The preparatory activities to start construction of the 300MWe multi-fuelled power plant in Sangachal are continuing to progress, Azerenergy officer Nazim Hajiyev told APA-Economics.
He said the plant will be installed by Wartsila Corporation which has carried out a number of power-station projects in Azerbaijan.
Azerenergy had ordered five power plants, all based on multiple Wärtsilä 34SG gas-engined generating sets. The power plants, located in (87MWe) Astara, Khachmaz, Nakhchivan and Sheki, have all been commissioned during 2006.
In addition, Wärtsilä Corporation was in December 2006, awarded a contract by Azerenergy, to deliver a multi-fuelled generating plant for a 300MWe power plant to be located at Sangachal, 50 km south of the capital Baku. The plant will be equipped with 18 generating sets each powered by an 18-cylinder Wärtsilä 50DF engine, delivering 17 MW. Wärtsilä will also deliver the power plant design, other principal equipment and all building materials, while undertaking supervision of the building and equipment installation. The Wärtsilä 50DF engines give the plant considerable fuel flexibility. The engines can run on heavy and light oil and natural gas. Shifting from one fuel to another takes 30 minutes. The engines will deliver the same power on all three fuels.
The plant is scheduled to be fully operational in autumn, 2008. /APA-Economics/
