Wärtsilä Italia has been awarded as Best Strategic Partner 2016 by Shanghai Electric Power Malta (SEPM), a Shanghai Electric Power company, one of the most important energy companies in China and owner of  D3 Power Plant in Delimara Power Station.

In December 2014 Wärtsilä Corporation signed an important agreement with Shanghai Electric Power for the conversion of the plant to operate on natural gas, which has resulted in reducing emissions and complying with regulations set by the EU. 

The project, started in March 2016, is about to be finalized, while Wärtsilä Italia has signed a 5 years Maintenance Agreement, effective from September 2016, and is completing two important extra activities called "Reset to = 0", to accomplish the gas conversion of the plant.

Thanks to these services SEPM has decided to award Wärtsilä Italia with the aim to recognize the efficiency shown during the implementation of these activities.

“In 2016, D3PG signed the CSA agreement with Wartsila Italy, starting the five-year commitment and cooperation. During the contract period, Wartsila Italy will be responsible for the maintenance of the combustion engines. With the proven professionalism and reliability of Wartsila Italy, we are looking forward to a partnership with mutual trust under CSA and beyond,“ affirmed Chen Zhichao, CEO D3 Power Generation.

The prize was withdrawn, during a ceremony held in Malta, by Flavio Borsarelli, General Manager Sales Service Unit Wärtsilä Italia and Sosio Limatola, Branch Manager Malta, Services Unit Wärtsilä Italia.

"We are very pleased to have received this award from a prestigious company such as Shanghai Electric Power," affirmed Patrick Borstner, Director Services Unit at Wärtsilä Italia. "The collaboration between our company and Shanghai Electric Power started in 2014 and three years later has been strengthened to become extremely strategic, demonstrating the reliability and competence of our solutions and people working in Wärtsilä."
