Valmet to supply its DNA automation system through EPC Hyundai Engineering to coal-fired steam power plant in Indonesia
1 May 2018
Valmet has been selected to deliver its Valmet DNA automation system to the Kalselteng-2 coal-fired power plant project of the Indonesian state electricity company PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) in the South Kalimantan Province of Kalimantan Island. This deal is the first ever with Hyundai Engineering Co. Ltd (HEC), an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company that has won the delivery contract for the PLN delivery to extend the existing 65 MW x 4-unit, coal-fired power plant by an additional two units, each with a capacity of 100 MW. Valmet's delivery scope includes automation for the two boiler units, Balance of Plant and turbine Balance of Plant.
The order was awarded to Valmet on January 10, 2018. Construction of the project has commenced and is expected to be completed in 2020. The orders are included in Valmet's first quarter 2018 orders received.
Although this is the first project with HEC, Valmet has had a long relationship with HEC and HDEC, its sister company within the Hyundai Group. The two together form one of the largest EPC companies in Korea as well as globally. HEC has been pleased with cooperation with Valmet in several other sales projects. For this project in particular,HEC made an inspection visit to Valmet's Cikarang workshop in Indonesia to see the ready factory acceptance test (FAT) facilities that will be used for the PLN project.
An accepted supplier for future projects
"When evaluating suppliers, HEC first aligns all the suppliers to ensure that they quote the system according to the given requirements and specifications. After the technical evaluation, price is ranked in the final selection," says Matti Miinalainen, Director, Automation, Asia Pacific & China, Valmet. "In addition, Valmet had gained the trust of HEC through earlier cooperation and was able to demonstrate via visits to our premises in Jakarta and Cikarang that we had the capabilities to deliver what we promise."
"We will provide the Valmet DNA engineering and commissioning with proven project execution and quality control procedures to help in the successful outcome of the customer's project," Wan Mo Yoon, Sales Manager, Automation, Valmet.
This project is an important win for Valmet's automation business because it makes Valmet now an accepted supplier for PT PLN's potential future projects in Indonesia and strengthens the long-term cooperation with HEC.
