Power company PT Indonesia Power officially opened on Friday its first diesel and gas-powered plant (PLTDG) in Bali, in an attempt to create a green energy island. The power plant is considered to be environmentally friendly, as it was cleaner and more efficient.
Built by the Wartsila Consortium, the new power plant engine replaced the previous Pesanggaran diesel power station (PLTD) in Denpasar. The new power plant, which has a maximum capacity of 200 megawatts, commenced operations in April this year.
The power plant engine has been designed to use three kinds of fuel including high-speed diesel (HSD), marine-fuel oil (MFO) and gas. In the first phase of operation, the company will use only high-speed diesel.
