Wärtsilä offers a wide range of flexible engine power plant solutions that can provide baseload availability or support an optimised transition to renewable energy. Our flexible engine power plants can already use 100% synthetic and carbon-neutral methane and methanol and are also capable of using hydrogen/natural gas blends containing up to 25% hydrogen – and we’re working on a pure hydrogen solution.

Wärtsilä is helping to create a renewable energy future for electricity generation. Our flexible engine power plants are already capable of using completely synthetic and carbon-neutral methane and methanol. They are also capable of combusting hydrogen/natural gas blends with up to 25% hydrogen – and we’re working towards an engine and power plant concept for pure hydrogen operations.
We support our customers on the journey towards 100% renewable energy. Flexible Wärtsilä engines enable the integration of greater amounts of solar and wind. Our engines are also ready to operate on sustainable fuels in the future. Future fuels together with engines can take care of long-term energy storage needs for periods with persistently low wind or solar conditions, such as in winter or during the monsoon season.
Avoid stranded assets with economically viable and flexible solutions. Wärtsilä continually develops our solutions, offering modernisation options, cost-efficient conversions and performance improvement upgrades. When it comes to the phase out of fossil fuels, engines can already operate on 100% synthetic, carbon-neutral methane.
Wärtsilä engines offer superior single-cycle efficiency combined with fast loading and un-loading capability. This means that our engines can quickly ramp up and down as needed to balance the intermittent nature of renewables like solar and wind.
