CABINET APPROVES PURCHASE OF 30MW NEW HEAVY FUEL OIL GENERATOR SETS FOR KINOYA POWER STATION BY THE FEA

7/30/2013
Cabinet has given its approval to the Fiji Electricity Authority (FEA) to purchase an additional 30MW Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) Generator sets for its Kinoya Power Station to improve the security and reliability of power supply to the Central Region of Viti Levu.

Cabinet based its decision on a submission by the Minister for Works, Transport and Energy, Captain (N) Timoci Lesi Natuva.

The Minister said that the new generator sets will ensure that power disruption to all customers in the Central Division is at its minimum in the event of failure of hydropower generation at Monasavu/Nadarivatu or failure of the 132KV transmission line from Wailoa to Cunningham Road.

The Minister also said that given the importance of this project, FEA will be funding this investment through domestic borrowing.
