Wärtsilä Gas Power for Indonesia
Wärtsilä Corporation recently announced it will deliver a total of eight gas-fuelled generating sets with a combined output of 48 MWe to Batam and South Sumatra. Two Wärtsilä 18V34SG sets were contracted by the Indonesian independent power producer PT Elnusa Prima Elektrika in June 2005. The generating sets will be installed at the Prabumulih Gas Engine Power Plant near Palembang in South Sumatra, Indonesia. The sets are due to be fully operational by mid year 2006. They will supply electricity to PLN.
Another three Wärtsilä generating sets, contracted in March 2005, are being supplied to industrial park management company PT Batamindo Investment Cakrawala. The project incorporates the installation of Wärtsilä 18V32DF engines, each of 6012 kW electrical output, at Mukakuning, also on Batam. The first set is due for commissioning by end 2005 and the other two sets by early 2006. The plant will deliver electrical power to the Batamindo Industrial Park. The Wärtsilä 18V32DF dual-fuel engines will primarily burn natural gas with just 1% liquid fuel for ignition.
A further three Wärtsilä 18V34SG generating sets, each of 6000 kW electrical output, are being supplied to the independent power producer (IPP) PT Indo Matra Power. They are being installed in the industrial park at Kabil on the south-east side of Batam. The order was received in February. The three sets are due for commissioning by the end of 2005. The plant will deliver electrical power to the Kabil industrial park and to the state-owned electricity company PT PLN Batam.
