Global engineering company Black & Veatch has been awarded a consultancy role at the Cirebon 2 coal-fired power project in West Java, Indonesia.
The company, which has over 40 years of experience in the Indonesian power sector, has been appointed owners engineer by PT Cirebon Energi Prasarana to help deliver the coal power plant on time.
In this role, Black & Veatch will oversee the scheduling, design, quality control of supplied equipment and construction activity for the project, which will extend capacity at the current Cirebon power plant through the addition of a 1000 MW ultra-supercritical unit.
“We are playing a critical role in helping the owner prepare the project for construction and are focusing on overseeing the contractors’ performance, as well as the quality of equipment supplies,” said Tariq Aziz, Director South Asia, Power Generation Services, at Black & Veatch.
“Our role includes review of the engineering design documents, carrying out shop inspections in person and monitoring the delivery of key components throughout the supply chain.”
The Cirebon project will provide baseload generation for Indonesia’s power gird and forms part of the Indonesian government’s plan to expand the country’s generation capacity by 35 GW over the next few years.
