The $80m contract fo Wartsila wins Argentina $80m dual-fuel plant deal r the Central Termica Pilar plant includes six Wärtsilä 50DF engines running on gas and heavy fuel oil.

The order is one of five contracts that Wärtsilä was recently awarded in Argentina and the plant is expected to be delivered early next year and be operational by the summer.

Wärtsilä's scope of supply for the project with Albares Renovables has been extended from equipment delivery only to a full turn-key project.
