MAXpower is Asia’s leading developer, owner and operator of small and medium-size gas-fired power plants. We deliver clean, scalable and affordable power to the most remote and under-supplied parts of Indonesia and Myanmar in record times.
Typically, MAXpower projects vary between 1 and 100MW in size and are completed in two to six months, supporting fast growing economies, without access to national grids or pipelines.
- Distributed Generation
In scenarios where the delivery of electricity to a city or region is restricted by inadequate or inefficient transmission lines, a utility company may determine the amount of additional electricity required at a particular location to avoid blackouts. Distributed generation provides an efficient and secure method of delivering additional electricity at a local level and can help improve the overall efficiency of the customer’s electrical system. As the local demand increases, more power modules can easily be deployed to augment the installed capacity on site.
- Replacement Power
In emerging markets the only solutions for providing power in remote areas has been diesel generated power. This has lead to extremely high costs of generation for the state owned utility companies and an increasing state subsidy budget to bridge the gap between generation costs and what the public can afford. To reduce this subsidy gap MAXpower is replacing diesel fired power plants with our gas fired power plants at several locations in SEA.
- Industrial Generation
Industrial companies and mining facilities operating independently often require a dedicated source of electricity. An unreliable supply from a local grid or limited access to the main transmission network may impair the delivery of electricity required for the customer to sustain production and operations. Industrial and mining customers are dependent upon constant power to ensure that maximum operational capacity is achieved and costly plant outages are avoided.
- Emergency Power
The need for fast-track capacity is often due to the inadequacy of an existing supply. Such situations can be driven by the failure of a power plant, natural disaster, weather phenomenon, or some other unforeseen catastrophe.
- Peak Shaving
In markets where the demand for electricity exceeds the available power generation capacity, utilities need to consider the practicalities of load management and load shedding during peak demand times of the day.
- Bridging Power
Utilities require additional power support for periods when current power facilities are undergoing maintenance or being replaced or upgraded to newer, more efficient technologies.
- Depending on the specific requirements of each project and location, we offer a flexible range of configurations based on installed capacity, fuel quality and technology requirements, as well as the proven ability to re-deploy our assets upon completion of contracts (for rental & tolling agreements).
- MAXpower turnkey plants are highly scalable and mobile. Our projects typically range from 1 MW to over 100 MW, and are configured to meet our customers’ unique requirements for fast and efficient power. The design of the MAXpower’s solution has been developed to enable fast-track mobilization and installation, while ensuring performance that operationally meets all guaranteed availability and efficiency requirements throughout the life of a project.
- MAXpower’s full turnkey approach also includes step up MV or HV transformers to deliver electricity in accordance with the customer’s specific requirements.
- Typically MAXpower will have a sizeable fleet of gas engines and auxiliary equipment in stock to provide our clients with a fast solution for their immediate power needs.
Independent Power Producer: MAXpower builds, owns and operates (“BOO”) the asset with supply of electricity to either a private and public off-taker. The key underlying contracts of an “IPP project” is the entering into a gas sales agreement (feedstock) between the operator and the gas supplier and a Power Purchase Agreement between the offtake and the operator whereby the power price is inclusive of gas cost. Under an IPP arrangement, there is no transfer of the facility to the buyer at the end of the term of the IPP contract.
Build, Own, Operate and Transfer: MAXpower builds, owns, operates and, at the end of the term of the agreement, transfers the asset to the counterparty, either public or private. In comparison to an IPP project, the Owner/Operator is not responsible for feedstock and gas is referred to as “pass through”, the obligation and financial responsibility of the energy buyer.
Build, Own, and Operate: Under a BOO, the producer converts gas supplied by the buyer to electricity, whereby the gas passes through the producers facility and the energy produced is charged at a tolling rate.
Rental: Similar to a BOO, the contractor will rent the equipment/facility and typically operates and maintains the equipment/facility, as a service, and will charge the off-taker either a flat rate per day, week or month fee or at a rate pursuant to the amount of electricity supplied in kWh.
MAXpower’s installed gas engine fleet is 100% powered by GE Jenbacher gas engines. For over a half century, GE’s Austrian-based gas engine business has been at the forefront of development and production of gas-fueled engines, packaged generator sets, and cogeneration units for the efficient generation of power and heat.
GE’s gas engines, ranging from 0.3 to 9.5 MW, are designed for stationary, continuous duty operation. Known for their high efficiencies, low emissions, durability, and high reliability, the engines run on natural gas or a variety of other gases including biogas, landfill gas, coal mine gas, sewage gas, combustible industrial waste gases.
MAXpower develops two distinct plant designs: enclosure based or a power house, depending on location, tenure of the contracts and installed capacity.
