Wärtsilä To Supply Power Equipment For India Power Plant
Wärtsilä, a global supplier of decentralized power plant products, has signed an agreement with KVK Energy Group to supply power generating equipment and engineering for a gas power plant set for construction in Rajahmundry, Andhra Pradesh, India.
The scope of supply includes eight Wärtsilä W20V34SG gas engine generators and auxiliaries, as well as the engineering, construction and commissioning of the power plant. Construction has already started as part of a previous order in March 2010 when three engines were contracted. With the additional eight engines, the power plant will produce more than 100 MW.
The engines and gen-sets will be delivered in the second half of 2011, with the entire plant becoming fully operational at the end of 2011. Two of the previously ordered sets however, will start producing electricity at the end of October.
The power plant will initially provide baseload power to the national grid, and later be used to meet the grid’s peak load requirements.
