MTU to supply CHP modules to Indonesia

MTU Onsite Energy is to supply eight gas-powered CHP modules to Tognum subsidiary MTU Asia in Singapore.

The CHP modules are powered by 20V 4000 L62 gas engines, each with a maximum electrical power output of approximately 2 MW

The end customer is the Indonesian textile manufacturer PT Spinmill Indah Industry based in Tangerang near Jakarta. The company is looking for a sustainable solution but also independence from the power grid, which is prone to unexpected outages.

The core elements of the CHP modules, which were built at Tognum’s Augsburg site in Germany, are MTU 20V 4000 L62 engines with generators, cooling systems and plant control.

They will be installed in the CHP station serving PT Spinmill Indah Industry’s cotton spinning mill, where they are to operate continuously to provide power for all production processes and electrical loads.

The waste heat generated is converted by an absorption chiller plant to provide cooling power for the air-conditioning system - a combination that makes possible around 90% energy efficiency, according to MTU.
