Wärtsilä to supply Smart Power Plant to Bangladesh

Wärtsilä has recently declared that it will supply a 150 MW Smart Power Generation plant to Ace Alliance Power Limited, a special purpose company owned by the Summit Group of Companies in Bangladesh. The order comprises eight Wärtsilä 50 and one Wärtsilä 32 engines. The contract includes the engineering and equipment (EEQ) with additional advisory services for the plant’s installation, testing and commissioning, as well as on-site staff training. The equipment is scheduled to be delivered during the second half of 2017, and the plant is scheduled to be operational in early 2018. The order is booked in the first quarter of 2017.
Both the population and economy are growing in Bangladesh, and a need for additional reliable power generation is evident. The new power plant will be built in Kodda in the Gazipur district, and will feed power into the national grid. Internal combustion engine-based power plants already play a key role in the country’s energy system. “With Wärtsilä we know that we get great solutions and great local support. We have been working together for 20 years and we are happy with our relationship,” says M A Wadud, Managing Director at Summit Power Ltd. With this project, Wärtsilä provides roughly 25 % of the grid capacity in Bangladesh with an installed base capacity of close to 3000 MW.
