MAN Energy Solutions has successfully commissioned three dual-fuel power plants in the east of Indonesia.
Two plants, each with three 18V51/60DF engines, provide the cities of Bima and Sumbawa with 50 MW of electric power each for the grid of the province of West Nusa Tenggara. The third power plant in Maumere on the island of Flores is powered by four 12V51/60DF engines with a total capacity of 40 MW.
“Reliably supplying over 1000 inhabited islands is a huge challenge,” states Götz Kassing, Managing Director Indonesia at MAN Energy Solutions. “We are very pleased that we were able to support the Indonesian government with this project. Our decentralised power plant solutions for reliably supplying energy to islands and remote regions have proven themselves many times. The dual-fuel engines used offer complete fuel flexibility, thereby ensuring the sustainability of the power plants, which can be operated with low-emission LNG at any time.”
