Wärtsilä will supply a 150 MW smart power generation plant to Ace Alliance Power, a special purpose company owned by the Summit group of companies in Bangladesh. The order comprises eight Wärtsilä 50 and one Wärtsilä 32 engines. The contract includes the engineering and equipment (EEQ) with additional advisory services for the plant’s installation, testing and commissioning, as well as on-site staff training. The equipment is scheduled to be delivered during the second half of 2017, and the plant is scheduled to be operational in early 2018. The order is booked in the first quarter of 2017. Both the population and economy are growing in Bangladesh, and a need for additional reliable power generation is evident. The new power plant will be built in Kodda in the Gazipur district, and will feed power into the national grid. Internal combustion engine-based power plants already play a key role in the country’s energy system. The Summit Group of Companies is the largest independent power producer in Bangladesh, and has a long-established relationship in power plant construction with Wärtsilä.
