Wärtsilä partners with Nigeria in dual-fuelled engine power plant


- Advertisment -

Mainly, the 48 MW plant has been ordered by the BUA Group, following the decision to construct a new cement line in Sokoto, in northwest Nigeria. The engineering and equipment order with Wärtsilä was booked in Q1 2019.

Moreover, the plant will operate without being connected to grid, and in the meantime will provide the power that is needed to serve the new cement line number 3 at the Sokoto cement production facility.

The plant will operate on five Wärtsilä 34DF dual-fuel engines running primarily on liquified natural gas (LNG), but with the capability to switch to low pour fuel oil (LPFO) if necessary.

In light of the new partnership, Executive Chairman and CEO of the BUA Group, Abdul Samad Rabiu, stated

We can’t compromise on quality. We are known to provide quality products and services, and we recognise that Wärtsilä aligns with this vision of ours. They have an impeccable track record and can be relied on to deliver as promised.

Concluding, the contract between Wärtsilä and BUA Group was signed by Magnus Miemois, Regional Director, Wärtsilä Energy Business, and Abdul Samad Rabiu, Executive Chairman and CEO of the BUA Group.
