The technology group Wartsila has signed a 5-year agreement with Technomen Kinetics Private Limited (TKL) for the operation and maintenance of two gas power plants in Pakistan, ensuring the performance, availability and uptime of the two identical plants. The agreement further reinforces Wartsila’s strong presence in Pakistan where Wartsila has an installed base of 2.2 GW in power plants, with 600 MW of power production under service agreements.

The agreement, signed in February 2017, is a full Operations & Maintenance agreement (O&M) according to which Wartsila will operate and maintain the two power plants to optimise their performance and production lifecycle. The 5-year agreement includes expertise areas such as technical support, maintenance planning, performance monitoring, recruitment, management and training of local personnel, and logistics management. The scope covers digital Wartsila Genius services, including remote monitoring of the two power plants from a Wartsila service centre for real-time data gathering and analysis.

“TKL valued our strong presence in Pakistan. With our digital services, including remote monitoring, we can guarantee the optimal performance of TKL’s plants at all times,” says Rashid Islam, General Manager, Services & Sales, Wartsila Pakistan.

The two identical power plants are situated in Nooriabad, near Karachi. The plants operate as independent power producers (IPP) that generate electric power for utilities and end users. Each plant is equipped with five Wartsila 34SG gas engine generator sets and one steam turbine generator for engine heat recovery, which ensures maximum electricity output. The gas power plants use natural gas in the most economical way, as the Wartsila 34SG gas engines are efficient at any load and can be flexibly started and stopped according to electricity demand. In addition, emissions from gas engines are low, which reduces the environmental footprint of the plants.

Technomen Kinetics Private Limited is part of Technomen Group, a conglomerate with a focus on engineering. Having started as a construction company, the group has diversified into the field of power generation.

“Wartsila has a proven track record in the operation and maintenance as well as extensive know-how in gas engine maintenance. These factors make them a trusted partner for us. Keeping the equipment operational at all times is critical for us, as it allows the economical operation of the two plants,” says Saiyed Asif Mahmood, Chief Executive Officer, Technomen Kinetics Private Limited.
