POWER Engineers is providing design and owner’s engineering services for the Pulama Lanai Development Company in Hawaii.  Pulama Lanai is constructing a 5 MW power plant with four reciprocating engines (consisting of Caterpillar and Wartsila generating equipment) that will provide energy for a new desalination process. 

Pulama Lanai owns and operates the Four Seasons resorts on the island. POWER is providing services by preparing and evaluating RFQs for the major equipment. Our support also involves engineering design of the units and operational support. 

The project has been very challenging because of the remoteness of the island.  POWER is assisting in the fuel supply infrastructure; the plant uses fuels such as liquefied natural gas (LNG) and diesel.  The project will be the first and largest LNG project in Hawaii.
