MAN Energy Solutions has completed the expansion of the Sund power plant near Tórshavn, the Faroese capital, and successfully handed the plant over to local energy supplier Elfelagið SEV. With this, four MAN 9L51/60 engines have been successfully integrated into the islands' hybrid energy-system and will complement the existing power station with an additional 37 MW power generation, as well as district heating capacity.

To supply electricity to the almost 52,000 islanders, SEV relies on an intelligent combination of renewable energy sources, storage solutions and power-plant engines to ensure grid stability. Danish power-plant specialist, Burmeister & Wain Scandinavian Contractor A/S, was primarily responsible for construction of the Sund power plant, which is the largest of the Faroe’s three engine-driven power plants. Besides these, SEV also operates other, hydroelectric power plants as well as several wind farms and energy-storage solutions. In this way, all available resources of the islands can be optimally used for power supply.

The MAN 51/60 engines are intended to run at 80% load and thus to generate district heating with the remaining 20% serving as a variable reserve.
