Wärtsilä has concluded a number of significant long-term operation & maintenance (O&M) agreements.
At the beginning of June, Wärtsilä and PT Antam Tbk (Antam), an internationally-listed, diversified Indonesian mining and metals company, signed an eleven-year O&M agreement covering the operation and maintenance of a 152 MW power plant supplying the energy needs of the Pomalaa nickel facility in Southeast-Sulawesi. This agreement, under which Wärtsilä is responsible for the operation, predictive maintenance and spare parts for the power plant, marks a major breakthrough for Wärtsilä in the mining sector and, in terms of megawatts, is the second largest O&M agreement ever concluded by Wärtsilä.
In May Wärtsilä made five power plant O&M agreements, totalling 90 MW. Wärtsilä’s O&M agreements currently cover over 2,500 MW, or 140 power plants around the world. Approximately 40% of all new orders for Wärtsilä power plants also include an O&M agreement.
