Sumitomo Corporation has been contracted to provide EPC services for the 35MW fifth unit of the Kamojang geothermal power station from PT. Pertamina Geothermal Energy (PGE), the geothermal arm of the Indonesian state-run oil and gas company PT. Pertamina.
The Indonesian government is planning to increase geothermal power generation by about 4,000MW through new projects under the Crash Program II launched in 2010. The Kamojang Unit 5 project, which is operated by PGE, is one such project. Sumitomo Corporation will execute the contract in a consortium with PT. Rekayasa Industri. The construction site is located in Garut, approx. 40 km from Bandung City, West Java, Indonesia. Fuji Electric will manufacture and deliver the major equipment for the project, namely the steam turbine and generator, while Rekayasa will carry out the civil work and installation of the plant and the steam collection system. Construction is expected to take 23 months and is scheduled to be completed in July 2015.
