Liquid fuel power plants

Liquid fuel power plants make power available anywhere, anytime. Proven long-term reliability makes these plants suitable for stationary and floating baseload, and for stand-by applications.

Hera liquid fuel power plant

Wärtsilä liquid fuel power plants bring great value to the table, such as:

  • Tremendous fuel flexibility, with the possibility of running on heavy fuel oil, light fuel oil, crude oil, emulsified fuels or liquid biofuel.
  • Great dispatchability, ability to supply megawatts to grid within seconds, and reach full plant load in minutes.
  • Utilising heavy fuel oil (HFO) in the most efficient way possible.
  • Denton, Texas, USA
    Creating a power system that generates 70% of its electricity from renewable power sources is something most cities haven’t even thought of. The city of Denton, on the other hand, will have achieved this by 2019, thus making it a forerunner – not only in the USA but in the entire world – for such a sizeable integration of renewables into the supply. What makes this even more remarkable is that Denton is able to do this in an economically sensible way with the help of Wärtsilä’s ultra-flexible power plant.

  • 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.

  • Huinala, Mexico
    Mexico is quickly amending its energy laws, creating a new electricity market and allowing the private sector to participate freely in the generation and sale of electricity. The new strategy targets private and international investors, thus changing the market situation. The new regulations pave way for independent power producer (IPP) projects that will help the Mexican energy sector to not only cover the national demand, but also export electricity to its neighbouring countries.

  • Tornio Manga LNG terminal, Finland
    The Tornio Manga LNG terminal is a long-term infrastructure investment programme. The beneficiaries include shipping and road transportation companies, power and heat utilities, as well as other industrial and mining companies in northern Europe. We appreciate Wärtsilä’s participation as a valuable partner in this project with special value-adding capabilities in this field.
