Wärtsilä to provide 128MW of dual-fuel generating sets that will run on B30

October 21, 2020 |

In Indonesia, Wärtsilä has received contracts for a 128 MW power plant in Indonesia. The plant has been ordered by PT Freeport Indonesia, one of the world’s leading mining companies. The extended engineered equipment delivery order comprises fourteen Wärtsilä 34DF dual-fuel generating sets. The order for eight generating sets was placed in June 2020, and a further six generating sets were ordered in September. A consortium consisting of Wärtsilä and PT PP will install, construct and commission the power plant.

The Wärtsilä 34DF engines can operate on a variety of fuels. This flexibility will allow the plant to switch to operating on natural gas when it becomes locally available. Initially the engines will run on Indonesian B30 biodiesel. The fast-starting flexibility of the engines will also enable the integration of energy from renewable sources, such as solar and wind, in the future.
