Jakarta (ANTARA) – Indonesia’s biggest coal-based thermal power plant of the PLTU Jawa 7 Unit 1 with a total capacity of 2 X 1,000 megawatt (mw) of two stations is now officially operational. This PLTU Jawa 7 Unit 1 located in Terate Village, Serang, Banten Province, is the first coal-based thermal power plant that uses the boiler technology of Ultra Super Critical (USC), the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources spokesperson, Agung Pribadi, confirmed in Jakarta on Monday.

“The USC technology is projected to increase generator efficiency by 15 percent rather than non-USC while lowering the cost of fuel per kilo watt-hour. This simultaneously reduces greenhouse emissions,” Pribadi noted.
