Wärtsilä Oyj Abp: Wärtsilä to supply 100 MW power plant to Argentina

Wärtsilä Corporation, Press release, 30 August 2016 at 10 am EET

Wärtsilä will supply a 100 MW dual-fuel plant to Albares Renovables in
Argentina. The turn-key order includes six Wärtsilä 50DF dual-fuel engines
running on gas and heavy fuel oil. The order is one of five contracts that
Wärtsilä was recently awarded in Argentina. These orders were announced in a
stock exchange release in July.

Wärtsilä's scope of supply for the project with Albares Renovables has, after
negotiations, been extended from equipment delivery only to a full turn-key
project. The value of the order is now estimated to be EUR 72 million. The
plant is expected to be delivered in early 2017 and operational in August the
same year.

Natural gas is not available for the power market in Argentina all year round.
Therefore, Wärtsilä's high efficiency dual-fuel technology was chosen to
enable the power plant to run on heavy fuel oil for part of the year. When
installed, the Central Termica Pilar Power Plant will also recover all the
heat that is produced from the plant and make it available to nearby
companies, thereby improving their competitiveness.

"We selected the Wärtsilä technology at an early stage of the process because
of their dual-fuel experience and Wärtsilä's good reputation," says Enrique
Madrid, Technical Director at Albares Renovables.

He adds that it is a privilege to work together with Wärtsilä as they can
provide world-class technology and an experienced team.

"We are very pleased to cooperate with Albares Renovables on this project and
contribute to strengthening the national grid in Argentina," says Kent
Westergård, Sales Director at Wärtsilä in America.
