Wartsila extends O&M pact with Pakistan's Sindh Nooriabad Power
Finnish technology company Wartsila on January 9 announced the extension of its operation and maintenance agreement with Pakistan's Sindh Nooriabad Power Company (SNPC) for an additional 12 years.
The agreement covers the SNPC 1 and 2 power plants situated in Sindh Province, Pakistan, both equipped with five Wartsila 34SG gas engines and one steam turbine generator for engine heat recovery, boasting a combined output of 100 MW.
As the first Independent Power Producer (IPP) established through a public-private partnership in Pakistan, SNPC holds a 25-year power purchasing agreement, with 19 years remaining. Notably, these power plants operate on local gas, contributing to reduced fuel costs.
Wartsila, a key player in the global energy sector, has established a robust presence in Pakistan with an installed base of 2.3 GW in power plants, of which 910 MW are covered by service agreements.
