Wartsila wins Morocco power plant deal

Finnish technology group Wartsila has won a EPC contract to supply a 22 MW power plant to Morocco’s state utility.

The plant will run on two of Wartsila’s 46 heavy fuel oil engines which also have the capability to use light fuel oil as a back-up.

The equipment will be delivered early next year and the plant is expected to be fully operational in January 2019.

The growth in energy demand in Morocco is a result of improvements in the population’s access to a basic infrastructure, including electricity. 

Once the new plant is operatioal, Wartsila will have an installed base of 189 MW in Morocco.
