Metso will supply two power boilers to T Cikarang Listrindo, located in Babelan outside of Jakarta in Indonesia. The order is valued at around EUR 100 million.
The delivery will also include a Metso DNA control system. Following the investment, the company’s electricity production will increase by approximately 30 per cent. The plant will be commissioned in 2016.
