Natural gas-fired power plant to receive Wärtsilä engine

Wärtsilä has been awarded a contract by Hutchinson Utilities Commission (HUC) to supply a 20-cylinder Wärtsilä 34SG engine to HUC’s existing power plant located in the city of Hutchinson, Minn. The engine will have an electrical output of 9.3 MW.

The new engine will operate on natural gas and it includes a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and oxidation catalyst system to reduce emissions. In addition, any surplus energy generated by the plant will be sold to the grid.

The installation of the new engine is scheduled for June 2012 and the facility will be fully operational in fall 2012.
