Mar 8th, 2012

Helsinki, March 8, 2012 — Wartsila, a supplier of power plant solutions, won a contract to supply a new, gas-fuelled power plant to Indonesia.

When operational, it will serve the regional electricity grid as a gas-fired combustion engine based peaking power plant. The plant is to be located in Sei Gelam Jambi in Sumatra.

PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara, Indonesia's state-owned utility company, will use the new facility primarily to supply power during the evening peak load hours. It will be powered by eleven 20-cylinder Wartsila 34SG generator sets in V-configuration, operating on compressed natural gas and providing an output of 110 MW.

Wartsila will also supply the necessary auxiliary equipment as well as building materials. Everything is being delivered on a fast-track basis, as the plant is scheduled to be built and fully operational before the end of 2012.

Wartsila already has about 2.8 GW of installed power in operation in Indonesia. The company also has service agreements for over 350 MW of power generating capacity in Indonesia.
