PT PLN Batam, a subsidiary of state-owned electricity provider, PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PT PLN), has selected GE’s proven aeroderivative gas turbine technology for a 500 MW fast power project. The 20 TM2500 gas turbines with engine cores manufactured in Cincinnati, Ohio, will meet Indonesia’s need for quick installation, efficiency, reliability and flexibility. The units are truck-mounted, run on dual-fuel and fully re-deployable. GE is currently installing four similar units in Gorontalo, North Sulawesi. These units will quickly provide 100 MW of power generation capacity, the equivalent power needed to supply approximately 800,000 Indonesian homes.
