JENBACH, Austria--(BUSINESS WIRE)--To better serve the growing power and grid reliability needs in Indonesia, INNIO Jenbacher and Clarke Energy today announced that they have recently signed an agreement to extend Clarke Energy’s distribution territory of Jenbacher gas engines to Indonesia with focus on Independent Power Producers (IPP) and Merchant Power Producers (MPP). Clarke Energy offerings will focus primarily on natural gas applications for IPPs and MPPs in Indonesia. Additionally, in 2022, Clarke Energy can also offer Jenbacher natural gas engines with a “Ready for H2” option that allows the engines the capability to be readily converted from natural gas to up to 100% hydrogen operation. With this agreement, Clarke Energy is now the distributor of INNIO’s Jenbacher gas engines in 28 countries worldwide.
“Power generation in Indonesia is critical to its growing economy and heavily depending on coal and oil-based fuels. As Indonesia moves to increase the share of renewable energy, providing Jenbacher natural gas-powered engines will help support decarbonization and grid reliability with fast starting and highly efficient assets,” commented Carsten Dommermuth, Vice President and General Manager APAC at INNIO Jenbacher. “Our gas engine technologies help close supply-and-demand gaps, creating more power stability for power producers across Indonesia and helps reduce their carbon footprint. Clarke Energy will provide significant value in helping both independent and merchant power producers deliver much needed base-load power to the Indonesian grid.”
“We are pleased to add Indonesia to list of countries that we distribute Jenbacher gas engine technology and services. We look forward to installing INNIO’s advanced natural gas-fueled Jenbacher gas engines to provide dependable on-site power for Indonesian companies,” said Jamie Clarke, Chief Executive Officer of Clarke Energy. “Our engineers will work hard with customers across Indonesia to help secure the country’s energy future by expanding the use of climate friendly distributed-power technologies to enhance local energy reliability.”
