Wärtsilä, NRCC signs asset management agreement

12 February 2018

The technology group Wärtsilä and Saudi Arabia based Northern Region Cement Company (NRCC) has signed a new three-year asset management agreement for NRCC’s power plant in Turaif, Saudi Arabia. Wärtsilä will continue to be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the power plant and to ensure the reliability and availability of its operations. This agreement, signed in October 2017, is an extension of Wärtsilä’s previous service agreements for NRCC’s power plant.

The agreement covers all aspects of operating and maintaining NRCC’s power plant, including the day-to-day operation of the power plant as well as preventive and predictive maintenance. The power plant’s condition is continuously remotely monitored by Wärtsilä’s Customer Centre in Dubai to create a holistic view of the plant and to provide expert technical advisory and data analysis services. These enable the making of knowledge-based, predictive decisions to ensure the plant’s reliability and efficiency.

Over the years, Wärtsilä has also carried out electrical and automation services to improve the performance and extend the lifecycle of NRCC’s power plant.
