Rolls-Royce prepares turnkey power station in Indonesia
Rolls-Royce has received a (US)$90 million order for its first turnkey power station in Indonesia. The order, from Perusahaan Umum Listrik Negara, Indonesia`s national electric utility, includes all the electrical, mechanical and civil works for a 60-MW combined-cycle power station at Samarinda in East Kalimantan.
The two RB211 EconoPac gas turbine generating sets are powered by Rolls-Royce Industrial B211s.
The main contractor is Parsons Power Generation Systems, part of Rolls-Royce Power Engineering. The project will be completed in approximately two years. The power station is intended to help develop the infrastructure of a rural region.
Rolls-Royce also reports an order from Southern Company Services Inc. for NOx reduction equipment for the corner-fired boiler plant at Alabama Power Co.`s Plant Gorgas, Unit 9. Rolls-Royce has completed 39 low NOx boiler retrofits in the last two years. Modifications planned at Unit 9 include the fitting of Mark II Flame Attached Nozzle burners to the coal compartments, which are expected to contribute to a planned 62 percent reduction from the current NOx level. Equipment delivery is set for January 1995.
