Trans Pacific Petrochemical Indotama (TPPI) has awarded GE Energy a contract of more than US$21.5 million to supply three gas turbines and additional equipment for a petrochemical project in Tuban, East Java, Indonesia. The three MS5001 gas turbines will be installed at a new power plant designed to provide electricity for an aromatic plant at the TPPI petrochemical complex currently under construction in Tuban. Each of the new units will produce approximately 22 MW of power. Gas from the aromatic plant will be the primary fuel and diesel fuel oil will be a used as a backup.
The contract also includes spare parts; three 15 KV, 50-hertz synchronous generators; air filter houses; inlet and exhaust ducts; air coolers; gas turbine enclosures rated 85 dBA; three control cabinets; a power management system for load sharing and shedding; fuel gas filtering skid; and a direct current system with batteries. The gas turbine equipment will be manufactured primarily at GE Energy's facilities in Florence, Italy. The three gas turbines are scheduled for shipment in September, October and November of this year with a plant commercial operation date of summer 2005.
