Wärtsilä Oyj Abp: Wärtsilä wins a EUR 120 million order for power generation

Wärtsilä Corporation, Company announcement, 10 April 2015 at 4 pm EET

Wärtsilä wins a EUR 120 million order for power generation

Wärtsilä has signed a major contract to supply power generation capacity for a
Europe-based customer with international operations. The value of the
equipment delivery contract is approximately EUR 120 million. The order
includes Wärtsilä 50 platform gensets and auxiliary equipment. The contract
was included in Wärtsilä's order intake in the first quarter of 2015.

The Wärtsilä 50 engine platform is able to operate on dual fuel, gas and
liquid fuel versions. The first model, Wärtsilä 50DF was launched in early
2000. Designed for high output with efficiency and low emissions, the
dual-fuel solution represented a breakthrough in the marine LNG carrier
market, replacing steam turbines as the preferred power source. For power
plants, engine versions fired by specific gaseous and liquid fuels followed
suit. Approximately 700 Wärtsilä 50 engines have been sold to the marine
sector and 300 for energy sector applications.

This latest order is another endorsement of Wärtsilä's Smart Power Generation,
which provides the operational flexibility and capacity agility to complement
traditional forms of power generation, thereby helping to improve the
performance of entire power grids. This power system optimisation provides
notable benefits, including significant energy cost savings and reductions in
carbon emissions.
