Multi-fuel power plants

Wärtsilä multi-fuel power plants make power generation more reliable by being able to adapt to any situations that may occur regarding fuel availability or affordability.

They can even switch fuels while running, for example changing to liquid fuel mode if the gas supply is suddenly interrupted. This capability provides 24/7 security of supply, hedge against fuel price increases and preparation for future fuel infrastructure development.

Wärtsilä’s multi-fuel power plants can run in the following operation modes, and switch between them seamlessly without interrupting the power supply:

Gas only (with liquid pilot fuel): Natural gas, LNG, biogas, associated gas (GD only). Insensitive to gas quality

Liquid fuel only: Crude oil, diesel, residual oil, fuel-water emulsions, liquid biofuel

Fuel sharing mode (in GD plants): Gas and liquid fuel simultaneously. Fuel switch without power decrease, automatic and instant trip to liquid fuel mode in alarm situations

  • Malicounda, Senegal
    With 450 MW of installed capacity in Senegal, Wärtsilä is the country’s leading provider of power generation equipment. The Matelec company placed an order for the delivery of an energy efficient 130 MW Flexicycle™ power plant. This investment will enable Senegal to achieve its goal of reducing consumer electricity pricing.

  • 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.
