The Kenyan Independent Power producer, Gulf Power Limited (GPL), entered the energy market in 2009 with the sole intension of selling power. As such, they signed an Operations & Maintenance (O&M) agreement with Wärtsilä Eastern Africa Ltd.
The tailor-made O&M contract was a result of a natural process and the team to operate and maintain the power plant was assigned locally from Wärtsilä Eastern Africa. The plant provides base load power to the national grid of Kenya.
