MAN starts up three dual-fuel power plants in Indonesia

MAN Energy Solutions said it has commissioned three dual-fuel power plants in Indonesia, all capable of operating on LNG. 

Two plants, each with three dual-fuel 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 DF engines with a total capacity of 40 MW, MAN said in its statement.

“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,” said Götz Kassing, managing director Indonesia at MAN Energy Solutions.

Through its global after-sales brand, MAN PrimeServ, MAN Energy Solutions will also take charge of maintaining and operating the power plants for five years.

When constructing the power plants, MAN Energy Solutions worked in close collaboration with the Indonesian company Wijaya Karya (WIKA) and shared EPC responsibility as part of an open consortium.

While WIKA took on the assembly of the power plants, MAN Energy Solutions was responsible for the delivery, assembly monitoring and commissioning of the engines, for mechanical and electrical accessories and the design of the power house, MAN said.

The company said it is currently equipping another six island power plants with a total capacity of 125 MW.

Two power plants in Tanjung Selor and Biak are each powered by two DF engines each with 15 MW of electrical power.

MAN Energy Solutions also supplied two 12V51/60DF engines each with 20 MW of electrical power for three power plants in Merauke, Langgur and Seram.

The sixth power plant was recently successfully commissioned on the island of Nias off the west coast of Sumatra and features five DF engines with a total capacity of 35 MW.
