Helsinki-based manufacturing company Wärtsilä has received an order for the delivery of engines for a 128 MW power plant project under the development of WEC Energy Group in the USA.

The delivery consists of seven Wärtsilä 50SG gas engines that operate with natural gas fuel. The engines will be part of a modern, low-carbon natural gas energy facility that will serve customers of WEC Energy Group utilities, We Energies, and Wisconsin Public Service in Wisconsin, USA.

“WEC Energy Group is a company with unmatched operational expertise. They know it’s all about reliability, flexibility, and efficiency, and we are proud to have been chosen as their engine supplier for the third time,” added Jon Rodriguez, Director, Engine power plants, Wärtsilä Energy in North America. “Wärtsilä is helping to create a carbon-neutral world for electricity providers and the Wärtsilä 50SG engine is a hallmark of that future-proof design. With the ability to convert the engine to run on various fuels including hydrogen blends, the Wärtsilä 50SG will be able to support the reliability and flexibility demands of our client now and well into the future.”

The fast-starting and stopping Wärtsilä engines have the ability to quickly respond to the inherent fluctuations from solar and wind, and will thus provide the necessary grid balancing for a reliable power supply for Wisconsin’s electric grid.

The delivery of the Wärtsilä engines will take place in October 2022, and the commissioning of the plant is scheduled for March 2023. WEC Energy Group has earlier ordered Wärtsilä engines for two other power plant projects, with a total output of 188 MW.
