The Arun power plant with a 184 MW operating capacity will be the largest gas engine based peaking power plant in Indonesia. This order further strengthens Wartsila’s global position as one of the leading suppliers of large gas powered power plants of up to 500 MW. Wartsila power plant solutions are based on modern combustion engine technology, which provides superior flexibility and high efficiency at any load. These unique features enable the maximum use of intermittent renewable energy sources, while meeting the increasing demand for peak load.
