Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for gas and steam turbine operation and maintenance services with two Indonesian power producering companies, PT. Pembangkitan Jawa Bali (PJB) and PT. Indonesia Power (Indonesia Power), and with Mitsubishi Cooperation (MC).
Under the terms of the four-party MoU, signed at Indonesia Power's head office in Jakarta, MHPS will collaborate with the companies to offer operation and maintenance (O&M) services for gas and steam turbines.
The MoU also marks further development of the MOUs signed individually by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries with PJB-Service and Indonesia Power in 2008.
In addition to expanding the scope of services, the current MoU has been converted to a joint MoU by including Mitsubishi Corporation as a signatory.
The four firms will collaborate on various activities related to gas and steam turbines such as technical training, technology seminar, joint research program and field service, as part of the MoU.
Additionally, the four signatory companies are seeking to establish a joint venture for field service in future.
PJB and Indonesia Power, which became independent in 1995 from Indonesia's state-owned power company PT. PLN (Persero), supplies electricity in Java and Bali areas.
MHPS aims to maintain and boost its relationship with PJB and Indonesia Power while further contributing to stable and effective power generation in Indonesia in future.
