Suggested range of engines

Suggested range of engines

Based on your selections we suggest that you familiarize yourself with our range of gas engines. Once we have a deeper understanding of your power plant needs we can further define which specific engine model is most suitable for your power plant project.

The main products in our gas engine range are presented here: 

Wärtsilä 34SG (ca 10MW unit) - agility and flexibility combined with high efficiency over the whole load range and in any operating profile makes this plant excellent for both flexible baseload and peak load, and supporting the grid with a variety of ancillary services.

  • Centrica, UK
    The rapid growth in renewable energy in the UK has increased the need for flexible power to balance the electricity grid. Wärtsilä has worked closely with energy and services company Centrica to provide the changing market with flexible energy, helping tackle the issues created by intermittent renewables and supporting the transition to a low-carbon energy system.

  • Marquette Energy Center, USA
    When the temperature drops to –40 degrees Celsius, blackouts are not an option. In order to secure a reliable energy supply and enable more renewable energy, Marquette Board of Light and Power (MBLP) in Michigan, USA, opted for Wärtsilä Smart Power Generation technology. As an added benefit, the ultra-flexible power plant provides a new source of income by following real-time electricity prices. The dual-fuel plant replaces old coal-fired capacity.

  • Woodland 3, Modesto, California, USA
    The state of California is known for its amazing nature and climate. Being home to beautiful beaches, sandy deserts and redwood forests alike, it is hard to find a corner of the planet with comparable natural and climatic diversity. It’s certainly called the Golden State for a reason! But to keep it golden, its inhabitants and regulators are very aware that its fate cannot be left to chance. Climate change is a real threat, and biological degradation could pose a serious risk to an agricultural region that feeds well over 100 million people.

  • Port Westward Unit 2 Portland, Oregon, USA
    Portland General Electric Company (PGE) is an investor-owned utility (IOU) located in the Pacific Northwest, which provides electric service to industrial, commercial and residential customers in Portland, Oregon, and surrounding communities. Today, PGE serves more than 800,000 customers within their 4000-square-mile service territory comprising 52 Oregon cities. In 2009, PGE submitted an Integrated Resource Plan to the Oregon Public Utility Commission (OPUC) which stated the need for approximately 200 MW of flexible peaking capacity.

  • IPP3, Jordan
    Right next to a tinderbox lies the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, an upper-income economy ranked with an advanced status by the European Union since 2010. With its quickly growing young population and increasing GDP, Jordan’s rising electricity needs are racing against futile fuel supplies. Historically seen as an energy-poor country, the kingdom continuously imports 97% of its fuel from abroad.

  • Arun - Sumatra, Indonesia
    With a population of nearly 250 million and an economy that has grown at an average of 5.6 per cent a year over the last decade, Indonesia is hungry for power. To improve electrification and meet a demand that is expected to grow at 9-10 per cent per annum in the coming years, much of the new capacity that is being added is in the form of large baseload coal fired plant. However, building an optimum generating system that can also meet peak electricity demand is a challenge.

  • UTE Linhares, Brazil
    Linhares Geração S.A. of Brazil has ordered a stand-by gas power plant with 24 Wärtsilä 20V34SG engines. The power plant with a total output of 204 MW is supplied under an EPC contract.

  • Plains End I & II, CO, USA
    When deciding on the technology for Plains End I & II, the critical factors for Cogentrix were the ability to operate at peak efficiency in demanding ambient conditions (6150 feet (1845 m) above sea level, average temperature of 97°F (36°C)), and the capability to cope with sudden load swings created by wind power and the distinct wind patterns in the Rocky Mountains.
