MAN Diesel & Turbo announced it will deliver and install four MAN 18V32/40 gensets for Indonesian energy company PT Sumberdaya Sewatama. The power plant, with a capacity of 24 MW, will be installed at the Martabe gold mine.
MAN’s four-stroke engines will eliminate an acute energy bottleneck in the region and ensure stable power for the mine, which is roughly double the size of Los Angeles and extracts 4.5 million tons of gold and silver ore annually.
The mine can’t get reliable energy from the state grid due to its remote location.
"Our engines solve energy bottlenecks on location and secure an economically viable, stable power supply for industrial plants also in remote locations, such as here in the Indonesian mountains," said Massimo Casal, Sales Manager of MAN Diesel & Turbo in Indonesia.
MAN has delivered engines totaling 158 MW to Indonesia.
