PT Gorontalo Listrik Perdana (GLP) has awarded Pöyry with an owner’s engineer services assignment in Gorontalo Province, Indonesia.

The assignment is for Sulbagut-1, a 100 MW coal-fired steam power plant project consisting of two 50 MW units to be constructed at a greenfield site in Northern Sulawesi.

Pöyry‘s assignment includes support in project management, design review, site supervision services, quality assurance and quality control as well as commissioning services.

The value of the order is not disclosed. The estimated overall schedule for Pöyry’s participation is approximately three years.

“We are very pleased to assist PT GLP in this important project and continue our strong involvement in expanding power generation capacity in Indonesia,” says Petteri Härkki, regional director of Pöyry. “The Sulbagut-1 project will be very important to improve electricity supply in the Northern Sulawesi region, where some 20 per cent of the population still has no access to electricity.”

Earlier this week, Pöyry announced it has been awarded the assignment for the modernisation and reconstruction of an existing 110kV switchgear at Ernsthofen substation by Austrian Power Grid. The project will be completed by the end of 2022.
