The technology group Wärtsilä and Empresa Generadora de Electricidad Haina, one of the largest power generation companies in the Dominican Republic, have signed a commissioning agreement that converts the Quisqueya 2 power plant to natural gas operation. The 215 MW Flexicycle plant was installed in 2013, and is powered by 12 Wärtsilä 50DF dual-fuel engines. The engines have been liquid-optimised until now as only heavy fuel oil has been available. The commissioning project contract was signed in September 2019. The project is expected to be completed by mid-2020.

The two companies have also signed a long-term service agreement covering all the Wärtsilä power plants owned and/or operated by EGE Haina. The agreement was signed in October 2019 and runs until the end of 2022. It will allow accurate predictability of spare part and maintenance costs for the Quisqueya 2, Sultana del Este, and Palenque power plants. The total installed capacity of the three plants is approximately 400 MW.

The Sultana del Este plant operates on nine Wärtsilä 46 engines, while the Palenque plant runs with four Wärtsilä Vasa 32LN engines.
