Finnish technology group Wärtsilä will supply equipment for a 55 MW combined heat and power plant to Solikamsk, Russia, in order to modernise the Solikamsk thermal power station. Wärtsilä’s scope covers an extended engineering and equipment delivery (EEQ), and includes Wärtsilä 50SG engines running on natural gas. The equipment will be delivered during 2017 and is scheduled to be operational by the end of 2018 after the modernisation of Solikamsk thermal power station has been completed. The order, valued at over 30 million euros, was booked in December 2016. The modernised power plant is located on the premises of Solikamskbumprom in Solikamsk, the Perm area in the Eastern part of Russia. The customer, Solikamskbumprom, is a leading Russian producer of pulp and paper specialising in newsprint paper. Some 70-80% of the production is exported. The additional electricity will power the process at the paper production facilities.
