Finland-based manufacturer Wärtsilä Corporation has signed a contract for the development of the 130 MW Malicounda flexicycle power plant in Mbour, Senegal. Wärtsilä will be responsible for engineering, manufacture and delivery of the plant, which will be based on gas, multi-fuel technology combined with a steam turbine. The Malicounda power project, which will become operational in 2020, will be able to operate both in the highly efficient combined cycle mode and in the dynamic and fast simple cycle mode. In a separate development, Wärtsilä has also won a contract from HF Power for setting up a 113 MW power plant in Chowmuhoni, Bangladesh. As per the order, Wärtsilä will deliver 32 engines for the plant that operate on heavy fuel oil. The delivery of engines is scheduled in October 2018.
