Published: 22 December 2014


Wärtsilä has been contracted to supply power plants for 11 cement factories of Eurocement Group in Russia. The project is part of a modernisation program of the factories which focuses on energy
efficiency and environmental upgrading. Eurocement Group, making up almost 40 per cent of the Russian cement market, is one of the largest cement producers in the world. The contract was signed in November 2014.
 
 "Eurocement Group modernisation program is based on energy efficiency and best international practice. Wärtsilä's solutions will allow us to create high technology cement industry in Russia and provide national infrastructure and housing projects with high quality cement," says President of the company Mikhail Skorokhod.
 
The full equipment delivery order consists of 36 natural gas-fired Wärtsilä 34SG engines. The size of the industrial power plants varies from 2-5 engines, or from 19MW to 48MW. The combined capacity
of the power plants will be 314MW. The plants will produce electricity for the cement factory and work in parallel with the grid. All projects are scheduled to be fast-track-delivered during 2015.
