Flexible, efficient and environmentally advanced energy solutions
We know that flexibility is the key to profitable power generation. Our combustion engine plants provide ultimate flexibility with high efficiency, harnessing gaseous, liquid or biofuels.
Whether you prioritise baseload, peaking power or grid stability services, we have a solution for it.
Gas power plants
Wärtsilä gas power plants use natural gas, the cleanest fossil fuel available, in the most economical way. This is possible thanks to their high efficiency at any load and unbeatable flexibility to start and stop exactly according to needs.
Besides the combination of efficiency and flexibility, these gas power plants also offer low emissions, and can provide a great amount of power in a reduced site, making it the optimal solution for locations where minimizing the environmental impact is a priority. As such, they can be placed close to consumption nodes, optimizing the power system.
Wärtsilä gas power plants can run on natural gas, LPG and various biogases.
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:
Gas only (with liquid pilot fuel): Natural gas, LNG, biogas, associated gas (GD only). Insensitive to gas quality
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
Liquid fuel power plants
Liquid fuel power plants make power available anywhere, anytime. Proven long-term reliability makes these plants suitable for stationary and floating baseload, and for stand-by applications.
Wärtsilä liquid fuel power plants bring great value to the table, such as:
Tremendous fuel flexibility, with the possibility of running on heavy fuel oil, light fuel oil, crude oil, emulsified fuels or liquid biofuel.
Great dispatchability, ability to supply megawatts to grid within seconds, and reach full plant load in minutes.
Utilising heavy fuel oil (HFO) in the most efficient way possible.
Liquid biofuel power plants
Our liquid biofuel power plants are designed to operate on crude vegetable oils or animal fats. The oils can typically be extracted with simple methods so that even the CO2 emissions associated with the fuel production are minimized.
We have liquid biofuel power plants with a total combined output of 820 MW. Our largest liquid biofuel power plant is the ItalGreen plant in Italy with a total output of 115 MW.
