Wärtsilä Receives Four Orders For Power Plants In Bangladesh
Wärtsilä, a global supplier of decentralized power plant products, has received four orders to supply power plants to customers in Bangladesh, adding more than 300 MW of generating capacity to the national grid. The four orders, valued at more than US$128.7 million (€100 million), were signed in July and August of this year.
These four orders are in addition to the contracts for six power plants the Bangladesh government ordered during the second quarter of this year. In July, Guangdong Power Engineering Corp., a Chinese contractor working on behalf of the Bangladesh national utility, ordered Wärtsilä equipment for two power plant projects in Dohazari and Hathazari, Bangladesh.
Six Wärtsilä 18V46GD gas-diesel engines producing 102 MW total will power the Dohazari plant, while 11 Wärtsilä 20V32GD gas-diesel engines producing 98 MW total will power the Hathazari plant.
In August, Khanjahan Ali Power Co. Ltd, an independent power producer that produces and sells power to the national grid, ordered 11 Wärtsilä 20V32 engines plus auxiliary equipment for another two power plants that will be constructed in Noapora and Northern Katakhali, Bangladesh. The two plants will provide nearly 100 MW of power.
