Azerbaijan deal is Wartsila’s biggest power plant order

Finnish engine maker Wartsila has won its biggest ever single power station deal with an order to supply equipment for a 384 MW plant in Azerbaijan.

The Boyuk Shor power plant is being built close to the capital Baku and is operated by state-owned utility Azerenerji. It is due to be operational by autumn 2013.

Wartsila will supply 21 of its 50SG engines running on natural gas, related auxiliaries and process equipment.

Vesa Riihimäki, group vice-president of Wartsila Power Plants, said: “Over the years we have developed a good relationship with Azerenerji and have worked closely with the company to develop its electricity supply capacity. We have, at the same time, proven our ability to deliver on a fast-track basis, which was a major reason for us being awarded this contract.”
