MAN Diesel & Turbo built a new power plant in the Solomon Islands

MAN Diesel & Turbo has completed the construction of a new power plant in the Solomon Islands, near the capital Honiara, and signed a contract to take full responsibility for the plant’s installations and design. The project was launched with the help of experts from Denmark and Australia. This was one of the largest projects (Lungga Project) in the Solomon Islands in the last 20 years and the power plant will soon restore electricity in Honiara. MAN’s four MAN 9L 27/38 engines will run all the power and add 10 megawatts to the power plant. Solomon Islands has a large number of islands in the southern Pacific. The capital of Hoinara is estimated to have about 523,000 inhabitants.
