The 47 MW UniCem power plant is capable of operating on either natural gas or heavy fuel oil and is powered by three Wärtsilä 50DF dual-fuel engines.

Through close co-operation with the customer, Wartsila has customized a complete service program that will offer UniCem the level of support that best suits its needs.

“This service agreement extension is important for Wärtsilä as it indicates the good co-operation between the two parties, and UniCem’s overall satisfaction with Wärtsilä’s performance,” says A.P. Singh, General Manager, Wartsila Solutions Support Services, South Europe & Africa.
