Mauritius: Wärtsilä engines for St Louis rehabilitation
Finland’s Wärtsilä has won an order to supply a 67MW thermal power plant to replace diesel generating sets at the St Louis power station. The order is for four Wärtsilä 46 engines running on heavy fuel oil. The equipment will be delivered in late 2016, and the plant is scheduled to be operational by September 2017. Burmeister & Wain Scandinavian Contractor is the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for the project. The modernised power station will provide semi-baseload power, including daily starts and stops, to local residents and industries.
