Operators reaching their true potential
The Wärtsilä Land & Sea Academy (WLSA) has training centres in 12 countries around the globe, which enables the delivery of all aspects of training to suit every kind of organisation. Among other areas, WLSA training covers the management, operation, maintenance, safety, availability, reliability and performance of installations. “For us, sharing the knowledge and competence to operate the plants through a long-term training programme, including on-the-job training, was a perfect solution,” says Mr Jerenimo.
According to Mr Jerenimo, the well-delivered training services will help EDTL to achieve its mission to respond to their clients’ demand for electrical power. “Since our local staff have also performed well, the mission will be guaranteed. As our local Timorese experts will gradually take over the operation and maintenance of the power plants, it will also reduce the costs in the Annual State Budget.”
“I believe that our cooperation with Wärtsilä will continue for a long time. They have great expertise in power plants and are also the OEM manufacturer of the engines. With this increased communication and motivation, the result will be close to perfection,” concludes Mr Jerenimo.
