GE has supplied a Jenbacher J624 two-stage turbocharged engine to the P.T. Tunas Industrial Estate in Batam Island’s free trade zone.
The region suffers from periodic regional power shortages and GE says that the hot, humid conditions found in equatorial zones make it difficult for combustion equipment to reach optimum levels of output and efficiency.
The Jenbacher J624 engine will provide the Tunas Industrial estate with 4.4 MW of electrical output at 45.5% efficiency.
P.T. Tunas Energi, an engineering and procurement contractor and division of the operator of the Tunas Industrial Estate, is installing the engine, which will enter service this month and run on natural gas.
It complements two J420 and two J620 of GE’s gas engines that are already helping meet the power needs of the industrial estate.
GE also is supplying ancillary equipment and services, including system design.
GE’s official distributor Navigat Energy will provide operation and maintenance services and is the owner of the equipment.
