Wärtsilä in deal for Indonesia multi-fuel plant

Wärtsilä is to supply a 23 MW multi-fuel power plant to an industrial and port project in Indonesia.

The contract has been awarded by Berkah Kawasan Manyar Sejahtera (BKMS), the developer of the Java Integrated Industrial and Port Estate. BKMS is a joint venture between PT AKR Corporindo TBK, Indonesia's leading logistics provider for chemicals and energy, and Pelindo III, the state-owned port operator.

The turnkey order includes three Wärtsilä 34DF multi-fuel engines running primarily on natural gas, with heavy fuel oil as a backup and the plant is expected to be operational in summer 2017.

Wärtsilä said that the Java Integrated Industrial and Port Estate is expected to attract foreign investors due to its strategic location, deep sea port, infrastructure, and reliable energy supply.

A recent governmental decision allows companies such as BKMS to build power plants to supply energy independently to their consumers. As these plants are not connected to the national grid, Wärtsilä said that reliability of supply is extremely important. "The requisite for our customer is to guarantee an uninterrupted 24/7 supply of electricity to the estate tenants, which is the key to attracting new investors to the country," added Wiwin Suhendri, Wärtsilä business development manager.
