This project includes the supply and installation of 2 new 1.5 MW Caterpillar generators at the Honiara Power Station. This project is aimed at providing at least a G-1 level of supply reliability. The new generators are also used as a backup supply for Honiara when generation capacity in Lungga is reduced for reasons such as maintenance.
The project was commisioned on 26 February 2014 by the then Minister for Mines, Energy and Rural Electrification, Hon. Moses Garu.
