Nov. 16, 2006
Tokyo, November 16, 2006 — Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. announced today that Kawasaki Gas Turbine Asia Sdn. Bhd., Kawasaki’s Kuala Lumpur-based gas turbine sales and service subsidiary for southeastern/western Asia, and the Indonesian engineering firm, PT Euroasiatic have jointly received an order for two 6,000 kW gas turbine cogeneration systems from the Tangerang Plant of PT Pelita Cengkareng Paper (Pelita), a paper company located in suburban Jakarta, Indonesia.
The cogeneration system consists of two natural gas-fueled gas turbine power generation systems employing Kawasaki’s proprietary 7,000 kW class M7A-02 gas turbine and two waste heat recovery boilers. Operating at full capacity, the systems will significantly cut energy costs by supplying 12,000 kW of power and 30 tons/hour of steam to Pelita’s production facilities. Kawasaki will supply the gas turbine power generation systems while PT Euroasiatic will be responsible for procurement of the boilers and auxiliary equipment as well as installation work. The cogeneration systems are scheduled to be completed in August 2007.
Kawasaki first delivered a 3,000 kW class cogeneration system to Indonesia in 1994 and orders have been rolling in since 2004. Orders this year have included a 6,570 kW for the Indonesian subsidiary of Bridgestone Corporation and a 5,500 kW class gas turbine cogeneration system for the Indonesian subsidiary of Kurabo Industries Ltd. This latest order is the sixth from Indonesia. Kawasaki has developed a proven track record after delivering 18 Kawasaki gas turbines to Indonesia for use in cogeneration systems and emergency power generation systems.
