Wärtsilä 50SG gas power plant

High efficiency in a small footprint combined with high reliability and flexibility makes this solution perfect for flexible baseload applications including daily starts and stops, also providing ancillary services like regulation up&down and tertiary reserves.

  • Most efficient single-cycle solution: over 50% efficiency with turbogenerator
  • Combined cycle-like efficiency from a simple cycle solution
  • Full power can be achieved with a wide range of gas qualities, a varying methane number or heating value do not affect the operation
  • Robust, reliable genset, proven in the most challenging environments
  • Makes the most out of the cleanest fossil fuel available - natural gas
  • Minimum area requirement for a given output
