BWSC is sponsoring and participating in the 19th Africa Energy Forum (AEF) which will take place in Copenhagen on 7-9 June 2017. The AEF is the global investment meeting for Africa’s power, energy, infrastructure and industrial sectors bringing together 75 per cent of Africa’s energy ministries, utilities and regulators to meet and do business with power investors from around the world.

For more than three decades, BWSC has supplied 170 power plants to 53 countries with a total generating capacity in excess of 3,400 MW together with long term Technical Support or Operation & Maintenance provided for more than 1,600 MW. BWSC has demonstrated solid results for the past 15 years and has obtained long-standing AAA credit rating and a Silver diploma by Bisnode.  In 2016, BWSC’s annual revenue was EUR 395 million.

BWSC originates from the historical Burmeister & Wain, which has built and installed diesel engines for power plants since 1904.  BWSC was established as a separate specialist company in 1980 and has since 1990 been a subsidiary company of Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding Co. Ltd. (MES).

BWSC's range of services includes project development and financial engineering as well as assistance in the planning phase, plant design, turnkey supply of the plant and subsequent Technical Support or Operation and Maintenance.

Five major deals and mergers took place onsite at AEF 2016, indicating the market position of AEF as a legitimate deal-making platform. Activities like these also demonstrate the real achievements on the continent over the last decade as more and more projects reach financial close and begin to light up homes across the continent.
