Wärtsilä awarded 220 MW power plant contract

30 August 2017

Wärtsilä has been contracted to supply the engines for a new 220 MW baseload power plant to be installed in Chandpur, Bangladesh. The full scope of the order consists of twelve 18-cylinder type 50 engines running on heavy fuel oil. The order comes from independent power producer Desh Energy Chandpur Power Company and the plant when operational will supply power direct to the national grid.
Delivery of the Wärtsilä equipment is being carried out on a fast-track basis to meet the customer's required schedule of a nine month project implementation time. The plant is due to be fully operational in May 2018 with the first engines to arrive on site in November of this year, the remainder to be delivered one month later.
"There is an urgent need for additional electrical capacity in this region, and having this plant built in such a short time will certainly help alleviate this situation," commented Navidul Huq, the managing director of Desh Energy Chandpur Power Co.
This latest order will bring Wärtsilä's total installed base in Bangaldesh to more than 3500 MW.
