Wartsila and PT PP (Persero) Tbk, an Indonesian construction company, have been selected to supply a 135-MW combined-cycle power plant to a power center under construction at Lombok Island in Indonesia.
The two companies will also operate and maintain the power plant for five years, with power supplied to PT PLN, the Indonesian state utility.
The order includes 13 Wartsila 34DF engines that can operate on natural gas and liquid fuels. It will be the first combined-cycle power plant in the country.
Wartsila and PT PLN plan to build out additional power generation in Indonesia in the future. When the Lombok plant is operational, Wartsila’s total contributed capacity in the country will exceed 3.1 GW.
