Reducing the environmental impacts and pollution of power plants is at the heart of BWSC’s activities to always provide “Ever better energy”.
There are many ways to act and that is the case of Guam Power Authority (GPA) and Marianas Energy Co. (MEC) who selected BWSC to convert their 2-stroke generation units from Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) to Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) on Piti Power Plant.
Now that the project is completed, the SOx emissions will drastically decrease by 99% or more, together with particulates by approximately 50%, and CO2 emissions by roughly 70%. The local air quality for nearby residents and the environment will notably improve due to the pollution’s reduction.
This project is part of GPA’s Clean Energy Master Plan to use cleaner fuel and complies with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations and will also ensure that the facility continue to operate in the many years to come.
