Wärtsilä to supply 15.5 MW captive power plant to TPL

Wärtsilä to supply 15.5 MW captive power plant to TPL

The technology group Wärtsilä will supply a gas-fuelled 15.5 MW captive power plant under an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract along with a 5-year Operation & Maintenance (O&M) agreement in Chennai,Tamilnadu, India. 

TPL order 

The order was placed by M/s Tamilnadu Petroproducts Limited (TPL), the world-class heavy chemicals and Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB) manufacturer, part of AM International, Singapore. The order for these two Wärtsilä 34SG gas engines follows TPL’s decision to shift power generation from heavy fuel oil (HFO) operation to cleaner and more efficient natural gas-based alternatives. This transition towards greener alternatives is vital for TPL to reduce its carbon footprint and to render its support towards the Tamilnadu Pollution Control Board’s (TNPCB’s) efforts towards reducing pollution in the Manali area. 

The project has been made possible by the commissioning of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal at Ennore, India that enables gas to be piped to the site, according to a communication from the company.
