Wärt­silä to sup­ply 73 MW ex­ten­sion for Turk­ish plant


Wärt­silä will sup­ply 73 MW ca­pac­ity equip­ment for an ex­ten­sion to a power plant owned by Yesi­lyurt En­erji Elek­trik Ure­tim AS an in­de­pen­dent power pro­ducer (IPP) in Turkey. The equip­ment will be de­liv­ered dur­ing the com­ing months, and the ex­tended power plant is sched­uled to be op­er­a­tional by De­cem­ber 2017. Wärt­silä’s scope is the equip­ment sup­ply. The or­der was booked in the first quar­ter of 2017. The or­der com­prises four Wärt­silä 50 SG en­gines run­ning on nat­u­ral gas. This fast-track de­liv­ery is for the ex­ten­sion to an ex­ist­ing 128 MW Wärt­silä power plant built in 2011 in Sam­sun, on the Black Sea coast of Turkey. The ca­pac­ity of the plant was ex­tended to 145 MW in 2013, and was built to op­er­ate mainly in baseload mode to sup­ply re­li­able power to the grid. When this lat­est ex­ten­sion is com­pleted, it will mainly be for grid sta­bil­ity op­er­a­tions. The re­li­a­bil­ity of the Turk­ish power sys­tem is very much de­pen­dent on hav­ing suf­fi­cient flex­i­ble power avail­able for grid sta­bil­ity.
