Wärtsilä wins four power contacts in Bangladesh

Wärtsilä, a supplier of decentralised power plant solutions, has received four orders to supply power plants to customers in Bangladesh, adding more than 300MW of generating capacity to the national grid.

The four orders were signed in July and August this year, and their combined value exceeds €100m (£82m).

These latest orders are in addition to contracts for six power plants awarded to Wärtsilä during the second quarter of this year.

All are part of the government of Bangladesh’s urgent plan established to deal with the power shortage that the country is currently experiencing.
