Wärtsilä to supply LNG engines to Nigerian cement factory

Contract signing between regional director of Wärtsilä Energy Business Magnus Miemois and BUA Group CEO Abdul Samad Rabiu

Finnish technology group Wärtsilä will supply a dual-fueled engine power plant to a Nigerian cement production facility.

Wärtsilä said on Wednesday that the 48 MW plant was ordered by the BUA Group following the decision to construct a new cement line in Sokoto, Nigeria.

The plant will operate without connection to the grid and provide the power needed to serve the new cement line 3 at the Sokoto cement production facility.

It will operate on five Wärtsilä 34DF dual-fuel engines running primarily on LNG but with the capability to switch to low pour fuel oil if necessary, unlike the facility’s two existing power plants which operate on heavy fuel oil.

The new Wärtsilä solution will run on clean-burning LNG and will have a far lower environmental impact.

The equipment is scheduled for delivery at the end of 2019, and the new plant is expected to become operational in mid-2020.
