Cirebon Coal Thermal IPP Project

In October 2015, Chubu Electric Power Company (“Chubu”) began its participation in a high efficiency coal thermal IPP project located in Indonesia of the equity stake of the project’s operating company, PT Cirebon Energi Prasarana and concluded a contract with the investors.
This project, located in the city of Cirebon, 250km to the east of Jakarta, consists of construction, operation, maintenance of a coal thermal power plant (with a output of approx. 1,000MW), and sales of the electricity generated, offering a steady source of income over 25 year period. Indonesian coal is used to fuel the plant employing highly efficient, ultra-supercritical (USC) power generation1.
In addition, by sending several engineers to the power plant, we have been able to contribute to the mitigation of the environmental burden as well as respond to the increasing demand for electric power in Indonesia through the use of our highly efficient power generation and reliable coal thermal power generation technology and knowledge.
JERA succeeded to this project from Chubu in July 2016.

1Ultra-supercritical (USC) thermal power generation: The latest coal thermal power generation method employing higher pressure and temperature steam than traditional methods to rotate the power generating turbines enabling highly efficient power generation and reducing the volume of fuel required and CO2 emissions.
