Powering the world



24 MW


Wärtsilä was contracted to extend a liquid biofuel-fired plant in Monopoli, on the southeast coast of Italy. The contract comprised a third Wärtsilä 18V32 diesel generating set fired by vegetable oil. Previously, Wärtsilä had been selected to supply the first two generating sets (2 x 8 MWe).

After completion of the extension, in summer 2005, the total combined heat and power (CHP) output reached 24 MW. The three units have been at full load in commercial operation since their installation, with an average plant availability of over 95%.
