Case study: power plants


Courtesy of Watman Ltd.

Wärtsilä power plant portfolio includes baseload, cogeneration, load management and gas compression applications – anything from floating barge power stations to decentralised units suitable for urban areas. High efficiency, fuel flexibility and modular design allow for truly competitive power production anywhere in the world. Supported by a complete range of services, the customers are provided with profitable solutions from a total energy supplier.

Towards decentralised energy. The energy business is undergoing major changes. The large, centralised power plant with widespread transmission systems is being replaced with small, decentralised cogeneration plants. Decentralised plants account for about 40% of all new power plants delivered worldwide. It makes good economical sense to put the energy production exactly where it's needed. Bringing the plant closer to the energy consumers reduces transmission costs, while using heat locally increases the overall plant efficiency.

Wärtsilä power plants are ideal for decentralised power. They fit in the surrounding environment and generate a minimum of noise. With cogeneration – or combined heat and power – the overall efficiency is high, which is also the best means of limiting carbon dioxide emissions. Overall, Wärtsilä provides the most advanced solutions for decentralised energy production at a highly competitive cost.

R&D today is focusing on environmental issues. Since the mid-1980s Wärtsilä has spent more than 100 million euro on developing technologies that reduce exhaust gas emissions. Significant results have been achieved, and development is now more intense than ever.

Many customers today want to stay ahead of environmental legislation and Wärtsilä has taken up the challenge to support its customers’ desires to gear themselves towards sustainable technology.
