PT Semen Indonesia announces waste heat project

JFE Engineering Corporation announced that it has started work on a waste heat recovery power generation project for PT Semen Indonesia (Persero) Tbk, the leading state-owned company and the largest cement producer in Indonesia.

JFE Engineering has also been entrusted  for the feasibility study of the Joint Credit Mechanism (JCM) by the Ministry of the Environment of Japan (MOEJ) on this project. The system, mainly consisting of boilers, a steam turbine and a generator, will be designed and manufactured by JFE Engineering and will be installed by the local contractors at Semen Indonesia's Tuban plant in West Java, Indonesia. 

Plant commissioning is scheduled for the end of FY14. The system can generate the  28MW of electric power efficiently utilising the unused waste heat from the cement production process. This is the second installation of the system in Indonesia after PT Semen Padang and the both of them will be supplied by JFE Engineering.
