Wärtsilä Oyj Abp: Wärtsilä to supply 40 MW power plant to Tanzania

Wärtsilä Corporation, Press release, 16 December 2016 at 10 am EET

Wärtsilä will supply a 40 MW Smart Power Generation plant to Geita Gold Mining
Limited in Tanzania. The turn-key engineering, procurement and construction
(EPC) order includes four Wärtsilä 32TS engines running on heavy or light
fuel oil. The plant is expected to be operational during the first quarter of
2018. The order is included in Wärtsilä's order book for the fourth quarter
of 2016.

The power plant will provide a reliable electricity supply to the Geita gold
mine, located in the Lake Victoria goldfields of the Mwanza region in
north-western Tanzania. Being off-grid means that the mine needs to secure
its own power supply and Wärtsilä's technology fits the need very well. Since
the mine needs to remain operational at all times, the reliability, high
efficiency, and quality of the Wärtsilä solution were key factors in the
award of the contract. Additionally, Wärtsilä has a strong track-record of
EPC projects in various locations in Africa.

The Wärtsilä 32TS engines are two-staged turbocharged, making them ideally
suited for tough operating environments, such as the high elevation location
of the Geita mine. "Our two-stage turbocharged 32TS engines are well suited
for this particular application. The Wärtsilä power plant offers high simple
cycle efficiency, and little deration on the electrical power at the elevated
site conditions", says Joost Bos, Business Development Manager at Wärtsilä
Energy Solutions.

Wärtsilä has a strong footprint in Africa with an installed base of more than
6500 MW. Globally, Wärtsilä's installed base is more than 60 GW in 176
