Gas power contract awarded in Timor

Wärtsilä, has been awarded a full scope, long-term operations and maintenance (O&M) agreement for the Hera power plant located in Dili, in the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste.

In a consortium with Puri Akraya Engineering, Wärtsilä will be responsible for operating the power plant, and for all service and maintenance activities deemed necessary to ensure its efficient and reliable availability.

The Hera plant supplies base load electricity to the national grid and has an output capacity of 120 MW. It is powered by seven Wärtsilä 46 engines currently running on light fuel oil, but which may later be converted to natural gas operation.

"In addition to the fact that Wärtsilä is the original equipment manufacturer,  Wärtsilä's extensive experience in operating and maintaining power plants that utilise the latest in efficient technology, was the determining factor in the company being awarded this O&M agreement," comments Mr Dany Subrata, Director of Puri Akraya Engineering Ltd.
