Hyundai Heavy Industries landed a US$48 million order to supply dual fuel power generation facilities for the first time from Indonesia.
The deal will empower Hyundai Heavy Industries to participate in a power generation project led by PT. PLN, an Indonesian electric power corporation. Indonesia is planning to build a large power plant with an annual production capacity of 35,000MW by 2019, and is expected to place additional orders with Hyundai Heavy Industries in the future.
Hyundai Heavy Industries announced on January 17 that the company recently won an 86MW land engine power plant order from PT. PLN in cooperation with Indonesia's Truba Jaya Engineering.
Hyundai Heavy Industries will supply 21 units of 4.1MW dual-fuel Himsen Engine and related equipment for the power plant and installation and construction work will be done by local EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) company Truva Jaya Engineering. Himsen Engine is a medium-sized engine developed by Hyundai Heavy Industries with its own technology. The engine is mainly used for the propulsion of ships and power generation.
Himsen Engine is a dual-fuel engine that can selectively use diesel and natural gas depending on situations. The eco-friendly engine can reduce harmful gas emissions more effectively than ordinary engines. So the engine is evaluated as an optimized solution for the Indonesian power generation market which is building gas infrastructure.
These power generation facilities will be installed in seven power plants all over Indonesia, including Nunukan Power Plant in the Kalimantan area and Waingapu Power Plant in the Nusa Tenggara area from this September to March of next year.
