BEL now projects late July for the Commissioning of the San Pedro Mobile Gas Turbine Facility after key part fails

Posted: Tuesday, June 18, 2024. 3:07 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Belize Electricity Limited (BEL) faces further delay with the commissioning of the 20-megawatt San Pedro Town gas turbine facility after a key part failed during commissioning.

The gas turbine should have been online by now, but the power company says it has been delayed to the end of July or early August. BEL and the installation contractor are presently procuring a replacement transformer to be delivered and installed on site.

BEL has been publishing regular updates on power demand on Ambergris Caye during peak demand hours and, when necessary, reducing power to certain areas on the island which is currently powered by a 17.4 megawatt submarine cable connected from the mainland at Maskall, Belize District. The gas turbine is expected to supplement this interconnection and further ease pressure on the national grid which remains mostly dependent on power from Mexico.

BEL remains committed to providing safe and reliable energy solutions to customers in San Pedro and throughout the country and promises to keep customers informed of any further developments in the completion of the San Pedro Gas Turbine Project as they occur.
