Wärtsilä Signs Maintenance Contract With Nigeria’s Paras Energy
Finnish power technology company Wärtsilä has signed a five-year Optimized Maintenance Agreement to increase the production capacity of power plants in three locations owned by Paras Energy, a privately-owned Nigerian energy provider.
In addition to increasing plant capacity, the five-year agreement will improve availability and quality of products, and serve as a measure for cost calculation for future budgeting.
Connected to the national grid, the powerplants are operated with Wärtsilä 34SG gas-fuelled engines that generate a combined total of 132 MW and provide energy for approximately 20,300 Nigerian households.
“We have worked successfully with Wärtsilä for twelve years, during which time we have developed a strong spirit of mutual respect and trust,” said Yashwant Kumar, Managing Director, Paras Energy. “Until now, we have managed and maintained these plants ourselves, but as we grow and expand our operations, we are convinced that Wärtsilä’s professional approach will provide the support needed as we develop our core business.”
