Wärtsilä wins a EUR 120 million order for power generation

Wärtsilä has signed a major contract to supply power generation capacity for a Europe-based customer with international operations. The value of the equipment delivery contract is approximately EUR 120 million. The order includes Wärtsilä 50 platform gensets and auxiliary equipment. The contract was included in Wärtsilä’s order intake in the first quarter of 2015.

The Wärtsilä 50 engine platform is able to operate on dual fuel, gas and liquid fuel versions. The first model, Wärtsilä 50DF was launched in early 2000. Designed for high output with efficiency and low emissions, the dual-fuel solution represented a breakthrough in the marine LNG carrier market, replacing steam turbines as the preferred power source. For power plants, engine versions fired by specific gaseous and liquid fuels followed suit. Approximately 700 Wärtsilä 50 engines have been sold to the marine sector and 300 for energy sector applications.   

This latest order is another endorsement of Wärtsilä’s Smart Power Generation, which provides the operational flexibility and capacity agility to complement traditional forms of power generation, thereby helping to improve the performance of entire power grids. This power system optimisation provides notable benefits, including significant energy cost savings and reductions in carbon emissions.
