Two Contracts, Two Power Plants
Wärtsilä has received two contracts to supply power plant generating equipment to Bangladesh. The total overall output of these two plants will be more than 200 MW, and they will produce electricity to be supplied to the national grid.
In each case, delivery will be made on a fast-track basis in order to meet tight construction schedules. Both plants are scheduled to be operational before the end of 2012.
PowerPac Mutiara Jamalpur Power Plant Ltd, an independent power producer (IPP), has ordered 12, 20-cylinder Wärtsilä 32 generator sets with a total output of 100 MW. The new power plant will operate initially on heavy fuel oil (HFO), but the engines are able to switch to gas operation when natural gas supply becomes available.
The same owner - PowerPac-Mutiara Consortium - has also ordered six, 18-cylinder Wärtsilä 46 engines in V-configuration and auxiliary equipment for its Khulna power plant project. The output of the Khulna power plant will be more than 100 MW.
