Wärtsilä Corporation, Press release, 18 August 2017 at 12.00 pm EET
The technology group Wärtsilä today announced it had signed a contract with Bangladesh-based Summit Group to supply equipment totalling 300 MW. The power plant will be located in Gazipur and comprises eighteen Wärtsilä 46 engines operating on heavy fuel oil. The scope of supply for this project are the engine sets along with auxiliaries. The order is added to Wärtsilä’s order book for the third quarter. This is a fast-track delivery, which will be fully completed in nine months. The equipment is scheduled to be delivered by November 2017 and the power plant is expected to be fully operational in March 2018.
The Bangladeshi economy, industries and population are growing and this growth puts strain on power supply and creates a need for more reliable power generation that can be added to the national grid.
