Tanjung Enim 3 x 10 MW Power Plant Produce 144 Million MW Per Year
Tanjung Enim 3 x 10 MW Tanjung Enim Power Plant (PLTU) owned by PT Bukit Asam (Persero) Tbk, targets to produce 144 million MW for 2017 with a production volume of 12 million MW. This was disclosed by the Steam Power Plant Assistant Manager, Tanjung Enim Power Generation Unit, Edwar B. Halidin Syam. The production volume is generated by two of the three power plants owned by Tanjung Enim power plant.
"We still have no plans to activate one more plant, because until now the needs of electricity consumption expenses for the company's operations can still be met from two power plants only," said Edwar.
However, if PTBA's electrification mining program requires more power supply, Tanjung Enim 3 x 10 MW power plant can activate one power plant so that all three power plants owned by PLTU are fully operational.
The need for coal of Tanjung Enim steam power plant 3 x 10 MW is supplied from Banko Barat mine which is located about 5 kilometers from the location of the steam power plant. With coal of 4,200-6,000 gross air-received (GAR) kcal / kg, the steam power plant uses a Circulating Fluidized Bed (CFB) boiler, which is a stocker boiler (fluidized bed) where coal is burned in a conveyor belt and is given airflow from the side under. In this way the range of coal calorie usage becomes wider because it can accommodate up to 6,000 GAR of coal.
Tanjung Enim power plant is built for the fulfillment of electrical energy in the PTBA mine, for example the Air Laya Mine that uses a lot of electrical energy for its operations, because of the continuous mining mining equipment, BWE, spreader, including its conveyor. Power consumption is very much that makes PTBA conduct feasibility study of the steam power plant since 2007 and began to build in 2009.
In May 2013, Tanjung Enim power plant 3 x 10 MW conducted Commercial Operation Date (COD) and had several times succeeded in selling excess power to PT PLN. The power plant whose operations are managed by PT Bukit Energi Servis Terpadu (BEST) is in the near future will adopt ISO 90001 system this year.
