Wärtsilä will supply a 50 MW smart power generation power
plant to the Marquette Board of Light and Power (MBLP) in Michigan, USA.
The contract involves three 50Df dual-fuel engines running
primarily on natural gas, with light fuel oil as a back-up.
The equipment will be delivered in the autumn of 2016 and
the plant is scheduled to be fully operational in early 2017.
“Wärtsilä’s solution is reliable, efficient, flexible in
fuel choice, and is also environmentally sustainable. It will support our compliance
with upcoming CO2regulations,” says Paul Kitti, the Executive
Director of MBLP.
