The plants will be supplied by Wärtsilä and both will run on three of the Finnish company’s 34SG engines.
The equipment will be delivered later this year and the new plants are scheduled to be fully operational in early 2017.
The plants will supply power to Meghna Group, one of the leading business conglomerates in Bangladesh that produces goods and food products in the Meghnaghat Industrial Park, on the outskirts of Dhaka.
Luthfur Rahman, general manager of power plants at Meghna Group, said: “With the equipment from Wärtsilä we can have higher availability and reliability of our power plants, and we can ensure an uninterrupted power supply for our industry.”
Rahman added that “the high availability of the Wärtsilä plants will help to keep the production running, even when the power plants are undergoing maintenance”, as the multi-unit configuration allows sequential maintenance of one unit at a time.
Wärtsilä has installed almost 2000 MW of capacity in Bangladesh in the last five years.
