Wärtsilä has signed a contract to engineer, manufacture and deliver a 130 MW Flexicycle plant in Senegal for Matelec. Matelec is building the Malicounda power plant under contract to Melec Power Gen (MPG), and independent power producer (IPP). Located in Mbour, 85 km from Dakar, the Malicounda facility will boost power generation supplies in Senegal and is due to start operating in 2020. Wärtsilä’s Flexicycle power plants combine a gas, multi-fuel, or liquid fuel power plant with a steam turbine. They can operate both in highly efficient combined cycle mode and in dynamic and fast simple cycle mode.
