Small CFB boilers for Indonesian State Electricity Company
Doosan Lentjes was selected to deliver key CFB boiler equipment for a new 2 x 50 MWe power plant located in Palu on the Indonesian island Sulawesi. The supply will include both engineering and procurement of the boiler island encompassing the major boiler equipment. The contribution will also cover advisory services for both erection and commissioning. After the completion of the project, Doosan Lentjes will train the staff of the client, the Indonesian State Electricity Company Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN), in the operation of the plant.
Working together with our parent company Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction, who will act as the EP contractor for boiler and turbine, we will deliver an integrated solution from one strong hand. Value engineering has enabled us to tackle the challenges posed by a strong local competitive pressure driven by low-cost projects.
Palu 3 is the first CFB project delivered by Doosan Lentjes in Indonesia and demonstrates that the technology meets the market trend towards smaller plants and can add value to local power generation.
The specific features of CFB combustion allow an optimal exchange between gas and solids, so that efficient heat transfer and fuel-burnout is possible. Thus, even with the coal used in Palu, which has a particularly high moisture content, efficient energy recovery from the fuel can be achieved. Inherently low NOx emissions fulfil new Indonesian regulations without additional DeNOx systems like SNCR or SCR.
