The technology group Wärtsilä has been awarded to supply a 78 MW engine power plant on a fast-track basis in order to support the growth of an industrial complex in Bangladesh. The order was placed in November by Jamuna Power, a part of the Jamuna Group, one of Bangladesh’s largest industrial conglomerates. The plant will be installed at the Jamuna Industrial Park project in the northeastern part of the country, and it will operate on eight Wärtsilä 34SG engines fueled by gas.

The industrial park is currently operating on electricity from the national grid. However, as more and more factories are being built, independent power generation is needed to ensure a reliable supply of electricity, and to control the cost of that supply. The continued development of the complex is largely dependent upon having an own power plant for the industrial units, which is why Wärtsilä’s ability to deliver on a fast-track basis was an important factor in the award of the contract.

Delivery of the Wärtsilä equipment will be completed during the first half of 2020, and the plant is expected to become fully operational in early 2021.
