- Sibolga & Amurang IPP Projects
These two projects were developed by an Indonesian IPP group. Both projects burn ocean-delivered low-sulfur Indonesian coal in a circulating fluid bed (CFB) boiler with limestone injection.
Each project sells its full capacity and energy to the Indonesian utility PLN under a power purchase agreement executed in 2006.

Burns & McDonnell led the client team in negotiating an EPC contract with a Chinese EPC contractor with all major equipment manufactured in China. The services included review of the Chinese QA/QC system and proposed technology for the project major equipment, detailed design and construction.
In 1993-1994, Burns & McDonnell prepared an independent engineering report of the technical and economic feasibility of the two power stations. The project construction was implemented in the mid-1990s, but halted after the currency crisis of 1997. The completed construction included a portion of the site and foundation work.
The project was reinitiated in 2005 by a different IPP, and Burns & McDonnell was selected as the project owner’s engineer.
