Barbados signs Wartsila to build “Clean Energy Bridge” power plant

The technology group Wärtsilä has won the contract to supply a 33 MW flexible power plant on a fast-track basis to the Barbados Light & Power Company Limited (BLPC), the utility company on the Caribbean island of Barbados. The power plant will be supplied as an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) project. The project will bolster reliability of the Barbados electricity system and integration of renewables into it. The order was booked with Wärtsilä in December 2019.
