Lerwick Power Station’s new engine arrives for installation

Energy company Wärtsilä Energy recently delivered a new engine to the Lerwick Power Station, which is expected to be up and running early next year.

The 100-tonne unit was delivered by boat to the isles, and escorted to the power station by police late at night to avoid disruption to drivers.
