Wärtsilä Wins Four Gas Power Plant Orders From Turkey
Wärtsilä has signed agreements to supply the equipment for four gas power plants under construction in Turkey. The new gas power plants are scheduled to be operational in the spring and summer of 2010. Wärtsilä has also signed maintenance agreements for two of the installations.
Wärtsilä signed contracts to supply the equipment for an extension to the Rasa Enerji power plant in Van, in the east of Turkey, and for the Naksan power plant project in Gaziantep, located close to the Syrian border in the southeast of Turkey. A third installation is for the Marmara Pamuklu power station in Corlu, close to Tekirdag, which is located in the northwest of Turkey. Most recently, Wärtsilä has been contracted to supply equipment for the H.G. Enerji power plant project in Gediz, in the province of Kütahya in the Aegean region of the country.
The Rasa Enerji extension order consists of three Wärtsilä 20V34SG gas-powered engines, as well as the compressed air, charge air and exhaust systems for the plant. This additional 25 MW will bring the total power plant output to 106 MW, to be fed to the national grid. The Naksan power plant project is being developed by Naksan Plastik San Ve Tic A/S, who will use the electricity and heat generated by the plant for its own packaging manufacturing processes. Any surplus electricity will be sold to the national grid. The contract calls for Wärtsilä to supply the engineering and equipment, consisting of two Wärtsilä 20V34SG engines running on gas, as well as the compressed air system, radiators and charge air filters. The combined out put will be approximately 18 MW.
The third Wärtsilä contract is for three Wärtsilä 20V34SG engines to be installed in an extension to the Marmara Pamuklu power station in Corlu, Turkey. The engines will be run on natural gas and will have a combined output of 25 MW. The contract has been awarded by Marmara Pamuklu Mensucat San ve Tic A/S, a textile and paper producer who will use heat from the power plant for its paper and combined cycle processing. The latest project contract has been placed by H.G.Enerji Elektrik Üretimi Sanayi Ve Ticaret AS, a company specialising in textiles. The order consists of six Wärtsilä 20V34SG engines running on gas and producing a total output of 50 MW, plus all ancillary equipment with the exception of the boiler. The electricity generated will be sold to the national grid.
