Saudi Arabia: Hail Cement has renewed its three-year asset management agreement with Finland’s Wärtsilä for the power plant at its Turbah plant. Wärtsilä provides guarantees for the performance of the power plant and ensures the reliability and availability of its operations. The operations of the power plant are remotely monitored from a Wärtsilä Expertise Centre for real-time data gathering and analysis. The agreement, signed in November 2017, is already the second renewal of Wärtsilä’s service agreement for the power plant in Turbah, the first agreement being signed in 2012.

“Wärtsilä has been responsible for the full operation and maintenance of our power plant in Turbah for about six years now. We have been satisfied with its flexibility, quality of service and emphasis on safety, and are happy to continue our co-operation with them,” said Matar Al Zahrani, chief executive officer (CEO) of Hail Cement.

The agreement covers the operation and maintenance of Hail Cement Factory’s power plant, including the day-to-day operation of the power plant, preventive and predictive maintenance as well as plant operations manpower, health and safety management. The 53MW base load power plant is equipped with seven Wärtsilä 32 engines and provides energy for Hail Cement Company’s cement factory as well as for the nearby residential area.
