Wärtsilä has signed an agreement with KVK Energy Group to supply power generating equipment and engineering for a gas power plant to be built at Rajahmundry in the state of Andhra Pradesh, India.

Under the agreement, Wärtsilä will supply eight W20V34SG gas engine generators and auxiliaries, engineering, erection and commissioning of the power plant.

The power plant will initially provide baseload power to the national grid, but will be used to meet the grid's peak load requirements in the long term.

The eight engine generator and related equipment are scheduled to be delivered in the second half of 2011.

The plant will be fully operational by the end of 2010 and will be able to produce a combined output of over 100MW.

Wärtsilä has delivered 250-plus power plants to India until date with an output of 3,500MW.
