Le Moule Power Station is a 102-megawatt (MW) coal- and biomass-fired plant in Guadeloupe.
The map below shows the location of the plant in Le Moule, Guadeloupe.
The plant runs on a combination of coal imported from Colombia and Venezuela, and bagasse, or sugar cane waste. It is located next to the Gardel sugar factory.
In November 2018 Albioma announced that Unit 3 would be converted to run entirely on biomass by 2020. As of November 2020, the company's website stated that conversion of Unit 3 would be complete by 2023.
