Powerphase signed a memorandum of understanding with PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara, the state power company of Indonesia, on a phased implementation of the Turbophase Dry Air Injection system. The deployment will begin with a feasibility study at two 50 MW projects, followed by full implementation of 2 GW of additional power at existing PLN assets over the next two years.
Indonesia is currently experiencing rapid GDP growth, which has caused power demand to grow. Powerphase said the deployment of its Turbophase system will help Indonesia achieve more output and efficiency from its existing power plants.
Technology from numerous other US-based companies will be part of the deployment, including engines from Caterpillar, control systems from General Electric, instrumentation from Emerson and valves from Bray.
The Indonesian implementation is valued at $80 million for the study phase and $1.6 billion for the full-scale rollout.
