Powering the world

United Ashuganj


200 MW

”In a developing economy like Bangladesh where you will always have erratic demand for electricity use, you have to have these kinds of modular plants which can ramp production up and down within minutes. Absolutely, this is going to be the future.”

- Moinuddin Hasan Rashid, Managing Director of United Enterprises & Co. Ltd.



Both for Wärtsilä and for Bangladesh, the United Ashuganj 200 MW modular power plant project is a true ground-breaker. Not only is it the first public-private partnership (PPP) in the nation’s energy sector, it will introduce a type of co-generation plant never before seen in the country. It is also Wärtsilä’s largest single power plant project in Asia to date. 

Chronic constraints in fuel supply, coupled with outdated and inefficient infrastructure, have meant that blackouts and brownouts are common in the country of 150 million.
