Good Things Come In Three
Wärtsilä has received three more contracts to supply power plant generating equipment to Bangladesh. The overall output of these plants will be more than 250 MW, and all of them will produce electricity to be supplied to the national grid.
Delivery of the plants will be made on a fast-track basis in order to meet the tight construction schedules. These three contracts follow two other power plant orders from Bangladesh that Wärtsilä announced earlier this week. One of the power plants is scheduled to be operational before the end of 2012 and two are planned to be in operation by April 2013.
Ace Alliance Power Ltd., an independent power producer (IPP), has ordered 17, 20-cylinder Wärtsilä 32 engines and auxiliary units with a total output of 150 MW. The new power plant will operate initially on heavy fuel oil (HFO), but the engines will be able to run on natural gas.
The second order from the Independent Power Producer Raj-Lanka Power Co. Ltd. comprises six, 20-cylinder Wärtsilä 32 generating sets with auxiliaries, which will produce a total output of 50 MW. The third order is from Max-Lanka Power Ltd., which is also an IPP. The new Max-Lanka Power site will operate using six, 20-cylinder Wärtsilä 32 engines plus auxiliary units. The engines, which will have an output of 50 MW, will also run on HFO until natural gas becomes available.
