Liquid fuel power plants

Liquid fuel power plants make power available anywhere, anytime. Proven long-term reliability makes these plants suitable for stationary and floating baseload, and for stand-by applications.

Wärtsilä liquid fuel power plants bring great value to the table, such as:

  • Tremendous fuel flexibility, with the possibility of running on heavy fuel oil, light fuel oil, crude oil, emulsified fuels or liquid biofuel.
  • Great dispatchability, ability to supply megawatts to grid within seconds, and reach full plant load in minutes.
  • Utilising heavy fuel oil (HFO) in the most efficient way possible.
  • 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.

  • Huinala, Mexico
    Mexico is quickly amending its energy laws, creating a new electricity market and allowing the private sector to participate freely in the generation and sale of electricity. The new strategy targets private and international investors, thus changing the market situation. The new regulations pave way for independent power producer (IPP) projects that will help the Mexican energy sector to not only cover the national demand, but also export electricity to its neighbouring countries.

  • Tornio Manga LNG terminal, Finland
    The Tornio Manga LNG terminal is a long-term infrastructure investment programme. The beneficiaries include shipping and road transportation companies, power and heat utilities, as well as other industrial and mining companies in northern Europe. We appreciate Wärtsilä’s participation as a valuable partner in this project with special value-adding capabilities in this field.

  • McArthur River Mine, Australia
    The McArthur River Mine in the Gulf of Carpentaria,Northern Territory of Australia, is one of the world’s largest providers of zinc in bulk concentrate form. Operated by McArthur River Mining Pty Ltd (MRM), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the international Glencore group, the mine produces approximately 3 per cent of the world’s total zinc resources used by all types of smelters each year.
