Perusahaan Listrik Negara Selects Black & Veatch to Enhance 2GW Electricity Development in Indonesia
Aug 19 15
Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) has selected Black & Veatch to enhance development of 2GW of electricity that will bring power to remote locations in Indonesia. A new 2GW (gigawatt) program will develop small- and medium-output power plants, some of which will also be mobile, bringing electric power to people currently without access to the grid. The program forms part of the Government's plan to fast-track 35GW of electric power development by 2019. By 'clustering' these similar projects together, PLN is accelerating the delivery of about 50 plants across different locations. The plants will vary in size, configuration and operation, although common design opportunities will be explored and maximized such as technology type, size range and portability. The program is working through what is called the 'conceptual design' stage, and Black & Veatch has been appointed by PLN to provide engineering services to accelerate the program. Ranging from approximately 5 MW (megawatt) to 100 MW, smaller plants will start generating much needed power for the public from mid-2016. Remaining larger plants are set to commence operations by 2018. Bringing power to remote locations presents many challenges. The plants will be fueled by a combination of diesel and LNG (liquefied natural gas) because both fuel sources are more easily transportable by sea or road compared to other traditional fuel sources. Therefore, the plants will have dual-fuel combustion turbines and dual-fuel fired gas engines. A number of the plants will also be mounted on barges and on trucks to allow relocation and flexibility of electricity supply.
