Wärtsilä 50DF multi-fuel power plant

Multi-fuel operation with high efficiency 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.

  • Most efficient multi-fuel simple-cycle solution, with over 48% efficiency
  • Can operate on natural gas or any liquid fuel, including HFO, and switch between them back and forth while delivering power to the grid.
  • Full power can be achieved with a wide range of gas qualities.
  • Robust, reliable genset, proven in the most challenging environments
  • Combination of low emissions in gas mode with an efficient liquid fuel mode that can use low-grade fuel oils.
