Wartsila to Ship Two Generator Sets as Emergency Relief

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 12/20/2013, Location: Asia

Wartsila is shipping two generator sets to be used to ease the local power shortage on the island of Cebu in the Philippines. Cebu was one of the regions most damaged in November by Typhoon Haiyan, the strongest ever storm to make landfall. Local Wartsila companies have also donated funds and necessary supplies to the storm-stricken people.

The two 107 kilowatt generator sets will be shipped from Rotterdam at the end of December.

“By Wartsila standards these might not be huge engines, but you have to remember where they are going. Fuel availability is a constant problem in the disaster area. Both of these engines are still powerful enough to make a significant contribution locally. Just one of them could easily power a small hospital or machinery on a construction site,” explains Erwin Vanderkerff, Managing Director of Wartsila in the Philippines.

After the engines reach Cebu, they will be shipped to where they are needed the most. Electricity has been in short supply in the region ever since the storm, and there is a special need for generators that can be easily deployed and moved from one location to another on an as needed basis.

To make sure the engines are properly run and maintained, the local Wartsila team is planning to send a field service engineer to supervise the installation and operation of the generators.
