Ensuring optimal operation of Colombian gas power plant



Wärtsilä will ensure the efficiency and reliability of Termo Mechero Morro’s power plant in Colombia. The seven-year operation and maintenance (O&M) agreement includes performance guarantees and optimises the commercial operations of the gas-powered El Morro plant. The agreement expands on an earlier construction contract (EPC) and includes performance guarantees for the gas-powered plant, which began production in December 2017. The company will provide full operation and maintenance services, including personnel and spare parts. It also guarantees the efficiency, reliability, and availability of the power plant while the customer sells the produced energy on the local electricity market. The company’s advanced digital solutions will be applied in the plant to ensure optimal operations: the plant equipment will be remotely monitored and its maintenance needs will be optimised based on the actual condition. El Morro is a baseload power plant equipped with six Wärtsilä 34SG gas engines for an installed capacity of 55 MW.
