Ordered by Sigma Powertech, the technology group Wärtsilä will supply a 40 MW power plant to provide a reliable and efficient electricity supply to Bangladesh’s Export Processing Zone (EPZ), located in Adamjee, close to Dhaka. With four Wärtsilä 34SG engines operating on natural gas fuel, the power plant is expected to encourage industrial investments in the zone, creating employment and future growth for the area.


“This is an important project for the region and the continued economic growth of Bangladesh through export enhancement as per the Government’s initiative. Growth throughout the industrial sector is very much dependent on having a reliable power supply, and the new power plant will provide this. Wärtsilä has an excellent reputation in this country with a strong presence to provide the support needed,” said Mohammad Moyeen, Chairman, Sigma Powertech Ltd.


Wärtsilä currently has 5,000 MW of installed capacity in Bangladesh with over 200 company personnel employed. This 40MW Adamjee project will be the fourth Bangladeshi EPZ project for which Wärtsilä has supplied, and Commissioning and commencement of operations are expected to happen next year.
