Low emissions and fuel flexibility stood in the foreground when designing the 123 MWe powerplant based on seven 18V51/60 DF engines. After commissioning and start-up in 2014 the plant initially operates on diesel fuel as LNG supply to the island is still under development. The power plant however is well prepared to conveniently change over to gas fuel at a later stage.
