Finnish engine maker Wärtsilä has been contracted to provide engines for PLN’s peaking power plant in Lhokseumawe, Indonesia.
The national utility PLN has appointed a consortium between PT WIKA and TSK Electronica Y Electricidad S.A. to deliver the power plant.
The power plant will be powered by 13 Wärtsilä 50SG engines, operating on natural gas and providing an output of approximately 240 MW, Wärtsilä said in a statement.
Wärtsilä will deliver gensets and performance related equipment to TSK.
The order was booked for the second quarter of 2017, while the first deliveries are expected in 2018 and the power plant is expected to be fully operational in the first half of 2019, according to the statement.
The Sumbagut-2 Peaker Power Plant will be located next to the existing LNG-powered PLTMG Arun power plant that was delivered by Wärtsilä and PT WIKA in 2015.
