Wärtsilä is to supply twenty one 50SG engines for a 384 MW gas power plant to Azerbaijan, the largest single power plant order ever for the company.
Wärtsilä has been awarded the contract to supply a 384 MW gas power plant to Azerbaijan. In terms of output, this is the largest single power plant order that Wärtsilä has received to date. When completed, the Boyuk Shor power plant located close to the capital Baku, will be operated by Azerenerji JSC, the state-owned utility. The order is included in Wärtsilä’s second quarter 2012 order book.
Wärtsilä’s scope of supply will be 21 Wärtsilä 50SG engines running on natural gas, related auxiliaries and process equipment. The plant is scheduled to be operational in autumn 2013, and will supply electricity to the Baku regional grid.
One of Wärtsilä’s key strategic targets is to achieve growth in the gas power plant markets, and this latest order strengthens its leading position in this field.
