Jakarta, Indonesia -- Karadeniz Powership Zeynep Sultan has arrived in Indonesia right on time as the most convenient mobile solution to Archipelago’s power shortage. Zeynep Sultan, Indonesia’s first Powership with an installed capacity of 125 MW will start operating in Amurang, Manado and will be connected to the national grid in the coming month.
Karpowership is contracted for 5 “Marine Vessel Power Plant’s” with a total capacity of 540 MW to generate power in 5 different locations in the RI. Agreement is signed recently between the state utility PT PLN (Persero) and Karpowership Indonesia Company for the first Powership. As per this agreement Powerships will generate 540 MW for 5 years, which will directly supply into respective islands’ electrical grids. This agreement will be a significant contribution to Indonesia’s electricity supply and industry through the islands. The Powership™ project will be an economical solution to Indonesia’s existing power generation while providing valuable foreign direct investment and creating value for the areas it operates.
The Powership is expected to generate high voltage electrical energy at one of the low prices for thermal power generation. The Powerships will initially use the economic and abundant Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) to generate electricity but will have the ability to convert to Natural Gas subject to customer desire. In addition to providing security of supply and baseload contribution to the grid, Powerships aim highest fuel efficiencies as well as providing one of the lowest fuel cost for Indonesia.
This is the largest Foreign Direct Investment “FDI” investment by a Turkish company in Indonesia and also aims to support the two countries' growing economic relations as well as contributing to job creation across the archipelago.
