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.

Wärtsilä’s multi-fuel power plants can run in the following operation modes:

  • 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

  • PLTD Pesanggaran, Bali
    Indonesia is one of Asia’s fastest growing economies in terms of energy consumption. With a steadily growing population of nearly 270 million and an increasing rate of urbanization, there is significant need for a reliable and guaranteed supply of power throughout the archipelago. In recent years, the country has been successful in increasing installed capacity and investments in infrastructure to both improve the reliability and efficiency of the main grids such as the Java-Grid and increase electrification of the small grids.

  • Malicounda, Senegal
    With 450 MW of installed capacity in Senegal, Wärtsilä is the country’s leading provider of power generation equipment. The Matelec company placed an order for the delivery of an energy efficient 130 MW Flexicycle™ power plant. This investment will enable Senegal to achieve its goal of reducing consumer electricity pricing.

  • 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.
