56 MW Bermuda Project Planned

26 July 2018

MAN Energy Solutions and Danish power-plant specialist Burmeister & Wain Scandinavian Contractor A/S (BWSC), will build a 56 MW power plant in Bermuda for Bermuda Electric Light Company Ltd. (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 is worth US$100 million, the company said.

The project will see the construction of replacement generation comprising four MAN 51/60DF dual-fuel engines, delivering 56 MW in power, and all associated infrastructure.

The new engines will replace the nine (of 17) engines that BELCO is retiring between now and 2020.

“We’re very happy to have won a competitive bid process and to work once again with BWSC, broadly recognized as a leader within the EPC sector,” said Wayne Jones, chief sales officer, MAN Energy Solutions. “The dual-fuel technology of the MAN 51/60 DF engine offers the operational flexibility required for such critical infrastructure. BELCO will continue to use fuel oil until a National Fuel Policy has been developed and implemented for Bermuda but rest assured that our engines will generate the required electrical energy with great efficiency and maximum reliability – regardless of fuel choice.”
