  • USA : Wrtsil Supplies 50 MW Power Plant to Help Integration of Solar Energy in Hawaii
    October 27, 2014
    Wärtsilä will supply a 50 MW Smart Power Generation power plant to Hawaiian Electric Company on the island of Oahu. The plant will help enable the integration of more solar photovoltaic (PV) generation on the island. The project requires approval by the Hawaii Public Utilities Commission. If approved, the power plant is scheduled to be operational in 2017.

    The power station will run on a biofuel blend, which will include liquid fuels and natural gas when liquefied natural gas (LNG) becomes available on the island, and it is part of the plan to reduce the island's reliance on oil and coal-based generation. The plant will consist of six Wärtsilä 34DF engines with combined output of 50 MW.
