Wärtsilä has secured a €75m contract from Argentinean power company Pampa Energía to supply a 101MW Smart Power Generation plant.

As part of the contract, Wärtsilä will be offering a turnkey solution, including an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) service. Wärtsilä will also deliver its 50DF multi-fuel engines, which run on natural gas and heavy-fuel oil (HFO) as a back-up fuel.

The power plant is expected to be completed and commencing commercial operations by December, 2017.

“We are also happy to see that our technology is recognised as an enabler of renewable energy in Argentina.”

Wärtsilä’s business development manager Gaston Giani said: “Our long-lasting relationship with Pampa Energía continues with this project. We are also happy to see that our technology is recognised as an enabler of renewable energy in Argentina.”

The project is the sixth awarded to Wärtsilä in Argentina this year and also the second project with Pampa Energía.
