Toshiba to Supply Geoportable for Geothermal Power Plant in Indonesia

Construction Week

Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation announced that the company has won a contract with PT Inti Karya Persada Tehnik a leading Engineering, Procurement and Construction company in Indonesia, to supply a set of steam turbine and generator for Dieng Small Scale Geothermal Power Plant located in Central Java, Indonesia. The power plant is developed by PT Geo Dipa Energi (Persero), Indonesias state-owned geothermal energy company. Toshiba ESS commenced the design and engineering work for the scope of supply. The power plant is scheduled to start commercial operation in March 2021. This 10 MW-class small scale geothermal power plant will be constructed in the Dieng plateau and located near the existing Dieng Geothermal Power Plant Unit 1, which has been operating since 2002. For this new power plant, Toshiba ESS will supply Geoportable.

Geoportable is a compact power generation system developed by Toshiba ESS for small scale geothermal power plants with outputs ranging from 1 MW to 20 MW. This system employs advanced technologies, for instance, leading-edge corrosive gas resistance materials, which are crucial for geothermal steam turbines, and a unique design for the steam path, which leads to high performance and reliability.

In addition, with its compact design, Geoportable can be installed even in limited spaces where conventional geothermal power generation systems normally cannot fit. Geoportable is primarily composed of standardized components and are pre-assembled on skid* in the factory, allowing a shorter manufacturing and installation period. These factors were considered and evaluated positively during the selection process.
