MAN Supplying 16 Engines
Power plant engines to Bangladesh, Niger
MAN Diesel & Turbo has received two orders to supply power plant engines to Asia and Africa. Together, the two supply projects are worth €60 million.
For the Bangladeshi Maisha Group, MAN Diesel & Turbo will supply twelve 18V32/40 engines for a 108 MW power plant that will provide additional peak load power to the state capital, Dhaka. The plant will produce electricity for the state energy provider Bangladesh Power Development Board for 15 years. Delivery of the engines is scheduled for 2014.
MAN has received the order to supply four 18V48/60TS engines for a new 80 MW power plant in Niamey in the Republic of Niger. The customer is the Republic of Niger's Ministry of Energy and Petroleum, and the power plant will be operated by state-owned electricity supplier Société Nigérienne d'Electricité. Commissioning of the engines is scheduled for the first half of 2015.
MAN said the 18V48/60TS engine can be operated with all common fuels and meets the World Bank's 2008 emissions specifications. The engine features the principle of two-stage turbocharging, which allows efficiency, reduced fuel consumption and low emissions to be achieved, the company said.
