    The Jordanian IPP3 power plant serves as a great example of outstanding collaboration and compromise: the cooperation between Wärtsilä and affiliates has allowed for a competitive EPC price for the plant, an efficient bidding process and a shorter gestation period from start to finish. The first 16 peak load-bearing engines were operational in as little as 16 months, while the entire plant was up-and-running in no more than 24 months.

    With the Arun power plant project in Indonesia, Wärtsilä worked closely with Finnvera and Standard Chartered Bank to arrange financing through export credits and to secure a loan agreement at attractive interest rates. Wärtsilä’s support in arranging financing has also helped to expedite the project: Arun is being built on a fast-track basis of around 18 months from contract signing to full commissioning.
