Miami university selects Wärtsilä for intermediate peaking power

16 March 2004 – Miami University at Oxford in Ohio, USA, has selected Wärtsilä to supply an intermediate peaking power system to supply electricity to its students during peak and intermediate demand hours.

Wärtsilä will supply two Wärtsilä 18V34SG generator sets for the project, each producing 5732 kW. Each generator is scheduled to operate up to 2500 h annually. The project will increase the reserve capacity of the university’s power system, reducing the possibility of power outages. The plant was designed by Cummins & Barnard, Inc., of Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA. Cummins & Barnard provides engineering and consulting services for power generation, project development and facilities engineering.
