Manisa, Turkey

85 MW

Wärtsilä was awarded a power plant contract for an 85 MWe replacement, and extension of an existing diesel power plant at Manisa in Western Turkey. It involved the very first three Wärtsilä 50DF generating sets for a power plant installation, delivered in 2004. Four Wärtsilä 34SG sets were added in an extension in 2005.

The new engines replaced three Wärtsilä 18V46 diesel generating sets running on light fuel oil. The new plant allowed changing fuels from oil to natural gas. It was supplied under an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract.

The power plant serves the Manisa Organised Industrial District (MOSB), one of Turkey’s largest business centres. The MOSB houses industrial companies from paper, electronics, furniture and chemicals to food and textiles.
