Wartsila to build Saudi power plant.

Wärtsilä has received an order from Umm Al-Qura Cement Company to supply a turnkey power plant for Saudi Arabia.

The 47 MW captive power plant will be located in the mountain desert close to Taif city. The equipment will be fast-track delivered by February 2015 and the project will enter commercial operation by October 2015.

The power plant will serve a cement factory in extreme conditions of temperatures up to 50 degrees Celsius and an altitude above 1,000 metres.

It consists of five 20-cylinder Wärtsilä 32TS engines, a new 2-stage turbocharged version of the market-leading Wärtsilä 32 series. The new engine is designed to operate at outstanding efficiency even in extreme ambient conditions, such as high ambient temperatures and high altitudes.
