Sasolburg, South Africa
175 MW of newly installed power, one million ton cut in yearly carbon emissions, high energy efficiency and flexibility, fast-track turnkey delivery including the possibility for future expansions and compliancy with one of the world’s strictest Health, Safety and Environmental regulations at all times. All of this in the challenging location of Sasolburg, South Africa, 1700 meters above sea level. This was Sasol New Energy's (SNE) wish list for Christmas 2012. Impossible? Not when relying on Wärtsilä capabilities and expertise. Actually, Christmas came early for SNE, since the landmark project was completed on 14 December 2012, 9 days ahead of schedule, within budget.
