A steady power flow is essential in the oil refining business. Especially during a high-stakes construction of a new energy plant.

“Energyst came through for us, delivering
reliable primary power and dedicated people”

Ibrahim Talba Malla, Chief Executive Officer, SONARA

“We decided to appoint Energyst as our preferred partner in this high-stakes project, convinced they would ensure maximum production opportunities.”

Close cooperation was crucial in creating a custom solution for this client

As soon as all requirements were determined and SONARA accepted the proposal, the equipment – diesel generators as well as transformers and ancillaries – was shipped to the site and went into operation within a few weeks, using a 100% local staff. With the project well underway and Energyst’s equipment fully meeting the refinery’s electricity needs, SONARA and Energyst are constantly looking for ways to further strengthen the partnership. Jacob Maree: “During the complete term of our contract, we have a permanent team of local engineers and technicians on site to operate the power plant. Thanks to our Cameroon team, we are able to perfectly understand our client’s needs and respond accordingly.” Ibrahim Talba Malla adds: “Since the final commissioning of Energyst’s power solution, SONARA has had a production of 100% without any power interruptions. That’s what we call Real Energy!”

An efficient workflow cannot be realised in a flash, so Energyst took the collaboration one step further

“Energyst’s successful approach is twofold”, says Alain Wa Lonla. “Firstly, they went to extremes to set up a reliable, temporary power solution. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, they showed their commitment by fully understanding our production process. On a day-to-day basis, this means that their team adapts scheduled maintenance and daily check-ups to SONARA’s production schedules, which results in a highly efficient workflow and a steady uptime. We can – literally and figuratively – feel the energy!”

It takes personal as well as technical commitment to stay focused and deliver constant quality

With a growth from 3.5 to 4 MW, the production of electricity is more reliable than ever. Energyst’s smart custom power solution has an impressive impact on the complete construction process of the new power plant. SONARA’s Ibrahim Talba Malla: “Energyst came through for us, delivering reliable primary power and dedicated people. They demonstrate their technical expertise daily through a high level of personal attention and collaboration. On this relatively small but very satisfying high-impact project, everything comes together perfectly. Thanks to Energyst, the future shines bright for SONARA!”
