Roatan Electric Company (RECO) contributes to the development of Roatán and the improvement of the quality of life of its inhabitants with the generation of electric power through the modern and technological plant of Combustión Limpia based on LPG gas. The generation plant provides cleaner, more reliable and efficient energy to customers in the municipalities of Roatán and Santos Guardiola.
The facilities of the plant based on LPG Gas have an electric power generation plant integrated by four high efficiency Wärtsilä engines, with a generation capacity of 28 MW. The equipment is state-of-the-art, manufactured by the Finnish company Wärtsilä, a world leader in plant technology for the generation of electrical energy. The generators of the plant are fed by propane gas, considered a clean combustion since it does not contain impurities or particulate material. This reduces the emission of gases (such as nitrogen oxide) by up to 95% compared to diesel, which makes it environmentally friendly. With the new propane-based generation plant, RECO provides a reliable energy supply, increasing environmental and safety standards for the well-being of Roatan residents and visitors; improving the conditions for the economic and commercial development of the island.
