The Pezu facility is operating with 10 Wärtsilä dual-fuel engines.
Finnish technology group Wärtsilä has sealed a deal with Pakistani cement producer and exporter Lucky Cement to supply Lucky Cement’s Pezu combined cycle power plant in Pakistan with additional engine generating sets.
The Pezu facility, located in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, has been operating with 10 Wärtsilä dual-fuel engines, providing the electricity needed for operations.
“With new cement lines installed, an additional three Wärtsilä 34DF dual-fuel engines, each with an output of 10 MW, have been ordered to provide the additional power required for the power plant without grid connection,” Wärtsilä said.
The engines were discretely ordered in April, August, and November this year.
“In addition to the engines, the Wärtsilä scope includes waste heat recovery boilers needed to produce the steam, which in turn will power the steam turbines for electricity generation in combined cycle mode,” Wärtsilä added.
The first engine is being delivered this month and is expected to be fully operational by January 2021. Meanwhile, the two remaining engines will be transferred by March 2021, and will be fully operational in May 2021.
