Wärtsilä will supply a 47 MW Smart Power Generation power plant to Rochester Public Utilities (RPU) in Minnesota, USA. The order includes five Wärtsilä 34SG engines running on natural gas. The equipment will be delivered in the autumn of 2017, and the plant is expected to be fully operational in May 2018.

“Wärtsilä engines are an important piece of RPU’s diversified portfolio which also includes various forms of renewable generation. This facility will help meet RPU’s capacity obligation with the reliability and reduced emissions of a natural gas powered plant. Compared to the aged coal and gas turbine based capacity it will replace, the power plant will nearly double the efficiency and reduce hourly carbon emissions by 50 percent,” says Walter Schlink, Director of Power Resources at RPU.
