Wärtsilä Oyj Abp: Wärtsilä delivers two power plants for distributed generation in Oman

Wärtsilä Corporation, Press release, 27 April 2015 at 9.30 am EET

Wärtsilä has received orders to supply two Smart Power Generation power plants
for Rural Areas Electricity Company (RAECO) in Oman. The power plants, with a
combined capacity of 104 MW, will supply electricity to rural areas in
Southeastern Oman, outside the national grid. The power stations will operate
in extreme conditions of up to 52 Celsius degrees.

The larger of the two power plants will be located on the island of Masirah on
Oman's Eastern coast. The Masirah plant will consist of seven Wärtsilä 32
engines, having a combined output of 56 MW. The other power plant, to be
located in Saih Al Khairat, will have six Wärtsilä 32 engines with a total
output of 48 MW. Both units will be operated using light fuel oil and are
scheduled to be operational in 2016.

"These projects support our strategy of providing reliable distributed
capacity with Smart Power Generation technology. They also illustrate our
performance in hot and dry conditions," said Lars-Åke Kjell, Regional
Director of Wärtsilä Power Plants. Wärtsilä's internal combustion engines
maintain high efficiency in extreme temperatures, and their water consumption
is negligible.

Wärtsilä recently announced a 120 MW distributed power generation project in
the Musandam governorate of Northern Oman.

The Masirah contract was included in Wärtsilä's order intake in Q4 2014,
whereas Saif al Khairat was booked in Q3 2014. Wärtsilä's total installed
capacity in the Middle East is approximately 7000 MW.
