Wärtsilä to supply 220 MW power plant to Bangladesh`s Orion Group

The technology group Wärtsilä has been contracted to supply two more power plants to Bangladesh.

Orion Group, one of the country’s leading industrial conglomerates, is developing two 110 MW power plants, each of which will operate on six Wärtsilä 50 engines running on heavy fuel oil (HFO).

The Wärtsilä order was booked in July, 2017, said a press release from Wärtsilä.

The contract for these base load plants follows a string of power plant orders that Wärtsilä has received from Bangladeshi companies.

The country continues to invest in developing its energy infrastructure in order to meet the electric needs for industrial developments, and to overcome a general power shortage.

The two equipment supply contracts are for the Orion Power Rupsha and the Orion Power Sonargaon projects.

The Rupsha plant, located in Lodonchora, is being developed on a fast-track schedule and is due to become fully operational in May 2018. The six Wärtsilä 50 engines will be delivered in December of this year.

The Sonargaon plant is scheduled to be in operation by August, 2018 with the Wärtsilä delivery scheduled for January of that year. The electricity generated by these plants will be fed to the national grid.

“We have previously installed Wärtsilä engines in three other power plant projects and we have had very good experience with them. Both the equipment and the support we receive from the company are reliable and efficient, and we are very pleased to have them as a partner in these two important projects,” commented Salman Karim, Managing Director of Orion Power.

Wärtsilä’s ability to deliver in accordance with the tight scheduling needs of these contracts was cited as being an important factor in the award of these contracts. Furthermore, the low heat rate of the Wärtsilä 50 engine fulfills the customer’s expectations.

These latest deliveries will bring Wärtsilä’s total installed base in Bangladesh to more than 3700 MW.
