Delimara power plant 3 gas conversion

Gas conversion reduces power plant emission levels

Shanghai Electric Power reduced both electricity production costs and emission levels at their Delimara 3 Power Plant in Malta as eight Wärtsilä HFO-fuelled engines were converted to run on natural gas including installation of the new UNIC C3 engine control system. This means a lower heat rate for the engines, increased efficiency, higher power output capacity, and lower emissions, in other words, reduced operational costs.


“We are very happy to be working with Wärtsilä on this gas conversion project. This project is Shanghai Electric Power’s first step into Europe, and we look forward to a long and fruitful co-operation with Wärtsilä."

Mr. Tan Qing, Project Manager, Shanghai Electric Power Limited.
