Samsung C&T Corporation has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract to build a 1,760MW combined cycle power plant by PT Jawa Satu Power in Indonesia.
The $1 billion project, located in Cilamaya, will be developed by PT Jawa Satu Power, a consortium of PT Pertamina (Persero), Marubeni Corporation, and Sojitz Corporation. Samsung C&T will form a joint venture agreement with General Electric (GE) Power and PT. Meindo Elang Indah (Meindo), and its portion will be worth more than half of the whole EPC contract price.
