The third phase of the 1×1,000MW ultra-supercritical coal-fired generator unit in Cilacap, Indonesia connected to the grid on Sept 12. The generator unit performed well with all systems working stably.
Primarily contracted by China National Chemical Engineering Co, Ltd., the project includes construction of China's first overseas million-level generating unit.
Its operation marked the start of the project's contribution to quality of life in the affected areas.
The project is a major economic and trade cooperation between China and Indonesia and a main livelihood and economic program. It was made possible by the Belt and Road Initiative.
The generation unit has the highest steam parameter, the largest individual generating capacity, the lowest coal consumption per unit and the fewest pollution emissions among China's overseas generating units.
The EPC contract went into effect on Oct 12, 2016 and the contract schedule was 36 months.
As a major supporting unit of the Belt and Road Initiative, China Development Bank offered the project high-efficiency funding.
During construction, China Chengda Engineering Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of China National Chemical Engineering Co, Ltd., provided strong and reliable support in quality, security and work scheduling.
The company also adhered to the principle of "extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits" during the construction, creating many jobs for local residents and offering training to Indonesian staff members.
The operation of the generating unit will relieve power shortages in the country's Java Island, improve its power equipment levels and promote local technical progress as well as people's quality of life.
