Bespoke installation at height
The expansion of Tanjung Jati B power station in Indonesia is a $4.4bn project and will add two high efficiency ultra-supercritical coal-fired units, each with 1,000MW capacity. They will increase the existing power plant’s capacity by 75%, contributing to the Indonesian government’s plan to increase the country’s power generation capacity by 35,000MW.
ALE was contracted for the installation of a 462t generator at one of the new units. This was the heaviest steam turbine generator to ever be installed in Indonesia. The building’s design meant ALE needed to design a bespoke solution for the installation of the generator. It needed to be carefully lifted 16m high, manoeuvred and then precisely installed. ALE’s wide experience of power generation installations enabled them to specially-tailor the optimal method for the movement of the generator, ensuring the safest and most efficient installation possible.
