The paper describes a 100 kW power generation system installed at Port Blair, Andaman Islands utilising the waste wood from a saw mill and a diesel engine genset. The performance of the total system and its elements is presented along with economics of operation. Some realistic situations are considered for which the effective cost of power and the pay-back period for the investment are evaluated. The economics is compared with that of a similar system of 3.7 kW capacity.
