Wartsila in first bio-LNG plant Indonesia
Wärtsilä and two Indonesian partners on Wednesday signed a joint development agreement with the intention of creating the first ever bio-LNG plant in Indonesia.
The co-signers of the agreement with Wärtsilä are PT Pertamina and PT Godang Tua Jaya (GTJ), a waste utilization sector specialist company.
Wärtsilä Oil & Gas Systems will conduct a feasibility study for the project to develop a mini bio-LNG plant with a capacity of 0,75 tons/hour, which corresponds to approximately 4 MWh in electrical production, the company said.
The plant will process municipal solid waste into eco-friendly biogas for use as a renewable energy source for typical vehicle fuel. In addition to the feasibility study, Wärtsilä Oil & Gas Systems will provide technological support and an economic assessment. This study represents a Front End Engineering Design (FEED) equivalent. If the project is deemed to be feasible then the parties are expected to enter into an Execution Agreement.
