Wärtsilä Receives Three Contracts For Brazil Power Plants

Posted on October 15, 2010

Wärtsilä has received three operations and maintenance (O&M) contracts for power plants in Brazil.

Borborema Energética S.A. has contracted Wärtsilä to operate, maintain and supply all labor and spare parts for its Campina Grande power plant in Paraiba, Brazil. The plant runs on heavy fuel oil and generates 164 MW of electrical output from 20 Wärtsilä 20V32 engines for the national grid.

A second O&M contract was provided by Maracanaú Geradora de Energia for its power plant located in Ceará, Brazil. The plant’s 168 MW output is generated from eight Wärtsilä 20V46F engines running on heavy fuel oil, and also feeds the national grid. Both contracts are for five years with an option to extend for a further 5 years.

A third O&M agreement was signed with Linhares Geração S.A. for running and maintaining its 204 MW gas power plant. This power plant, located in Linhares, Espirito Santo, southwest of Brazil, comprises 24 Wärtsilä 20V34SG gas engines, with the power being used as standby for Brazil’s hydro generation. The contract is for two years with an option to extend for a further 3 years.
