Mexico is quickly amending its energy laws, creating a new electricity market and allowing the private sector to participate freely in the generation and sale of electricity. The new strategy targets private and international investors, thus changing the market situation. The new regulations pave way for independent power producer (IPP) projects that will help the Mexican energy sector to not only cover the national demand, but also export electricity to its neighbouring countries.Read more
The McArthur River Mine in Australia, is one of the world’s largest providers of zinc in bulk concentrate form. Global energy producer EDL is responsible for supplying power to the mine. Wärtsilä has been a trusted partner for EDL for many years now, delivering gas engines and providing lifecycle services for condition-based maintenance to the power plant. The end result is better fuel efficiency, a low levelised cost of electricity, lower OPEX and guaranteed availability.Read more
The state of California is known for its amazing nature and climate. Being home to beautiful beaches, sandy deserts and redwood forests alike, it is hard to find a corner of the planet with comparable natural and climatic diversity. It’s certainly called the Golden State for a reason! But to keep it golden, its inhabitants and regulators are very aware that its fate cannot be left to chance. Climate change is a real threat, and biological degradation could pose a serious risk to an agricultural region that feeds well over 100 million people.Read more

The Grande Côte Mineral Sands Project aims to extract valuable zircon and titanium dioxide from sandy deposits along the Senegalese coast from 2014 for at least the next 20 years.Read more
"Our old generating equipment was replaced with more efficient units. New power plant technology is used to meet increased demand for electricity. Gas-engine technology allows us to reduce our carbon footprint by more than 40%."Read more
The Kipevu II project started in 1996 when the Government of Kenya embarked on a series of major policy reforms, including private sector investments. This resulted in the Government of Kenya issuing an international tender for a power generating station in Mombasa known as Kipevu II. In November 1996, Wärtsilä Development & Financial Services, Inc. (WDFS) submitted a proposal in response to the tender and the contract for developing the Kipevu II project was awarded to WDFS in 1997.Read more
Wärtsilä supplied a 116 MW gas power plant for the Canadian gold mining company Barrick Goldstrike Mines Inc.'s mine project in Nevada, USA.

This power plant utilises naturally occurring methane gas from Lake Kivu to generate electricity via Wärtsilä 34SG engines. Total output will be 25 MW. By reducing gas levels in the lake while, at the same time, providing additional power generating capacity, both environmental and economic targets can be met. This is the first time that Lake Kivu’s methane gas will be used to fuel a power plant of this size.Read more
THE WIND ENABLER RETURNS TO TEXAS The Golden Spread Electric Cooperative debated different back-up power alternatives for addressing the challenges associated with their high proportion of intermittent wind-driven generating capacity. Agricultural irrigation with its heavily varying demand for electricity further increased the flexibility demands on the wind-following plant.
