BPL restores clean fuel to Baillou Hill rental units


Bahamas Power and Light is doing a major remediation exercise after more than 87,000 barrels or more than 3.5 million gallons of fuel were contaminated in April.

The company in a statement says the incident is currently being investigated, while Sun Oil, the oil distributor is working with BPL to remedy the situation, that affected both BPL-owned and rental units at its Baillou Hill and Clifton Pier power stations.

BPL says through its action plan, Sun Oil has restored clean fuel to the Baillou Hill rental units.

The remediation efforts so far have resulted in a reliable supply of fuel to BPL engines and rentals, and barring a catastrophe, energy supply is expected to remain at normal levels, according to BPL.
