Multi-fuel power plants

Wärtsilä multi-fuel power plants make power generation more reliable by being able to adapt to any situations that may occur regarding fuel availability or affordability.

They can even switch fuels while running, for example changing to liquid fuel mode if the gas supply is suddenly interrupted. This capability provides 24/7 security of supply, hedge against fuel price increases and preparation for future fuel infrastructure development.

Quisqueya I & II multi-fuel power plant

Wärtsilä’s multi-fuel power plants can run in the following operation modes, and switch between them seamlessly without interrupting the power supply:

Gas only (with liquid pilot fuel): Natural gas, LNG, biogas, associated gas (GD only). Insensitive to gas quality

Liquid fuel only: Crude oil, diesel, residual oil, fuel-water emulsions, liquid biofuel

Fuel sharing mode (in GD plants): Gas and liquid fuel simultaneously. Fuel switch without power decrease, automatic and instant trip to liquid fuel mode in alarm situations

  • Marquette Energy Center, USA
    When the temperature drops to –40 degrees Celsius, blackouts are not an option. In order to secure a reliable energy supply and enable more renewable energy, Marquette Board of Light and Power (MBLP) in Michigan, USA, opted for Wärtsilä Smart Power Generation technology. As an added benefit, the ultra-flexible power plant provides a new source of income by following real-time electricity prices. The dual-fuel plant replaces old coal-fired capacity.

  • IPP3, Jordan
    Right next to a tinderbox lies the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, an upper-income economy ranked with an advanced status by the European Union since 2010. With its quickly growing young population and increasing GDP, Jordan’s rising electricity needs are racing against futile fuel supplies. Historically seen as an energy-poor country, the kingdom continuously imports 97% of its fuel from abroad.
