VTTI is working with its co-owner Vitol to convert the US Virgin Islands’ power generation from heavy fuels to LPG on behalf of WAPA, the islands’ power authority. IPOS (Island Project and Operating Services) will oversee the installation and upgrading of all relevant infrastructure and will then operate the facility for the next five years. The switch to LPG will result in reliable, cleaner and more efficient electricity generation (20% less CO2) and cost savings of circa 30% or $90 million per year.
