MHI and Indonesia Power investigate co-firing plants with hydrogen and ammonia in Indonesia

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and PT. PLN Indonesia Power have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to start three feasibility studies on co-firing less carbon intensive fuels at power plants owned and operated by Indonesia Power.

The three studies will be conducted jointly by Indonesia Power and MHI with support from its power solutions brand, Mitsubishi Power, and will aid in the advancement of solutions to accelerate the decarbonisation of energy systems in Indonesia.

One will use Suralaya CFPP as the reference plant and investigate co-firing of ammonia produced by existing ammonia plants in Indonesia. A particular area of focus will be the potential to establish a blue ammonia supply chain with production and transportation from the ammonia plant and ammonia co-firing technology to apply in existing boiler.Another will evaluate technical and economic feasibility of hydrogen co-firing in an M701F gas turbine at the Tanjung Priok gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) facility. MHI completed construction of the plant’s Unit 2 GTCC system in 2019 as part of PLN’s plans to build an 880 MW plant under the Jawa-2 Project.

A third study will examine the technical and economic feasibility of co-firing up to 100% biomass at the Suralaya coal-fired power plant (CFPP).
