$1 billion plan to use coal-fired power in Guatemala

Tuesday, March 22, 2011


Sugar mills in Guatemala aim to invest $1 billion to generate electricity using coal in place of bunker fuel.

The Association of Independent Cogenerators, which represents the mills, said it aims to raise the capacity of the eight mills from 320 megawatts to 500 megawatts by 2018.

The aim is to use coal in place of bunker fuel in the mills’ power plants, which use bagasse during the cane harvest.
