Wärtsilä and Uniper plan Bremen CHP

20 May 2020

Wärtsilä and Uniper have been contracted to deliver a 105 MW combined heat and power (CHP) gas engine plant to the city of Bremen in Germany.

The companies will deliver nine Wärtsilä 31SG gas engines for the plant, which is owned by Bremen’s public utility, swb Erzeugung GmbH und Co. KG.

When operational in mid-2022, heat from the plant will be able to supply the city of Bremen’s district heating network and feed electricity into the grid in Germany, replacing an existing coal-fired power plant.

The plant will operate in winter on flexible CHP mode with district heating and the heat storage at the power plant, and in summer on peaking load with heat storage, mostly working on the volatile power markets for day ahead and intraday.

The power plant comes with a Wärtsilä Guaranteed asset performance service agreement valid for three years with an option for seven more years. The agreement includes all maintenance services, performance guarantees, and training of swb Erzeugung’s personnel. The maintenance services provided by Wärtsilä will be supported by the company’s digital technologies, such as asset diagnostics as well remote monitoring and analysis.
