Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction Co., South Korea's top power equipment maker, has won a 120 billion won (US$100.59 million) order for power generation equipment from Indonesia.
The company announced on Sept. 9 that it has signed an agreement with Indonesia's state utility firm PT PLN to supply boilers and turbines for the Palu 3 thermal power station, which is to be constructed in Shindu on the island of Sulawesi, 2,500 kilometers northeast of Jakarta, with a capacity of 110 megawatts.
The company plans to install a circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boiler, turbine and other equipment which come up to stronger environment regulation standards of the Indonesian government and complete the project by 2023.
A CFB boiler is an environmentally friendly technology that greatly reduces emissions of pollutants such as nitrogen oxide and sulfur oxides by completely burning coals through continuous circulation unlike existing coal-fired boilers. It also boasts of high low-grade coal burning efficiency that would help save costs.
