Wärtsilä will supply Oil India Limited (OIL) with a 30 MW power plant to be delivered under a engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract and is targeted for commissioning by November 2022.
The plant, located at Duliajan in Assam,will be the main source of power for OIL’s facility at Duliajan, which does not have connection to the grid. It caters power to liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) bottling cum extraction facility, gas gathering station, the entire OIL township and other critical loads. Wärtsilä won this project through international competitive bidding (ICB) process. The plant will operate with three Wärtsilä W20V34SG gas engines running on natural gas fuel from OIL’s captive gas fields.
