EXPANSION UNIT 4

 

Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, Jero Wacik, today on Monday (6/2) inaugurated the operation of Steam Power Plant (PLTU) Tanjung Jati B Expansion Unit 4 in Tubanan Village, Kembang Sub-District, Jepara District, Central Java Province. The event was attended by Central Java Governor, the representative of Japan Embassy for Indonesia, President Director and also directors of PT PLN (Persero), Jepara Regent and Regional Consultative Councils (Muspida) Jepara District and Islamic scholars and also Tubanan informal leaders.

PLTU Tanjung Jati B Expansion Unit 3 and 4 in each capacity of 660 MW was built by using Build, Lease, and Transfer (BLT) scheme between PT PLN (Persero) with PT Central Java Power (Sumitomo Corporation).

Based on contract schedule, PLTU Tanjung Jati B Expansion Unit 3 is planned to operate commercially in January 2012, however the realization of the operation could be done in October 2011 (3 months earlier) and has been inaugurated by President RI on December 28th, 2011. Besides, unit 4 was planned to operate commercially in April 2012 and the realization was in January 2012 (3 months earlier).

In his speech, Minister of EMR appreciated to all Jepara citizens’ elements participate succeeding the construction of PLTU Tanjung Jati B Expansion Unit 3 and 4, so it could finish 3 months earlier than the plan. The earlier finishing of the PLTU has given total potential of fuel cost saving for ± Rp 3, 6 Trillion. The additional capacity of 660 MW in Java-Bali system from PLTU Tanjung Jati B Expansion Unit 4 inaugurated today, so the installed capacity in Java-Bali system is 28.201 MW.

Electricity has a very important role in our daily life and has a very important role as the stimulus of economic growth both regionally and nationally. This becomes a challenge for electricity sectors to always increase the supply to fulfill the continuous demand along with the effort to increase people’s wealth. This is along with the tag line of Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources; “Energy and Mineral Resources for People’s Wealth”. 

The government hopes the achievement could become a good example for other power plant projects spreading all over Indonesia because besides giving additional capacity, non-BBM fuel power plants would give significant saving for the whole fuel cost component.

 

The Head of Legal and Public Relations Bureau,
