Flexible power plant solutions provider, Wartsila has secured a contract for the supply of a new gas-fuelled power plant to Indonesia.


The plant will be powered by eleven 20-cylinder Wartsila 34SG generator sets in V-configuration, operating on compressed natural gas and providing an output of 110MW.

State-owned utility company, Perusahaan Listrik Negara, will use the new facility primarily to supply power during the evening peak load hours.

Wartsila will also supply the necessary auxiliary equipment as well as building materials.

The plant is scheduled to be built and fully operational before the end of 2012.

Upon operational, the plant will serve the regional electricity grid, and will be the first ever gas-fired combustion engine based peaking power plant in Indonesia
