Energy firms explore co-firing low carbon fuels in Indonesia


Industrial group Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) and PT. PLN Indonesia Power (PLN) will commence three feasibility studies to explore the potential of co-firing with low carbon fuels in power plants across Indonesia.

Affirmed under a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and conducted jointly by Indonesia Power and MHI with support from its power solutions brand Mitsubishi Power, the studies aim to aid in the advancement of solutions to decarbonise energy systems in Indonesia.

Inked at an Energy Transition Day event organised by PLN Group on 1st Nov, the first study will assess the potential for biomass co-firing at the Suralaya coal-fired power plant (CFPP). The scope of the study will encompass handling, storage, transport of biomass in addition to boiler modification.

Using the Suralaya CFPP as a reference, the second study will investigate co-firing of ammonia produced by existing ammonia plants in the country with the intent to potentially establish a blue ammonia supply chain with production and transportation from the ammonia plant.
