1 January 1998 is a significant date for Wrtsil in India. The new year began on a high note the signing of the companys first Operations & Maintenance (O&M) agreement. The customer was Gujarat Ambuja Cements Ltd (GACL) and the facility was their 56 MW (4 x Wrtsil 12V46, 2 x Wrtsil 18V32) power plant at Kodinar, Gujarat. The event marked the beginning of a new growth chapter for Wrtsil India and the companys first step towards offering a complete Power Plant Solution to its customers.

Wrtsil has come a long way in the six years since then, creating added value for shareholders and customers by applying competent management, skilled resources and a structured, systematic and environmentally friendly approach to plant operations.
1000 O&M megawatts

1 June 2003 marked yet another chapter when Wrtsil signed an O&M agreement with Indo Rama Synthetics Limited for their 52.6 MW power plant. This was an important landmark as the power plant was

already six years old when the O&M agreement was signed and it demonstrates Indo Ramas confidence in Wrtsils abilities to commit and deliver on a long-term basis. In August 2003, Wrtsil India celebrated delivery of the 100th engine under O&M contract, while exactly six months later, in February 2004, it was time to record another turning point Wrtsil India now had 500 MW covered by O&M contracts. Today Wrtsil India manages 52 power plants 110 engines totalling 561.5 MW and by the end of 2004 an additional 60 megawatts will come on stream. The next obvious target is 1000 MW. With a compounded average growth rate for O&M in excess of 20% per year, Wrtsil India has left its footprints all over this vast country, averaging one O&M mobilization every 1.5 months. Wrtsil India O&M, directly and through associates or subcontractors, today employs more than 500 people and manages assets worth over 10 billion Indian rupees (200 million euros).
Getting more from Wrtsil

Over the years, Wrtsil India O&M has successfully developed customized solutions

for both small and large power plants. At one end of the spectrum, Wrtsil operates and maintains a 2.2 MW power plant at RSWM, Mandapam, and at the other end the 61.2 MW power plant at Gujarat Ambuja Cements, Kodinar. Recently, Wrtsil signed a 10-year O&M agreement with Kannapiran Mills for a 1.5 MW power plant. Through this process of customizing, Wrtsil manages the diverse needs of customers operating across a wide range of industry, justifying its reputation of a Total Solution Provider. O&M as a concept has been evolving rapidly around the world, its boundaries expanding to cover an ever greater range of responsibilities, and India has been no different. Indian customers increasingly expect more from Wrtsil and see in Wrtsil a partner they can trust. As of August 2004, Wrtsil India O&M has just concluded an O&M deal in principle for the operation and maintenance of a 15 MW coal-based steam turbine generator now being commissioned. Once again this demonstrates the confidence placed by customers in our ability to meet the promises we make on a long-term basis. n
