Wärtsilä to deliver two power plants for distributed generation in Oman

27 April 2015

Wärtsilä has received orders to supply two 'Smart Power' generation power plants for Rural Areas Electricity Company in Oman. The two plants, with a combined capacity of 104 MW, will supply electricity to rural areas in Southeastern Oman, outside the national grid. They will be operating in extreme temperature conditions of up to 52°C.
The larger of the two plants will be located on the island of Masirah on Oman's Eastern coast and will consist of seven Wärtsilä 32 engines, having a combined output of 56 MW. The other, to be located in Saih Al Khairat, will have six type 32 engines with a total output of 48 MW. Both units will be operated using light fuel oil and are scheduled to be operational in 2016.
Wärtsilä recently announced a 120 MW distributed power generation project in the Musandam governorate of Northern Oman.
