Wartsila was picked by Ace Alliance Power Limited, a special purpose company owned by the Summit Group of Companies in Bangladesh, to supply a 150-MW Smart Power Generation plant.
The full order includes eight Wartsila 50 and one Wartsila 32 engines, as well as engineering and equipment, installation advisory services, testing and staff training.
The equipment will be delivered to the planned plant in Kodda during the second half of 2017, with the plant scheduled for operations in 2018.
Wartsila noted the growing population and economy in Bangladesh are sparking the need for more power. Over the last 20 years, Wartsila has already installed 750 MW of capacity with Summit Group and 3 GW in the country as a whole, representing roughly 25 percent of the Bangladesh capacity.
