Qatar’s Nebras Power has signed an agreement with Indonesian utility PT PLN (Persero) to study the feasibility of building a power plant, reported Arabian Business.
The announcement was made in a company press release while Indonesian President Joko Widodo was touring the Gulf region, visiting Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Qatar.
The natural gas-fired plant is to produce 500MW and should be ready by 2019, providing for a substantial chunk of North Sumatra electricity needs.
Construction Week Online added that, as part of the agreement, the companies will also study the feasibility for constructing a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU).
This is for liquefying natural gas to supply to the plant.
Nebras Power is an infrastructure investment firm which is owned collectively by Qatar Electricity and Water Company, Qatar Petroleum and Qatar Holding.
