The technology group Wartsila has signed an extended renewal agreement to its service agreement with Energy Developments Ltd of Australia. The agreement covers the 53 MW baseload gas engine power plant at the McArthur River zinc mine in Northern Territory, Australia. The original ten-year service agreement was signed in 2013. However, after only six years this has been extended for a further ten years, and the maintenance approach has been changed from pre-planned, scheduled maintenance periods to condition-based and predictive maintenance with advisory contract. The agreement renewal was signed in Q3, 2019.

The change in the scope of the agreement, from guaranteeing the plant’s availability based on pre-planned scheduled maintenance, to the condition-based and predictive maintenance approach came in response to the customer’s developing needs. The change highlights the flexibility of Wartsila’s lifecycle support and readiness to customise solutions based on customer needs.

Wartsila’s capabilities in providing remote monitoring support from Wartsila Expertise Centres to power plant installations result in lower operating costs and greater overall plant efficiency, and represent a prime example of how the latest digital technologies are transforming the energy sector into a new era of flexibility and high efficiency.

EDL manages a portfolio of power plants in Australia, North America and Europe.
