Implementing global solutions locally

In 2010, Wärtsilä signed a contract to supply and install the largest gas engine power plant ever to be installed on the African continent.

The power plant will be delivered as a turnkey project and it will be delivered by the end of 2011. The power plant will be located in Kribi a sea port lying on the Gulf of Guinea coast in the Republic of Cameroon. It is estimated that the construction of the power plant will create more than 500 jobs for local workers, and its operation will require the training of more than 60 skilled workers. The Kribi project will bring the total power output supplied by Wärtsilä engines in Cameroon to nearly 450 MW.
