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.
