Finnish companies ensure power supply abroad

The Wärtsilä 31SG engine is the world’s world’s most efficient four-stroke gas engine, introduced after the success of its diesel counterpart Wärtsilä 31.Wärtsilä

Three Finnish industrial heavyweights, namely Pöyry, Wärtsilä and Valmet, have landed contracts for various power plant projects internationally.

First up, Pöyry has been awarded an owner’s engineer services assignment for a 1 140 MW combined cycle power plant in Johor, Malaysia, by Southern Power Generation. As part of the contract Pöyry will lend its expertise in project management, design review, site supervision and quality control, as well as make sure the operation runs smoothly during the warranty period.

Next in line is Wärtsilä. The company is set to deliver a 100 MW Smart Power Generation plant to the so-called Senayan Diesel Power Plant project, which will ensure back-up power to the mass rapid transport system currently under construction in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Wärtsilä’s expertise in smart power generation will also be deployed Stateside, in Benndale, Mississippi, where it will deliver a 22.7 MW Smart Power Generation plant to Cooperative Energy. The order includes two gas-fired Wärtsilä 31SG engines, a first order for Wärtsilä’s new hallmark engines, which will provide grid support and a reliable power supply during potential transmission outages caused by severe weather conditions.

Lastly, Valmet will help save energy at the Nyagangazpererabotka’s gas compressing process located in the Russian city of Nyagan, Western Siberia, by supplying anti-surge and load-sharing control for the plant’s gas compressor machines.
