Tokyo-based Sumitomo Corporation, one of Japan’s largest companies, announced on Monday that it had won a contract to build a 35-megawatt geothermal power plant in West Java for Pertamina Geothermal Energy, a unit of state-owned energy company Pertamina.
The project will be part of Pertamina’s Kamojang geothermal power plant complex, which currently consists of four turbines with a combined capacity of 200 megawatts. The Kamojang plant, located in West Java’s Garut district, has been on line since 1982.
Sumitomo said in a statement that it would conduct the engineering, procurement and construction parts of the projects in a consortium that includes Rekayasa Industry, a state engineering firm. Fuji Electric, another Japanese firm, will be responsible for manufacturing and supplying equipment for the project.
