Special guests Wärtsilä CEO Håkan Agnevall, and President, Wärtsilä Energy & EVP Wärtsilä Sushil Purohit.
With 3.3GW of Wärtsilä installed based in up to 98% of Caribbean Islands, we are no stranger to our market. Our customer base includes utilities, independent power producers focused on tourism market, and other industries. Our company’s global vision resonates in our Caribbean market as we all strive to walk the path towards 100% renewables in a reliable and cost efficient manner. Our solutions prove to be future-proof and flexible to balance the energy systems for our market, driven by an energy increasing demand to cope with the ever growing tourism industry and economic development of the Islands.
In the Caribbean, we see ourselves as more than business partners, as we have worked hand in hand with CARILEC (Caribbean Utilities Association) through many years of support to our Islands facing hurricanes on a yearly basis. Working with CARILEC brings us together as Islanders to find solutions to our unique situations, and to share best practices and business solutions.
On this series of interviews, we interconnect our high level messaging of renewables integration and future fuels, to our Caribbean market development. The dialogue is moderated by Edmund Phillips, Business Development Manager, and co-hosted by Rodney George, Senior Business Development Manager.
