MWM recently completed shipment of 15 gas gen-sets, each with an output of 4 MW, to Bangladesh. The engines were purchased by Precision Energy Ltd. and are being installed at a power plant in Ashugong, Bangladesh that will ultimately generate 60 MW of power all of which will be fed into the public grid.
The project was rolled out with Kaltimex Energy Pvt Ltd. from Dhaka, Bangladesh who, according to MWM, has already implemented numerous projects. The commerical launch of the new power plant is scheduled for the first half of 2010.
MWM’s TCG 2016, 2020 and 2032 engines, which deliver outputs of 300 to 4300 kW, are marketed in Asia by the company’s subsidiary, MWM Asia Pacific Ltd. in Singapore. This location provides service and spare parts to the entire Asia Pacific region.
Demand for electricity has grown to 5200 MW compared to 4000 MW currently produced. Investments worth US$15 billion are needed by 2020 in order to prevent the power industry from becoming an impediment to the country’s development. The company recently opened an office in Korea.
