Quick facts: In Mar 1993, the government approved plans to build Paiton I – the country’s first major IPP – but financial close was not achieved until Apr 1995. PT Paiton Energy, the development consortium, was initially composed of Mitsui, Edison Mission Energy, General Electric, and PT Batu Hitam Perkasa. The sponsors provided $680mn while the balance of $1.82bn project cost was financed by Chase Manhattan and the Industrial Bank of Japan, and the U.S. and Japanese EXIM banks. OPIC provided $200mn in investment guarantees. The PT Jawa Power consortium for Paiton II was led by Siemens and England’s PowerGen (now E.ON UK) and included local partner PT Bumipertiwi Tatapradipta, a subsidiary of Bimantara Group. Financing for the $1.65bn plant was arranged in Mar 1996 with debt totaling $1.36bn from export credit agencies Hermes ($500mn), the U.S. EXIM ($400mn), KfW ($250mn), and $200mn from the private placement of senior notes. In May 2004, YTL Power acquired a 35% stake in PT Jawa Power for $139.4mn. Both Paiton I and Paiton II have Alstom saltwater FGD scrubbers.

6. Tanjung Jati-B
Location: Central Java
Operator: PT Central Java Power
Configuration: 2 X 660 MW
Operation: 2006
Fuel: subbituminous coal
Boiler supplier: B&W
T/G supplier: Toshiba
EPC: Sumitomo, Black & Veatch, SNC Lavalin, ESB International, Eskom Enterprises
Quick facts: Tanjung Jati-B was proposed by Hopewell Holdings and initially bid as an IPP in Jun 1994. A PPA with PLN followed in Sep 1994. The EPC contract was signed in Sep 1995 and site work started on 15 Apr 1997. The Asian financial crisis combined with allegations about mismanagement of the PPA terms led to Hopewell withdrawing, leaving the project about one-third complete. Sumitomo renegotiated the development as a leasing scheme and construction resumed in Sep 2003 with financing from JBIC. The 5yr project suspension led to parts and equipment being stored onsite and at 75 locations worldwide. B&W supplied cold-side ESPs and a wet limestone FGD system using seawater makeup. The APC systems exhaust through a 240m stack. Coal is received at a 1,368m jetty equipped with two 1,500 tph unloaders built by PT Decorient Indonesia and Interbeton bv. The plant cost $904mn. Two additional units were agreed in Nov 2008 and are being built for service in 2012. PT Central Jawa Power is a 100% Sumitomo subsidiary.
