Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems has completed the construction of the Tanjung Priok combined cycle natural gas-fired generation facility on the Indonesian island of Java, and the plant has commenced operation. The 880 MW facility is composed of two units, with the first (300 MW) going into operation in July and the second in August. The plant was completed ahead of schedule, and features M701F gas turbines, as well as two exhaust heat recovery boilers, one steam turbine and auxiliary equipment from Mitsubishi Hitachi, and generators from Mitsubishi Electric Corp. The plant is currently operating in simple mode, and will switch to combined cycle operation next year.
