Eneo Cameroon’s Limbe power plant could generate only about 40% of the installed total capacity of 80MW. Wärtsilä’s solution was a complete rehabilitation; a total overhaul of four Wärtsilä 18V46 engines and five alternators. The overhaul covered all critical auxiliaries, including the replacement and upgrade of radiator systems, as well as other auxiliaries. This rehabilitation means clear operational savings for the customer.

“Prior to the rehabilitation project, each of the five engines had power derates of about 3-5MW. We definitely needed to improve the performance of the plant.”
Mr. John Louis Batoko, South Grid Thermal Plants Subdirector at Generation Eneo.
