Finland-based power plant solutions provider has secured a contract from an independent power producer, Transmashenergo, to supply gas engines for a 110MW power plant in Russia.
The plant to be constructed at Tikhvin in Leningrad region, Russia, will work on combustion engine technology.
Under the contract, Wärtsilä will supply six 50SG engines for the gas-fired plant.
In addition, the company will provide basic and detailed engineering services, generating sets with auxiliary modules and systems, automation and control equipment, electrical system, and engine hall with stacks fitted with carbon monoxide control catalysts.
Wärtsilä will also provide installation and commissioning assistance, and training services.
Transmashenergo general director Vladimir Zhadan said Wärtsilä demonstrated the technical and economic benefits of its combustion engine technology through its global references.
"Dealing with a single source supplier having a comprehensive offering also saves us both time and costs," Zhadan added.
The construction of the plant is scheduled to begin in 2014, while upon completion it will be connected to the grid and provide reliable and efficient power supply for local industrial consumers.
