Coal rules the present, but diversification is the future



Indonesia’s economy is growing, but many of its 13 000 islands are in need of a more stable power supply. Distributed energy is seen as the key. For example MAN D&T is to supply of 20 of its 51/60DF gas/diesel gensets to be deployed in several of the country’s inhabited islands. And Wartsila is to provide the generating equipment for a new 48 MW power plant to be built at Kupang. It will operate with five 34DF dual-fuel engines (photo) initially running on diesel fuel, but switching to gas when the local gas supply infrastructure is sufficiently developed.
