Wartsila bags biggest Bangladesh service deal

Finland-headquartered energy technology group Wärtsilä has signed two major deals with Summit Group, the largest independent power producer in Bangladesh.

The seven-year lifecycle solution agreements are for two power plants in Gazipur, Dhaka, which have a combined capacity of 464 MW and are owned by Summit Gazipur II Power and Ace Alliance Power, a subsidiary of Summit Power.

The first plant has a capacity of 300 MW and runs on 18 heavy fuel oil engines. The second plant runs on nine of Wärtsilä’s engines. 

Wärtsilä said that the contracts mark the biggest ever service deals, in terms of megawatt generation, in the Bangladesh energy sector.

The contracts are designed to ensure maximum availability of the plants, optimize operating costs, and deliver reliable supplies to the Bangladeshi grid. As well as the seven-year maintenance deal, the agreements include yearly maintenance management coordination and condition-based maintenance services.

CBM keeps the thermal and mechanical load at an optimum level for operation conditions, and enables savings in fuel consumption, while simultaneously providing a more environmentally sound operation. 

Wärtsilä currently has in more than 4850 MW of power generation capacity either installed or on order in Bangladesh and of these, 1100 are operated and maintained by the Finnish company.
