Wartsila wins 150 MW Bangladesh plant deal

Finnish energy company Wartsila is to supply a 150 MW power plant in Bangladesh.

The contract is with Ace Alliance Power, a special-purpose firm owned by the Summit Group, the largest independent power producer in Bangladesh.

The order comprises eight of Wartsila’s 50 dual fuel engines and one of its 32 diesel engines.

The contract covers engineering and equipment as well as advisory services for the plant's installation, testing and commissioning, and on-site staff training.

The equipment is due to be delivered during the second half of this year 2017 with the plant scheduled to be operational in early 2018.

The new plant will be built in Kodda in the Gazipur district and will feed power into the national grid.

Wartsila has been active in Bangladesh for some time and said that its existing plants plus the Kodda project would result in it providing roughly 25 per cent of grid capacity in Bangladesh, with an installed base capacity of close to 3000 MW.
