GE has signed agreements and received orders for numerous projects throughout Southeast Asia.

GE has signed two memoranda of understanding (MOU) with Clean Power Indonesia (CPI) and Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) for the development and deployment of its integrated biomass gasification power system in Indonesia. The company said there is also potential to further diversify Indonesia’s fuel mix by creating power from sustainable, local bamboo and wood sources.

GE has also signed two gas engine supply and service agreements with distributed power project developer Navigat Energy Pte Ltd. to provide 100 new Jenbacher gas engines – generating a total of 330 MW – at a number of independent power production sites in Indonesia and Thailand.

A separate 10-year material stream agreement has been signed, under which Navigat will provide preventive maintenance on GE’s installed fleet of 100 J620 Jenbacher gas engines that are driving on-site power projects in Singapore, Indonesia and Thailand.

GE will also provide four Waukesha 12V275GL+ gas engines and two VGF48GL units to help upgrade Pertamina’s Lembak gas compression station facility near Palembang City, South Sumatra, Indonesia. This project will increase the gas transmission pressure to the customer’s liquid stripping plant and fertilizing plant, GE said.

An agreement now exists between GE and Malaysian company Green & Smart Sdn Bhd (GNS), which entails providing a proven solution for waste-to-power using GNS’ patented technology in anaerobic digestors and GE’s Jenbacher gas engine technology to produce power and supply to the Malaysian electricity grid.
