Third Order Is A Charm
Wärtsilä receives another Indonesia order, will supply much needed power to Bali
Wärtsilä has been awarded the turnkey contract to supply Indonesia's largest ever engine-based power plant. The order, received in the fourth quarter of 2013, has been placed by PT Indonesia Power, a subsidiary of the state utility PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN).
The 200 MW power plant will be constructed by a consortium with Wärtsilä as the lead partner together with PT Pembangunan Perumahan (Persero) Tbk (PT PP), one of Indonesia's largest construction contractors.
The Pesanggaran power plant will be powered by twelve Wärtsilä 50DF dual-fuel engines running primarily on natural gas. The engines can also use conventional heavy fuel oil (HFO) should there be an interruption to the gas supply, the company said.
The power plant is scheduled to be partially operational by the end of December 2014 and at full output by the end of May 2015. The electricity produced will be fed to the island of Bali's sub system grid. This is the third contract Wärtsilä Power Plants received from Indonesia in 2013.
