The island of Bali in Indonesia is set to gain increased energy security after PT Indonesia Power awarded Wartsila the contract to supply the Pesanggaran Bali power plant.

With 200 MW nominal output it will be the largest engine based power plant in Indonesia.

  The order was received in the fourth quarter of 2013 and the plant is scheduled to be partially operational by the end of December 2014, and at full output by the end of May 2015. The electricity produced will be fed to Bali’s sub system grid.

  The Pesanggaran power plant will utilise Wartsila’s modern combustion engine technology, and will be powered by twelve Wartsila 50DF dual-fuel engines running primarily on natural gas. The engines can also use conventional heavy fuel oil should there be an interruption to the gas supply.
