Wärtsilä has secured a contract to provide engines for a new 220MW baseload power plant in Chandpur, Bangladesh.

The company will supply 12 18-cylinder Wärtsilä 50 engines that run on heavy fuel oil.

Delivery of the first Wärtsilä engine is expected to be carried out by November this year, while the remaining engines will be delivered one month later.

"[The Chandpur plant] is scheduled to be fully operational by May next year."

The latest order is set to bring Wärtsilä’s total installed base in Bangladesh to more than 3,500MW.

Desh Energy Chandpur Power Company will operate the new plant, which is scheduled to be fully operational by May next year.

Desh Energy Chandpur Power Company managing director Navidul Huq said: “There is an urgent need for additional electrical capacity in this region, and having this plant built in such a short time will certainly help alleviate this situation.”
