Wartsila to Supply 22 MW Power Plant to Morocco

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 8/7/2017, Location: Africa

Wartsila is to supply a 22 MW baseload power plant to Morocco’s state utility under an EPC contract. The power plant consists of two Wartsila 46 engines, operating on heavy fuel oil with the capability to use light fuel oil as a back-up.

This order is booked in Q2 2017. The equipment will be delivered in early 2018, and the plant is expected to be fully operational in January 2019.

The main evaluation criterion for the project was the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) during an operating period of 20 years. LCOE measures the operating period costs divided by the energy produced.

With this new power plant, Wartsila will now have an installed base of 189 MW in Morocco, the total installed base in Africa being 6 GW.
