Wärtsilä Energy Solutions

Energizing Saudi Arabia

Wärtsilä power plants are the ideal solution for decentralized power production and an attractive alternative to the conventional model of centralized power plants.

Wärtsilä’s solutions are available for large plants of 500 + MW capacity. Our gas based power plants are highly flexible and offer the following benefits:

  • Substantial reduction in Carbon emission.
  • Negligible water consumption.
  • Minimal Land requirement which means saving in deforestation and displacement of people.
  • Higher efficiency leading to saving of primary energy in the power sector.
  • Reduction in investment on Transmission Network.
  • Savings in Operational & Capital costs.

Our power plants can be used for base-load applications or for peak-load needs or to complement wind energy. Our engines can handle liquid fuels such as HFO/LSHS, LFO, LBF or natural gas. Versatile dual-fuel engines can switch between liquid fuel and gas, on line. The CCHP solutions have a very low CO2 footprint, and merit status of ‘deemed renewable energy’.

We provide complete EPC solutions and lifecycle O&M support. 

Wärtsilä Energy Solutions has now an installed base of more than 7000 MW with close to 384 power plants of different types in the Middle East region. This includes the largest power plant in the world, IPP3 in Jordan, powered by 38 Wärtsilä 50DF multi-fuel engines with a combined capacity of 573 MW. In recognition of its world record size, the plant has been accepted into the Guinness book of records.

We have a total installed based of 1,897.5 MW in Saudi Arabia, with a large service organisation to provide lifecycle support to customers.

  • Utilities: 310 MW
  • Cement: 879 MW
  • Industrial: 371.5 MW
  • Others: 337 MW
