Used as gensets for a new base-load power plant, the engines will ensure power supply for the Peruvian city of Iquitos. The output from the new power plant will replace the supply from the obsolete capacity of the local network operator.

The project is logistically demanding and needs to follow a very strict timetable. Iquitos is one of the largest cities in the South American Andes country of Peru and is like an island in the midst of the tropical rain forest. There are no roads leading to the city, which is accessible only by air or river.

The delivery of the engines is therefore dependent on an adequate high-water level of the Amazon. It is only during the high-water season that the engines can be transported with a barge across the approximately two thousand kilometers up the river to Iquitos. If the high-water is missed, the window of opportunity to deliver the engines will close for an entire year.

The contractual partner of MAN Diesel & Turbo responsible for Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC) of the power plant is the Israeli company Telemenia. “Telemenia and MAN Diesel and Turbo look back on a more than decade-long partnership and successful cooperation in an impressive number of projects, many of which have been very demanding”, says Howard Barnes, Senior Vice President at MAN Diesel & Turbo and Global Head of Sales for the Power Plant business. “The high level of trust that is essential to work together in a project logistically as ambitious as this one comes from that long standing partnership. We have been conquering three continents together so far and I am confident there will be more in the future.” Both companies have successfully cooperated in more than ten projects on three continents over the past 15 years.

In addition to supplying the engines and most of the mechanical equipment, MAN Diesel & Turbo will also monitor the installation and take charge of the start-up operations. The seven MAN engines belong to the so-called "B.2" generation of the 32/44 CR and have additional improved performance features. The technical superiority of MAN engines was also crucial for being awarded the project: "We can generate the required electric power with fewer units than the competitors," explains Dr. Hermann Kröger, Senior Vice President and Head of the Power Plant business at MAN Diesel & Turbo. "For customers, this means less capital investment in the acquisition and lower operating costs."
