Antigua Power Company + Wärtsilä

Wärtsilä Online enables effective lifecycle solutions for power plants in Caribbean

Antigua Power Company enhanced their spare parts handling process and troubleshooting by using Wärtsilä Online. The customer can already see clear benefits such as possibility to quickly check availability and prices of spare parts, which caters for an efficient maintenance planning. It is also a clear time saver for the plant operators, who can connect directly to Wärtsilä’s technical knowledge base to get answers.

The Antigua Power Company (APC) is an independent power producer and supplier of electricity in Antigua and Barbuda. APC supplies approximately
80% of the power generated in Antigua and Barbuda. The electricity is sold to APUA (Antigua Public Utilities Authority)through a power purchase agreement (PPA).

For APC, it is essential that their power plants are up and running 24/7. The residential areas of almost an entire country depend on the electricity the power plants produce by means of two Wärtsilä 18V32 engines, two Wärtsilä VASA18V32, three Wärtsilä 12V46 engines and one Wärtsilä 18V46 engine, providing a combined total power output of 78.5 MW.
