Aqualectra opens Dokweg 2B in February

new plantWILLEMSTAD - If all goes well, the utility company Aqualectra will open a new diesel power station on the Dokweg in February 2018. It can produce 40 megawatts per day. In total, the company has 168 megawatts of diesel units in operation. Not all of them are in production because wind and solar energy are the company’s priority right now.

Aqualectra produces up to 60 megawatts daily. Curacao daily consumes around 128 megawatts. The new plant can also run on gas, but the purchase of it is still too expensive.
