Indonesia choose supplier for first gas engine based power plant

Wärtsilä has been awarded the contract to supply a new, gas-fuelled power plant to Indonesia.

When operational, it will serve the regional electricity grid, and will be the first ever gas-fired combustion engine based peaking power plant in Indonesia. The plant is to be located in Sei Gelam Jambi in Sumatra.

PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PT. PLN), the state-owned utility company, will utilize the new facility primarily to supply power during the evening peak load hours. It will be powered by eleven 20-cylinder Wärtsilä 34SG generator sets in V-configuration, operating on compressed natural gas and providing an output of 110 MW.

Wärtsilä will also supply the necessary auxiliary equipment as well as building materials for plant, which is expected to be operational by 2012.
