The technology group Wärtsilä will supply a flexible baseload 200 MW power plant to a country in the Northern Andes. The flexibility of the efficient yet fast-starting Wärtsilä solution will provide the grid balancing capability that is essential with increasing amounts of intermittent wind and solar power generation entering the power systems. At the same time, it will serve as a capacity plant to back up the system in cases of shortage. The contract was signed in June.

Commercial operation is scheduled to commence at the end of 2021. When operational, the 200 MW plant will supply electricity to the national grid. The plant will be powered by 11 Wärtsilä 50SG engines running on natural gas. Wärtsilä is supplying and installing the plant on a full engineering, procurement, and construction basis.
