New-Build 2 x 1,000 MW Power Plant “Central Java”, Indonesia Implements Boiler Cleaning Equipment from Clyde Bergemann

Faced with a rapid increase of electricity consumption, Indonesia imperatively needs to develop its power generating capacities. As part of the expansion of the portfolio, a new ultra-supercritical (USC) 2 x 1000 MW coal-fired plant is being built in Batang Regency, Central Java. Clyde Bergemann GmbH in Wesel (Germany) was entrusted with the delivery of the boiler cleaning equipment and the accompanying controls technology for both units. After winning the contract for the dry bottom ash handling systems for Tanjung Jati B power plant, this is the second order for Indonesia in a short time.

Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS), supplier of the ultra-supercritical-pressure boilers, once again decided for Clyde Bergemann’s customised cleaning solutions for different areas and deposit situations in the boiler. To remove heavy slagging from the furnace walls with high flue gas temperatures, VS-H wall deslagger sootblowers are deployed in each boiler. Modular long retractable sootblowers RXM-H and PS-HB part retractable sootblowers are additionally used for the cleaning of the respective superheater areas. In total, Clyde Bergemann will be supplying 260 sootblowers for two boilers. The operation of the cleaning devices is planned through Local Contactor Panel two per unit, also to be delivered by Clyde Bergemann along with the sootblowers.

The combination of the various cleaning devices for the different application areas guarantees a safe and efficient removal of all deposits.


 “We are pleased to be partnering once again with MHPS and also to be part of the development of Indonesia’s energy network”, summarises Dr. Christian Mueller, CEO and President of the Clyde Bergemann Power Group.
