The government of Myanmar has ordered two fast-track power plants to try to put an end to large-scale blackouts.
Renewable energy will become the new base load and Wärtsilä is enabling the sector to meet demands for reliability and flexibility.
Energy technology group Wärtsilä is to provide €500,000 in seed funding to Soletair Power, a Finland based startup operating in the field of Power-to-X.
“In five years’ time, it will be a half a billion-dollar business for Wartsila,” says Frederic Carron, regional director of sales for South East Asia & Australia.
Finnish group Wartsila is poised to build what will be the largest solar photovoltaic plant in Nigeria – and one of the biggest in Africa.
Finland’s Wärtsilä has been contracted to supply the engines for a new 220 MW baseload power plant in Bangladesh.
