Wärtsilä to optimize power plant performance in Timor-Leste

Wärtsilä takes full responsibility for power plant operation and maintenance to ensure safe, efficient and reliable availability of electricity.

Wärtsilä, a global leader in complete lifecycle solutions for the marine and energy markets has in November 2015 signed a five-year operations and maintenance (O&M) agreement with the Special Administrative Region of Oecusse for the Inur Sakato power plant in the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste. The partnership optimises the power plant's performance and lifecycle. The O&M agreement reduces the plant's operating costs and improves financial predictability and risk management. In addition, Wärtsilä will train the plant's employees.

Wärtsilä takes full responsibility for plant operation and maintenance to ensure safe, efficient and reliable availability of electricity. A Wärtsilä O&M agreement provides comprehensive asset management to meet the customer need for operational, management and maintenance services and performance guarantees.

The Inur Sakato power plant is one of the first established infrastructures in Timor-Leste. The 17.3 MW power plant is the main power source for the entire Oecusse district. The Inur Sakato plant is powered by four Wärtsilä 34DF engines.

The dual-fuel Inur Sakato plant will run on light fuel oil but may be converted to natural gas later on.
