Paiton Solid-Fueled Power Plant - Procurement & Commissioning

Fluor, as a member of an international engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) consortium, provided environmental oversight, procurement, construction, commissioning, testing, and training on a 1,230-megawatt pulverized coal-fired power plant in Paiton, East Java, Indonesia.

Client's Challenge

The P. T. Paiton Energy Company was comprised of Edison Mission Energy, Mitsui, General Electric, and Batu Hitam Perkasa. Fluor's power experience and worldwide resources were decisive factors in the selection of the consortium by P.T. Paiton, one of the world's largest independent power producers.

The project required equipment and materials shipped to Indonesia from suppliers all over the world.

Major contractors on the project were located in the United States, Indonesia, Japan, and Korea.

Fluor's Solution

In addition to providing engineering, construction management, and commissioning services, Fluor was responsible for overall project planning and schedule control, and training of operators.

Fluor coordinated the activities and deliverables of major contractors in the United States, Indonesia, Japan, and Korea. The company was responsible for the power-block portion of the project. The power block included procurement of two 615-megawatt steam turbine generators, two five-million lb/hr, 1,005 °F / 2,620 psig boilers, and associated mechanical, instrumentation, and electrical systems, as well as precipitator and FGD systems, chimney, and distributed control for the overall project.


Fluor delivered to P.T. Paiton Energy Company a power plant that met or exceeded U.S. environmental requirements using a precipitator and seawater scrubber for emission control.

Unit 7 achieved commercial operation in May 1999 and Unit 8 went commercial two months later.
