[www.inewsguyana.com] – During 2014, major overhauls are scheduled on 11 of the 13 Wartsila operated and maintained units at the Guyana Power and Light (GPL), with seven of those overhauls being due by the end of July 2014 along with the commissioning of the new generation facility at Vreed-en-Hoop.
The overhauls are performed in keeping with manufacturers’ recommendations and are expected to last for 10 days each. They also form part of GPL’s rigid maintenance program aimed at ensuring efficient and reliable power generation.
Overhauls are executed to ensure that all engines are in proper working condition to facilitate a reliable supply of electricity to our valued customers and to mitigate any potential risk(s) that may result from lack of maintenance.
GPL wishes to assure all customers that our Company will continue to maintain all of its generating engines across the country to ensure their continued reliability to supply quality electricity.
