Featured project - Fiji biomass project

03. October 2017

Most remote islands use reciprocating engines with heavy fuel oil or diesel for power generation. However, many island states have renewable energy policies in place and are working on its implementation.

Earlier this year our licensee LAWI Engineering GmbH  from Germany  commissioned a multi-fuel boiler island for a 12 MWe biomass plant in Fiji. This power plant generates base load power for the Fijian public grid and is expected to annually reduce CO2 emissions by more than 50,000 tonnes. For many islands in the tropics biomass is a very interesting fuel to:

a) generate renewable electricity or heat/cooling,

b) use locally available feedstocks, and

c) create direct and indirect long-term employment.

We congratulate LAWI  to this interesting project and are looking forward to join LAWI in further projects delivering renewable energy to the remoter parts of our world.
