power the equivalent of more than five million Indonesian homes and is expected to be the most efficient combined-cycle power plant in the country once completed.

GE’s Power Services will also provide a multi-year service agreement including training and maintenance management for 15 years for Tambak Lorok, to enhance operational performance and increase the efficiency and reliability of the plant. The training will support skills development and knowledge transfer to improve the capability of the Tambak Lorok operations team.
