The technology group Wartsila has signed a specially tailored optimised maintenance agreement covering the Electricite du Cambodge (EDC) C7 power plant, located close to Phnom Penh in Cambodia. The agreement is with SchneiTec, the company responsible for the maintenance of the power plant. The order was booked by Wartsila in August 2020.

The aim of the five-year agreement is to support the availability, performance, and reliability of the 12 Wartsila 50DF dual-fuel engines that generate a total of 200 MW of output to the grid. Wartsila will supply high quality spare parts as needed while also providing maintenance planning, as well as remote asset diagnostics, guidance, and troubleshooting in the event of unplanned shutdowns or emergencies.

“We appreciate the support from Wartsila in optimising the maintenance of this plant. Being the engine supplier, Wartsila’s original equipment manufactured spare parts are sure to be fit-for-purpose without any risk of compromising either performance or reliability. The agreement also provides cost predictability, which is very important,” commented Tann Tourthang, General Manager, HFO/LNG division, SchneiTec Co.Ltd.

“Our remote services can help to monitor the engines’ running data, and identify possible anomalies. We can then provide proactive assistance to the site crew to ensure uninterrupted and smooth power generation to benefit SchneiTec, EDC and in the end the entire Cambodian society. This is an essential element within our lifecycle support approach. We will help to make this Wartsila power plant the role model power plant with the highest operation and maintenance standard in Cambodia,” said Nicolas Leong, Wärtsilä Energy Business Director, North and South East Asia.

The EDC C7 power plant is playing an important role in meeting Cambodia’s electricity shortage. The Wartsila engines also provide the fast-starting, load-balancing flexibility to deliver the needed grid stability as Cambodia continues to utilise an increasing share of renewable energy, in particular solar power. Renewable energy, complemented by the flexible power baseload power plant supplied by Wartsila, will ensure a stable power supply at the lowest levelized cost of energy.
