Dual-fuel engines used at Bermudian power plant
08 August 2018
MAN Energy Solutions in consortium with Danish power-plant specialist, Burmeister & Wain Scandinavian Contractor A/S (BWSC), has won the USD 100M contract to build a 56 MW power plant in Bermuda for Bermuda Electric Light Company Limited (BELCO). BELCO is Bermuda's sole supplier of electricity and operates a generating plant, as well as transmission and distribution systems, throughout the island.
The project will see the construction of replacement generation comprising 4 × MAN 51/60DF dual-fuel engines, delivering 56 MW in power, and all associated infrastructure.
The new engines will provide a reliable and fuel-efficient power supply while complying with all the latest and most stringent environmental regulations. They will replace the nine (of 17) aged engines that BELCO plans to retire between now and 2020.
The engines will be located at BELCO’s existing Pembroke facility with construction estimated to take approximately 18 months.
