Outer Island Project – Engines ready to roll

Rolls-Royce have completed preparations for the shipment of engines destined for an Indonesian power project. In a £22m contract from state utility PLN, Rolls-Royce will supply five 5MW Allen 3000 distillate engines to extend power stations on Indonesian Islands.

Under the scheme, called the Outer Islands Project, engines will be installed on the islands of Bintan, Bangka, Karimun, Sumbawa and Ternate.

The Allen engines, built in Bedford, UK, will supplement existing plant at each site housed in new building extensions supplied by Rolls-Royce in conjunction with its consortium partner P.T Silkar National.
