Wärtsilä IPP Plants for Cambodian
Wärtsilä Corporation announced that it has won two contracts for power plants on the outskirts of Phnom Penh, Cambodia. One project is a 45 MW diesel power plant to be built for a Cambodian IPP (independent power producer), Cambodia Electricity Pte Co Ltd. Due for delivery in June 2006, the plant is being built under a turnkey contract with a consortium led by Wärtsilä and including Comin Asia Pte Ltd of Singapore, and Wärtsilä’s Cambodian partner Comin Khmere Ltd. The plant will comprise six Wärtsilä 18V32 generating sets, all running on heavy fuel oil. Generated power will be delivered to the Cambodian grid.
The second project is a 15.6 MW extension to a 30 MW diesel power plant of another Cambodian IPP investor; Khmer Electrical Power Co Ltd. As with the original plant, the extension is being delivered on a turnkey basis by the same consortium comprising Wärtsilä, Comin Asia Pte Ltd, and Comin Khmere Ltd. The extension will comprise two Wärtsilä 18V32 generating sets. The engines will operate on baseload, burning heavy fuel oil. The extension is due to be handed over in July 2006 and will be delivering electricity to the Cambodian national grid.
